All icons shows up when key is inserted in the ignition switch, but failed to start-up when switched-on with clutch pressed.

The car is going into gear but not pulling

I want to take my car to Valvoline Instant for a transmission flush because of cost compared to the dealer. Last recall I had completed at dealer I did inquire about flush and they mentioned doing a reset. Is this a relearn of the diagnostics? Is it required? I do currently have some hard shifting at times. Nothing major, and usually only when I am hard accelerating. I have no error codes, but factory warranty is expired, but I have a extended that requires routine maintenance.

The purge valve on a 2010 Kia Rio located

when car is is in park and turning off the engine the key wont turn past the acc position to lock so I can remove the key.

Drove 14 miles home after dealer performed Xmission fluid change. Smelled burning on way home. No fluid registered on dipstick when got home. Dealer was called said bring car back. Drove 14 miles back to dealership. Since "corrected", whine has remained while driving. Was the 28 miles enough to create the problem? What should be checked? How large and expensive to understand if problem. Or cost to correct potential damage?
Vehicle was pristine when purchased, and cared for very carefully.

where is the ecm located on 2004 kia optima

After reading many q and A's I would like to know what should be my next step. I know that tune up, fuel pump, anti-theft system, and possibly transmission change. I mainly feel a hesitation when taking off into first and second gear. Also the engine feels tight possibly a belt. I do know that it is time to change the timing belt as well. Should I just do all of them where should I start. We have taken it to have the check engine light codes tested.

That's all I need to know is how many fuel injectors are there?

Whining noise gets louder the faster you go and comes from the torque converter driveplate area of the engine-tranny. Checked tranny fluid and filter is internal in this transmission. 115,000 miles on it.

The alternator belt was already bad in it. Is there a restart button on the engine?

The rpm will intermittently increase when up shifting, acting like it is in neutral, before going into gear. The check engine light (or any other error light) does not come on. This happens when it is cold and sometimes under acceleration. Is this a TCM problem or does the transmission need to be replaced?

I put a new starter on it and it still clicking every time i turn the ignition and i bought it around 10:00a.m. and stop working after 1:00p.m., it just be clicking, people say it might be the engine may be lock, or the timing belt , the starter is new just bought the starter

The problem began with a beep beep sound coming through the speakers now no sound whatsoever. Now, there are some lights illuminated on the speedometer panel area such as traction control and two others.

where do you put the spark o plugs on a kia rio? does it goes on the front side or on the top, or it goes on the back side?

Same thing happens everyday

what gaskets and or sealents are needed to prevent leaks

brake light came on while driving yesterday. no sound or blinking and brakes fine.

What do you suggest? Won't pass emissions due to readiness monitors.

Car will run good i u give it gas slowly but rapid give it gas motor shakes and misses when u ride it if you go down on the pedal in 4th 5th when rpms are lower. starts good, idels good please help

I blew a bunch of interior lights and clock light trying to replace a bulk

Why want my kia take gas fast? You have to work the nozzle slow if you don't it will splash back out.

I had the timing belt replaced 25,000 miles ago about 2.5 years past? It is now leaking oil from the gasket covers. Should this be happening in such a short time?

hr and it will start and run another abt twenty mins and stop. HELP

The wife's car , she can't find anything in manual about this

Check engine light comes on it go have it checked said my oil control valve on both banks was bad so I fixed this problem took on test drive about 20 miles ran good oil light still on and then got off exit and van just lost all power and no acceleration pedal so I guess it's in limp mode I had it towed to a shop where they are saying it's needs a moter but it still starts up just sounds like it's running on 2 cylinders they took off valve cover and it has some oil gunk but it's not knocking or smoking. I don't think. Motor is gone in it could it be anything else some people have told me TPS but don't want to replace a lot of parts if I still going to have to get a motor 4,000

This problem only happens some of the time. Also their are no warning indicator lights coming on to tell me something is going on.It runs just fine except for this issue.
They ran a diagnostic check at the dealership and found nothing wrong.
