Asked by Jul 07, 2017 at 10:36 PM about the 2013 Kia Rio LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was in traffic today with the AC on, the car began idling like it was going to kill, I turned off the AC and the check engine light began flashing. As I merged over to pull over the light turned off completely. I would say it was on for about 30 seconds. Any ideas? The solid check engine light has come on 2 times in the past month or so but turned off after about a day.

Have you kept up on the maintenance? hmmmmm? did you know that KIA will give you a free tow to their garage? budget for some service work- and then call them-

My 2013 kia Rio did the exact same thing then the engine just died while I was sitting in Saturday traffic on the expressway in Chicago. Kia replaced the engine.
