Question about 2006 Kia Optima LX
It is difficult to diagnose random problems and it is possible that the service dealer fixed the fault without knowing it. IN checking the mechanic may have pushed wire connections to make sure they were tight, moved the harness to get to the ECM and in doing so fixed the fault. fault codes only read sensors that are out of parameters set by the CPU in the ECM and there are a multitude of other faults that are not recorded

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 )

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, please remove the positive battery connector. Let it sit for at least 30mins. then reconnect it. Start the car and observe how it goes. If it still fails, I suspect that there's a problem with the PCM (power train control module). If the PCM is faulty, the vehicle's current supply fails. If that's the case, the PCM must be replaced to resolve the problem.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
