Is it just when it's running that it has this problem? I had a problem starting the car recently (ran fine until you tried starting it again later) that was traced back to the fuel pump... could be something maybe not letting enough fuel pressure get to the intake, which through engine suction could still make it to the cylinders while the throttle is open.

Don't know a whole lot about kias yet, but that could be a start.
