I need some help,just put in an engine and my car stalls when i put it in drive.

Asked by Jun 26, 2017 at 08:40 PM about the 2005 Kia Rio LS

Question type: General

I have a 2005 Kia Rio and i've just put in a new used engine in it, firstly
when the engine was put it the car came on and everything but it was idling
roughly and you had to push the gas pedal right down just to get any power
out of it.So i changed the throttle body because it was recommended by my
mechanic so i did that only now the problem got worse.When i turn on the
car it has a hard start,when i rev it the engine light comes on plus it revs
oddly and idles roughly,when i put it in D or R it just stalls. I don't believe its
an engine problem i believe it maybe a wiring problem but i need some
help,does anyone know what the problem maybe?
