when should i get the lifters of kia rio changed?

Asked by Dec 25, 2012 at 11:22 AM about the 2003 Kia Rio Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my kia rio is making some noise and the belts are greasy, but the steering power fluid was changed and it has not reduced. I got all kinds of diagnostics: replace water pump and steering power pump, check the alternator, it might be the lifters...

they are loud in general, :( you can replace all and any part you wish, before throwing parts, go to the dealer, get the 100+ diagnostic, and question the service writer, or mechanic himself as they all seem to have the same problem, if they found it common, or a fix for it. you will hear it is the pump, to the cheap china metal, :(...but be sure let them diag it
