2006 Kia Sorento Question: How many ignition coils on a 2006 Kia sorento ex

Im having a missfire while driving at various speeds it feels like a sudden jerk my car did that today and then it shot down I tried to restart it but it wouldn't the check engine light came on 5 minutes later I tried again and it started without a problem I have been feeling this hesitation for about a month now but it was very sporadic today the engine died on me luckily it restarted after a few minutes I'm waiting for the dealer to open to take it in I'm guessing is an ignition coil... Not sure though -
