Asked by Jan 06, 2014 at 12:32 PM about the 2008 Kia Rio LX

Question type: General

the weather outside makes it feel like i am in Alaska and when i go to turn my car on it is
slow when it turns over. i had about a quarter tank of gas in there and over night the
windchill dropped to like -30 degrees no joke. but every time i put iso heat in the car my
check engine light comes on, why is that?

a slow cranking car in -30 degree weather is normal. The fluids are like molassas. As far as the CEL on , you will need to get the car scanned for codes. Could be any number of things.
