How do I fix my Rio?
2003 KIA RIO
The car got overheated due to a radiator leak. I changed the radiator, the car will crank but idle rough and eventually turn off and wont crank again.
have the same problem?

DEPENDING ON HOW LONG IT WAS DRIVEN WHILE OVERHEATED. IT'S POSSIBLE THAT YOU HAVE BLOWN A HEAD GASKET AND/OR DAMAGED THE HEAD
CHECK YOUR COOLANT FOR OIL AND YOUR OIL FOR WATER (THIS IS A SURE SIGN) HOWEVER, IT'S NOT A FULL TEST
YOU PROBABLY NEED TO DO A COMPRESSION TEST ON ALL OF THE CYLINDERS TO SEE IF THEY ARE WITHIN SPECS
