Hello, I am new to this site and a new 2006 Kia Rio LX owner.
2006 Kia Rio LX manual transmission 77k miles, second owner.
I've had my Rio for about 5 months now and have loved it so far.
The past few months the acceleration has not been as good as it used to be.
A few notes, and very very odd occurrences.
The engine light came on 2 months after owning it and turned out to be the purge valve, replaced it with a Kia branded purge valve. After replacing I noticed a huge improvement in the acceleration which only lasted a day or two.
A few months ago, I had gotten an alignment done and had noticed an increase in acceleration. but went away as the alignment shifted back to turning. I've checked the wear on the tires, they are in excellent condition.

Over all I have 3 issues.
1. Slow acceleration.
2. Wheel alignment keeps going off (I've replaced the struts and had an alignment done and went right back to turning)
3. With all Kia Rio's, After filling up with gas, it runs a little rough and stalls on occasion. Also seems to accelerate better with full gas tank.

I do not currently have an engine light on.

Please let me know if I've left out important information. I would appreciate any ideas on how to fix my issues.
