Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Hard starting could be caused by a number of faults such as weak battery corroded/loose battery terminals, fuel delivery issues and others which may include as you posted the MAF sensor. In my country however, most Kias have a peculiarity. They like to be well warmed up (even if it is hot here). Hard starting specially after short hops/trips is actually the ECU/ECM/Control Module or the car's computer getting mixed sensory inputs. The corrective action is to warm up the car fully before using. In some instances, it may also be required to reset the computer by removing the negative battery terminal for a few minutes. Pls bear in mind that some alarms are triggered this way and/or some car stereos would require a security code if the battery is removed.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If wiggling the wires cured the code, then one of the wires is broken inside the insulation. Pull on each wire one at a time. look for the colored insulation to stretch, this will be the broken wire. For the other car that wont rev up, this is a common when the catalytic concverter is plugged up. This will also cause MAF codes, and in turn, TRAC OFF light.

Very easy for the Mass Air Flow Sensor....it is in the duct between the throttle body and the air filter box. Just unclamp the tube and remove the old and replace with the new.
On your pack....I need the engine size.

I had a similar problem that stalling when slowing down to stop and removing the foot from accelerator pedal. This had been ongoing for almost 6 months. I have taken it to the big service companies who spent hours changing lambda sensors etc....After doing a bit of investiagtion seen that other owners of same car had the throttle valve cleaned (apparently this is required every 30K). I took it to our local one man garage. He reported that he fiddled around with throttle valve using solvent cleaner and general poke around for approx 10 minutes. Since then the car has worked perfectly and has not stalled since. RECOMMEND - MUST CHECK THROTTLE VALVE CLEANED.
