My 2007 kia rio shudders when i take off from a dead stop. Any body have any ideas what it could be?

Hi Jason, If the vehicle has manual transmission it will be a problem with the clutch assembly. It is most likely to be a problem with the center boss of the clutch plate, but may also be other parts of the assembly. If it's an automatic, check the shock absorbers, the front suspension and engine mountings. There is a possibility of the problem being caused by the spyder joints or the CVs. Regards John

My 03 Kia rio wouldn't start. I gave it a jump and that got it going. I replaced the battery. The display, dome and sterio all stopped working. The car died 3 days later. Jumped it to get it to the shop and replaced my alternator. The next morning it woudn't start. I jumped it and have been disconecting the battery when I park since. Could there be a fuse killing my batteries? Just a dead fuse and need another battery? I can't afford more work done or even a shops opinion at this point.

Kia Rio makes squealing sound from passenger side of engine compartment when accelerating from a dead stop, on a turn, with the A/C on. Squealing is reduced as vehicle straigtens out of turn, and as driver lets off throttle, and gradually goes away as vehicle continues straight after turn. Problem is intermittent.

Hi, I recently got a tune-up and the valve cover gasket replaced on my 2008 kia rio. The following night when I put the car in reverse the car bucked, it did the same when I put it in drive. When I come to a complete stop and accelerate the car drags for a couple seconds before picking up speed. I went back to the mechanic and was told i have a transmission problem. Is there any possibility that the mechanic could have caused the issues i'm currently having? Thanks.


Sounds more like an air leak, get another tech to look for it. ... 2008 Kia Rio

I first thought the butterfly was gummed up, but after a good cleaning with carb. cleaner and a toothbrush I am still having the same problem. Doesn't stick at all when van isn't running. Could this be the tps or will I need a whole new throttle body, This van has 170k and still runs like a top other than sti

My 97 Grand Cherokee Laredo has the display screen for service and notification of low fluids and shows the jeep body. It tells me how many miles til my next service and so forth. I was wondering what could cause it to just start blinking and locking my doors and cutting power off to all my gauges including my speedometer while i am driving. The jeep stays running just all the gauges stop working. Any Ideas


The most likely cause of something like this in a Chrysler vehicle is a faulty Body Control Module (BCM.) I believe on the Grand Cherokee, it's located under the driver-side instrument panel. It will likely have to be replaced, but you may want to co ... 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
