2007 Kia Rio LX shut off while driving and won't start Sign In

I have a 2007 Kia Rio LX. The car was running fine and then it randomly shut off while I was driving. The battery light cut on right before it shut off. When I try to start it back up it cranks and turns over but just doesn't start. I also smelled gas and there was smoke coming from the air filter. When I popped the casing that was covering the air filter smoke came out. I tried spraying the intake with starting fluid and that didn't do anything either. Can anyone help me to figure out what is going on?

Don't get near this with starting fluid again for now!
Hey - Battery light just means it stalled in this case but the smell of gas and smoke in air cleaner is enough to leave this alone till you have a better clue of what's going on.


Maintenance items all up to date? No missing timing belts intervals and things? Can't know with just this but smoke, smell of fuel whatever is broken now (totally unknown) that is dangerous of course.


Get help if only to find out what exactly has happened and what might be required to fix it,

Have the engine computer scanned to see if any trouble codes are stored. Write down the numbers and post them in here.
