This is an item you can replace with simple tools and a few minutes of your time...
I don't know if you have a 4 cylinder or a V6 but a search on ebay brings one up for under $25...

Post what engine you have and we'll get you a picture of where it is and what you need to replace it yourself...

Have you checked the level of the oil in your car? When was it last changed (with filter).. KIAs have problems with many NON OEM filters that will trigger the oil pressure light... I use only KIA/Hyundai or WIX brand filters...
