Check for DTCs, likely a camshaft position sensor or crankshaft position sensor is intermittently failing.

The crank sensor is located on the front of the engine down by the crankshaft...It looks like the ones used in the 2.4L 4 cylinder engines used by KIA...
It looks like this ...
New Crankshaft Crank Position Sensor for 03 06 Kia Sorento 39310 39800 | eBay

They are known troublemakers causing very intermittent no start/dying/crank only problems...
