    If the engine hesitates it is likely to be ignition related but tests would need to be done to confirm if it is a bad spark plug, bad ignition coil or even just bad connections at the coil. Is the check engine light on if so trouble codes are stored in the computer of your car but a scan tool will be needed to retrieve the codes stored. Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners. www.kiatechinfo.com
