thing is it can run normal for like 1 hour engine running, but then that problem develops, shutting down the engine for 15mins and starting up all is good then the it starts again the cycle goes on


Does this also mean the same with the RPms fluctuations going up and down like crazy !?!? I have a 2019 new. And I can’t stand my kia. It drives me crazy. The dealership I got my kia from told me it was a crt engine. I just got it in June and they now tell me it’s not a cvt. The sales ppl have no idea what is going on or what they are selling :’(


So question 2019 Kia Rio do have crt engines?!!! Thanks so much for your reply. I have not messed with it at all. I have plenty of pictures and videos. And in last few days my radio & car play keeps freezing and turning black!!! I’m so stressed!! I should have never left Honda!!!!
