Question about Cars & Trucks
I would start the IAC.
Idle air control valve.
Then take the rubber intake off and clean with a lint free rag sprayed with carb/choke cleaner, the intake and butterfly.
I'm taking you referring to having to hold your foot you mean it starts but dies unless you hold the throttle until it warms up?

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.

i had a similar problem with my 626,what sorted it for me was to clean the crankcase breather tube on top of the rocker cover.The little valve inside this seems to stick but spraying some air intake cleaner (comes in an aerosol can) frees it out and allows the engine to breath better and so tick over evenly.

Change the idle air control valve.That seems to be your problem.The only other thing it may be is your air temp switch located on the air intake.

I don't have a solution to the problem, but Mazda should. I have replaced 3 different ignition coils in the last 3 months. I am spending more on repairs than I was in a car payment. Mazda has been no help at all!
