Check for codes, check fuel pressure, check injector function, check O2 sensor readings, check for vacuum leaks, check MAP sensor readings. just some places to start.

2004 kia sorenta, cranks fine but after a few miles act as if running out of gas. Turn it of and recrank and it will run for a short minute then does again

Have fuel filter changed if it has one. If not it get a shop to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail on engine. If it is low your fuel pump is going bad.

Kia sportage cranks but seldom starts??

Have you checked the fuel pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump ? The computer grounds the relay when the computer "sees" oil pressure or engine RPM.

2000 kia sephia cranks but engine wont run

The fuel pump may have died. Can you hear it turn on briefly, by turning the key to "on"? You may have to stand by the gas tank while someone turns the key to on. It should turn on for about 2 seconds and then stop, after pressurizing the fuel system. If you don't hear it, then check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is good, and the pump won't run, one needs to check that the fuel pump wire at the tank connector has battery voltage on it when the engine is cranking-then, you can assume the pump needs replacing.
If the pump is working and you have gas up to the engine, you would next check the ignition system. Start that by checking for spark on one of the spark plug wires.

Cranks too long to start hot,and smell fuel when it does,

Definately overfueling. Don't apply any gas pedal when starting. lightly tap and crank. If still does it, fuel pressure regulator malfunction- good luck It should fire up without give it fuel. not like the good ole cars.
