Is this a universal part, i've spent the last two days looking for the part and all the auto stores say they cant get it and the dealership want to sell the whole throttle body for $220 vs the $35 on that website. However the one on the website is slightly different i.e. some of the angles around the edges are more triangle shaped?

You replace sparkplugs,plug wire,tps,map,cap and rotor.Thats good,If the vehicle runs and you come to a stop and it stalls,That is the IAC (Idle air control) you say it ran fine for a week now its acting up, Service the IAC or get it replaced.
No, actually I would find a different Mechanic. 2000 and newer the TPS, Throttle Position Sensor, is pretty much standard to control idle RPM. Even in Fuel injection, it is just located on an Air control valve instead of a Carburetor.
if check engine light is on. scan for problem code. it could be a bad throttle position sensor, also clean throttle body, it may need cleaning because it will get a lot of gunk in it as time goes on. clean around throttle plate good to remove the gum and varnish from around plate. you can buy throttle body cleaner at most auto-parts stores. and make sure airfilter is clean. good-day !
3 possible problems your mass are flow meter/senso could be going bad but not bad enough to register a fault, the same for your idle air valve and also your throttle position sensor. all 3 of these are on your throttle body .
with the engine running tap the side of the mass air flow with the back of a screw driver, if the engine sputers mass air flow needs replaced.you can try cleaning it with some mass air flow cleaner if you cant find that at your auto parts store get some electrical parts wash. your idle air valve needs to be cleaned or replaced there hard to get off. your throttle position sensor , you need to know the setting ,if the auto parts store cant give you aprint out of instuctions best to let a kia dealership do it and pay out the ****.
Check all your fuses, check for 12volts at the coil with the key on.Test the asd relay and get yourself a chilton manual and carefully go over the wiring diagram so you have some idea where to look. Stop buying parts and start reading till you have a good understanding of how the system is connected. Also test the cam position sensor. The price of the manual and a digital multi-meter is less $ than what you already spent! You can not agree with my answer if you wish but though I've been doing this a really long time, without testing, it's nearly impossible to fix anything!!
This is most likely the throttle position sensor. It sounds odd I know, but the throttle position sensor helps tell the transmission when to shift. This same thing happened to my Jeep. The sensor is located on the intake manifold on the engine and costs around 45 bucks.
To the guy who spent 2300 dollars getting a transmission rebuilt: They saw you coming and you got totally screwed over. I can get a cherokee transmission rebuilt any day of the week in the range of 800 to 1000 dollars. WOW check out your shops and mechanics a little better before you jump into a rip off.
I would check out the Mass Air Flow sensor and the Throttle Position Sensor.
The Throttle Position Sensor tells the computer what position your have on the throttle while your are pushing on the gas pedal.
The Mass Air Flow sensor tell the computer how much air is going into the engine at different RPMs.
A repair manual will show you how to check the sensors if they are bad. Auto-parts store will carry these books. It's about $20.
ok dizzydean, u need to have the engine codes read. Most parts stores will do this for free, and will explain what could be wrong. They will plug a scan tool into a plug under your dash to read codes stored in the cars computer.
