I vote for Clockspring, the device that takes current from the fixed column to the wheel. Possible to replace as weekend mechanic, but remove power at battery first because of risk of airbag deployment at wrong time.

You probably will need a shop to look at and test the charging system. It could be as simple as a loose connection, or something more serious. The newer systems often have the computer, the ecu, controlling the alternator and how much it charges. So it's no longer just either the battery or the alternator being at fault. It depends on the manufacturer and how the system is designed.
I don't know about Kia, but any repair shop could find the information.

As it is worse with a full tank, it is my belief that the problem lies between the filler cap and the tank itself. There is a clip and rubber hose joining the two.

The other possibility, but usually on older cars is rust perforation on the top of the tank due to dirt and mud holding water spray and rusting small holes in the top of the tank. I had this on a Toyota.

If the check engine light came on I assume it was the check engine light, then you may feel no symptom for the code but never the less you have a failed part of other electrical issue, so if the manifold needs to be replaced to correct the check engine light and its fault code then that is what needs to be done. Remember if the CEL is on you will fail any emission inspection that is required.

Remove any items that may hinder you from looking at the drive belt and all pulleys that hooked up to it. The tensioner pulley is different from other pulleys as it has no grooves on it. It looked just like a roller with flat outer surface. It pushes on the flat side of the belt (compared to the grooved side -as other pulleys did). It is spring loaded and can be de-tensioned by moving it in the reverse direction of its push. If you are looking the TIMING BELT tensioner, then more things have to come off the engine before you could get to it.
