It could be a number of things such as a bad O2 sensor, Throttle Position Sensor, Idle Speed Control valve, or stuck open Exhuast Gas Recirculation vlave, so it's best to take it to a parts store that will connect a code reader and identify the error code stored in the ECU, which hopefully will clearly identify the problem.

Most parts shops will do the code reading free.

For service info register (free) with KiaTechInfo and click on 'Shop' on the left, and for elect schematics click on 'ETM'.

Quality and not quantity counts.
