Doesn't sound like a coil pack fault i'd say either a bad earth or a cam/crankshaft sensor. have them both checked out by an auto electrician. Or you could be sleeping in your garage for months trying to sort the problem.

You need a spark, Fuel, and air to make it run. if it will start period i would check to see if your getting spark (Sparkplugs) Or if you are getting fuel. May be a bad coil of plug or a dirty fuel filter.

It sounds to me like you have replaced everything except the most likely cause of your idle control problem...The Idle Air control. (IAC) (or Idle Speed Control Valve) It is located onthe throttle body and looks like the picture below.

I have an 03 kia rio and am having power issues. The check engine light is on and the car simply fails to go when the gas is depressed. It acts like its starving for fuel and sounds like its only running...

I have the same issue with mine and found that if you gap the plugs to .026 -.028 instead of the factory settings of about .042 that the issue is 95% gone. I had changed the coil, plugs and wires before I found this remedy. The issues resurfaces now and then but not nearly as bad. Reset the ecm by pulling the 10 amp fuse in the under hood panel and it'll run better also. Stick with regular plugs, not platinum or others.
