2004 kia amanti cylinder 3 flooded and smoking

Hi my 2004 amanti started to run rough recently, there was a heavy smell of gas and it is smoking. Cylider 3 is getting flooded causing the misfire. There is a code for cylinder 3 misfire and a code on the throttle. I changed the spark plugs and the spark plug wires and it is still bad. Coil are also in good shape. Please let me know if anyone knows the solution to this problem

Well from your own description, #3 cylinder flooding and smell of gas. I would say a stuck open fuel injector and will probably need to be replaced.

2004 Throttle code? Do you own the code reader, or did you get it from a shop or parts store?
The throttle body is a Mitsubishi, and uses roller bearings that need oil. Remove the throttle body, remove the motor from the butterfly, clean the axle shaft bearings, spray white lube or drip motor oil in them, check to see that they roll very easily, then put it back together and check the resistance to finger pressure on the butterfly valve. If the butterfly valve was hard to move before you removed it and easy to move after you cleaned and oiled it, that code will not return.
Cylinder 3 is a bit more difficult. I like what MIA KIA wrote. You may want to take a compression test after you remove the spark plug, and then remove the injector. I think a trip to the boneyard may be a prerequisite first, to see if you can get the fuel rail system off of an identical 3.5 ENGINE and a throttle body. Having two of these cars makes it easier to work on one and use parts from the other.
