Also check the compression . you can rent a cylinder compression tester from autozone. you could also do a leakdown test by getting an adapter that screws into the spark plug hole and fills the cylinder with compressed air and allows you to hear where its leaking weather from the oil cap or the exhaust or intake.

I would check the sparkplug first, then the timing. Do you get any spark at all at # 3 ?

first thing to do is clean the throttle body. kia even has a tech bulletin on it and missfire codes along with all sorts of others are caused by a dirty throttle body
