Please please please, anyone?


Asked by Jun 29, 2018 at 03:15 AM about the 2008 Kia Rio

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have problem on my 2008 Kia Rio sedan (1.4 petrol, 5 manual gear, first
owner 100k km)! This random stalling (and few times turn off when i wanted
to slow down on red light and crosswalk) lasting almost a year now!!! No
warning lights come on and all diagnostic tests are perfect! Mechanics say
that the problem is to electronics, and electricians say that the problem is to
the mechanics. In authorized service they don't know anything.

I have changed crankshaft sensor, fuel pump, all services (oil, belts, filters...)
but the problem is still here aaaggggrrrrrr!

WHAT CAN I DO MORE??? (except to fill it with gasoline and set it on fire)!
Please, any advice...

for one thing i have 08 rio it only comes with one motor 1.6 in line 4 cylinder sounds like you have a vacuum leak somewhere


Thanks for your reply! My engine is 1.4 petrol, so there it is another version :). I think it's not vacuum, thought it has something to do with electronics (needle on torque sometimes move by few millimeters with no reason). The main problem is because all diagnostic tests are perfect... A lot of us have the same problem but no solution, terrible!
