My personnel fix for this.
Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Atuomatic trans sliping , or manual trans clutch sliping should not cause stall. sounds more like fuel or ignition problem.
I am thinking that one of the " upgraded items " ?? is not much of an upgrade.
Be carefull of kia's , The timing belts are famous for breaking and destroying the engine even before the recomended replacement mielage.. If it breaks , they don't warantee it because you never had the belt adjusted. Funny , they recomend adjustments but not part of the scheduled maintainance.
when your car starts geting close to 80,000 Km's / 50,000 miles have the belt done , but I wouldn't have it done at a dealership. It's a 1/2 hr job that a dealership might charge 2 hours for. I avoid dealerships ( for any make of car ) at all costs , unless they are doing free warantee or recall work. ( I take that back , I have had good experiances with Honda dealerships )

SOURCE: 2001 Kia Rio Stalling at speed
Had a problem with my daughters Kia Rio, it would tend to loose power and would not accelerate easily, tried everything and it turned out to be the feed cables for the fuel injection which run at the rear of the engine along the baulkhead, which were streched ..Had to rewire .
