Depending On the engine:
1.6l: mb6bf-20-660
1.8l: mbp2y-20-660

These are the Kia part numbers. The 1.6l is $767.00. I'm not sure about the 1.8l. They usually just need to be cleaned. You will need a new gasket if you take it apart.

It's located on the side of the intake plenum. Follow the large rubber hose to an aluminum casing, it's mounted there.
It has two solenoids (motors)that open and close a "butterfly" (flap) to control the Idle speed. With mileage and ingested dirt/deposits it becomes sticky. You usually can clean it with choke cleaner and it will run normally again. Be careful not to get cleaner on MAP/MAF sensor inside rubber hose.
The "bone" yard will cost you much less than at the dealer and they usually give a warranty on used parts.
