Q: Kia Rio cranks but stutters, revs high but won't accelerate

asked by on

This is not a common complaint and I would speculate the engine has a major vacuum leak or a mass air tube leak between the throttle body and the sensor.

I can only recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, run a diagnostic on the high idle speed condition, which would include checking the computer and the items I mentioned.
