Random misfires could be gas related- low fuel pressure, vacuum leaks or air leaks upsetting the air/fuel mixture ratio, clogged air filter or fuel filter. Could be ignition related- worn spark plugs, possibly. Or could be an internal mechanical problem-possible valve train malfunction.
Start with a fuel pressure test. check vacuum hoses for leaks, check intake manifold and throttle body assembly for leaks. If you have an exhaust leak at or near the engine, can cause misfires. Air going into the engine is metered by the mass air flow sensor in the big air boot on the throttle body. If extra air gets into the engine through a vacuum leak or a loose hose, the engine computer won't know it, so the air/fuel mixture will be too lean, resulting in misfiring. Several things to check-good luck.

Will a vw bmw airbag code reader work on a 2007 kia rio lx

If it is an airbag tester dedicated to the Bosch and/or Siemens (or whatever) SRS systems fitted to those marques it is unlikely to work with vehicles not using those systems - but go ahead and try it. You have two chances and trying and failing won't cause any harm...

then take the codes -take down your vin number - call the dealer and ask
1- about any recalls on the vehicle - they are free if there are any and can save you thousands
