  1. 2013 Kia Rio LX Hatchback 5DR Engine Light??

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    As far as the gas cap goes, I'd replace it if it doesn't click. It probably seals just fine but it's supposed to click. The cap should be covered under the 8 year/80000 mile federal emissions warrandy. Doubtful that it would cause to stop your car from accelerating, however.
  2. add remote starter

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    As far as I know the 3rd Gen Rio did not have a remote start option so there would be nothing 'plug and play'. It would have to be done with an aftermarket Kit.
  3. 2012 Kia Rio engine compartment push rivets?

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    i actually found some for our 2014 in the junkyard though it's rare to see a 3G Rio in the junkyard. Did you try the dealership?
  4. P0420 Catalytic Converter Insufficiency

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    He didn't have to pay the $270 labor, that's just what it would have cost. I had a cat replaced on a Chevy HHR we once owned under the federal emissions warranty. There is no cost to the customer.
  5. Rear Wheel Hub Assembly starting to go

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Rio rear wheel bearing assemblies have 4 mounting bolts. Where are you getting hubs for 50 bucks? Anything decent seem to start at just under 80 and goes up to as much as almost 140.........even the ones at Autozone or OReillys are about 90. Would not recommend changing just the bearings...
  6. 2013 Rio TPMS Reset Button

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Follow up on the learn cycle. The learn cycle only comes into effect when you replace any of the tire pressure monitors. If you use the ones that were already on the vehicle, they system doesn't see any changes and the light won't come on. The Rio's TPMS system is pretty basic, not at all like...
  7. Engine died

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Since you are not the original owner, at best it's at least 2 years or 46000 miles out of warranty. Under what circumstances would repairing the engine be Kia's responsibility?
  8. Air conditioning freon

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    I would hope that he has this sorted out by now, it's been two months.
  9. Help on clock spring 2013 kia rio

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    It's the part behind the steering wheel that allows the necessary electrical connections to be made regardless of the position of the steering wheel.
  10. 2013 Kia Rio (EX) ECU ECM Flash Tuning

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    I have heard of flash tuning the Stinger 3.3l V6 but never anything for the Rio.
  11. Power Locks Installation.

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Let us know how it turns out.
  12. LED replacements for brake and tail lights

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    We've owned our Rio since new in 2014. I've yet to have to change the brake/tail light bulbs.
  13. Long life brake pads

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    The OEM Sorento pads must be much better than the OEM Rio pads. My wife is fairly easy on brakes and I changed ours at just under 35K miles.
  14. Steering wheel controls

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Sometimes they just go bad. I had to replace the one with the volume controls a couple of years ago.
  15. KDM Spec Projection Headlights

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    I always thought that they were different because they have different part numbers. Found that out when we had to replace one about three years ago..
  16. KDM Spec Projection Headlights

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Headlight housings for the sedan are different physically than the ones for the hatch and are not interchangeable.
  17. No power?

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Changing the knock sensor on a 1.6 is a little tedious because it's kind of below and behind the intake manifold but it can be done without removing the manifold. There is only one knock sensor. This video is a 2012 Hyundai Accent but it's the same as a 2013 Rio.
  18. AC issue

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    110 low side while the system is running?? Way to high.
  19. Evaporator Temperature Sensor Location - Kia Rio 2016

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    You don't need a video. Easy change. Under the dash on the drivers side to the right of the gas pedal, you'll see the sensor in the side of the evaporator box. Remove the connector, turn the sensor counter clockwise and pull it out. Installation is the reverse. Part number is 97143 1M000...
  20. Ebay Cruise Control Query

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    If your steering wheel looks like this it will work.
