    Ref: July 27, 2009@6:49am - 2004 Kia Rio - "VERY Slow Acceleration After Reaching Operating Temp".
    I'm trying to help my son-inlaw sort out a very similar issue with his Kia. In this post you referenced the Kia Tech Website:

    "Take a look at the KiaTech web site (see my sig for link) for diagrams showing the exact location of these components and also descriptions on how to do a basic test of the MAF measuring its output voltage".

    I've tried to find it, but it's been 6 years, so I'm sure your link is long gone. Would you mind providing it again? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Ron , I notice you have a real rarity with your Kia Elan. Memory tells me that the Elan of the 90's had an Isuzu engine. I am just curious if Kia placed a Kia engine in the final Elans
    ( such as yours ) , or if it is an Isuzu engine? In any event , you have a very desirable car
    IMO.
    Cheers,
    Darren

    Hi, Ron. PanMike here. I see you've been around the block a long time here on the Forum. I have been having many of the same codes on my 2002 Kia Rio ever since I bought it 5 months ago. I have noticed on the forum many people talking about check the grounds when having a lot of codes. Do you know where to point me to clean, tighten, or whatever I need to do with the grounds, and where are they?
    Thanks in advance. Mike (PanMike)

    Joe @ Brandon Distributing says the RF wheel isn't compatable with the Rio. Do you know anyone that has installed it on there Rio?. I asked him about Item #: 250-1483 and that is the one he says isn't compatible. Is that the model you have? How does it mount to the steering wheel?

    I'm looking to install cruise control on my 06 Rio. I've seen you posting about using the RF wheel switch. Can you send me a pic of your installation? Most of the kits I've found come with the left control that gets mounted into the steering column. My steering wheel will block the view of this mount. How do I get the kit without that control? Any help would be appreciated. Thx.
