This ordeal is far from over.... Yesterday I Was able to drove down to tha AC shop no problem, but when it was my turn to check the car it wouldn't start, engine turn tried to start but not rev. So I have to call someone pick me up, so I could go pickup the mechanic and brought him to the shop.
When arrive he tested the car, tried to get it scan but there were no codes registered. He check fuel pump ok!, then he tried disconnecting the MAF sensor and the car started. So he tells the MAF is blown for good and that I should leave it disconnected until I get a new one. I heard of couple times before of owners that use their Rios with the MAF disconnected. That was kind of a relief cause I wanted the car Ac checked and fix. So I leave the car at the shop 2 hours later they call me to said is ready I can pick it up. I get in the car AC feels good, try to drive it home but cannot get past 25mph or 2500rpm's cause the car would hog(drowns)**Sorry here I'm using literal translation of the terms we used in Spanish to describe this. The car would run at slow speed and will not shut down or give up like before, just drive below 25 mph. Now I got a code check engine, but have to wait till tomorrow to have check out.

Turns out the code was for the MAF Sensor (P0102), order a new one from ebay, got it one week after put in did a test drive - Check engine off, I'd say about 90% normal, there still some loss of power noticeable. Well had my wife drove it for a 25 miles trip about 20 miles the check engine came on but still was driveable. So she reached her destination, park the car leave it for about 3hrs, came back the wouldn't stay on, it would start for a couple of seconds and stalls. Checked the code: P1166 HO2 Sensor Bank 1 not a severe enough problem for the car not to start. Leave it, went back today with coworker had a look at it try and start it right up without anything being done to it. It ran for about 5 mins then started stalling again. Check codes and still the same, clear the codes, but still same symptoms... Coworker took a look at it, check MAF and AIC connectors, swapped Fuel pump relay with AC relay just to see how it behave. The car started but stall after a while, then started right up and was able to run it around for a little. Wife took around to run errands... will see...

The car would run fine for short distances, but on the way back home the problems started back again, loss of power, Check Engine on. Now the codes are P0325- Knock sensor, P1529-Transmission Control Unit Request for MIL On , P0741- Torque Converter sensor.

I will try to replce the Knock sensor before anything else, the symptoms I have read about the knock sensor are compatible with my issues. The issue is I dont know where it is located the knock sensor.Any Help with that?

In my ordeal with my kia Rio I've been left to wonder if my issues could be related to a failing fuel pump:

Most definitively symptoms could be related to a failing fuel pump. Anyone else had them fail??

I know that with my Rio, I am having a off and on issue where I don't see the tachometer go past 3000 rpm, drive thru it a couple times and then I get full rpm again, not that I try to go much past 3000. My dad thinks it might be my fuel filter. I know just before I bought it in June the timing belt was replaced after the previous driver let it break

Derek make sure your timing belt is not off by a tooth, check out Ron's Sticky on timing belt! Mine was off 1 tooth on the intake side so that caused loos of power and hesitation.
