    Do you ever have a Check Engine Light on? If so, I would check for any codes, they will help you with tracing down the cause of the stalling problem in the majority of the cases.

    The same thing just started happening to my 04 Kia rio. It died at a stop light and all the warning lights light up I restarted it and it drove but it feels and sounds funny everytime I slow to a stop or go uphill. I am hoping to find an answer too before I resort to going to the shop.

    Look under a website called lemonlaw claims. There is a forum on there under Kia stalling. If you own a Kia Rio produced from 5/4/00-10/31/02 there was a recall in 1/04 on the engine control module. Call a Kia dealer, give them your vin number, they will reprogram the ecm at no charge to you. Home you find this helpful.
