20 Most Recent 2002 Kia Rio Questions & Answers

Have you checked the fluid level?Was there any oil leak spots under the car?
Correct any low fluid level and give it a try.
If the fluid is at the correct level,disconnect the battery for 10 mins then reconnect and try it again,if it still won't work you may have to have a transmission expert take a look at it.
You can put in a used transmission if needed and not spend lots of $$$ for a rebuilt trans,or just buy another complete vehicle to drive and not fix your 2002.

Bad connection at the battery. As soon as large current is demanded by the starter, you lose the connection. Make sure both terminal connections on battery are clean and tight. Now is a good time to do a voltage drop test. Watch youtube videos. Most are quite good at explaining the test. This test is great for finding a bad connection.

I didn't know liter engine size? You put it back in the same place it came from? One exploded view showed four bolts, they may be different lengths. To go further, I need more info. If the compressor pulley is belt driven, the pulley has to go on the same end as accessory belt, correct?
