You need to get the computer scanned. This can be done at Auto Zone or similar parts stores free of charge. More than likely you will just need new spark plugs and/or plug wires but I cannot be certain without the engine code.
Hope this helps, remember to rate this answer.

SOURCE: Ruff idle,no power

it sounds like this problems is related to the ETM, or electronic throttle module. if software download was already performed, next step is to clean the throttle body bore. ultimately, the module may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Loss of power with Check engine and VSC light on

There are several possible causes for the Check-Engine light coming on. First, it could be your oxygen sensors, PCV valve, dirty or clogged fuel filter or something as simple as a bad spark plug or loose spark plug wire. Also, contaminated fuel can also cause your loss of power and the subsequent light coming on.

You would need to pull out the camshaft sensor. Check its resitance with an ohmeter.

2003 Kia Spectra acceleration does not work when I step on the gas I have to allow my speed to slowly build up to reach a top speed of 45 mph and if when going up hill or trying stepping on the accelerator...

If the check engine light is on then pull the code.

Use a bottle of yellow HEET dry gas to remove moisture in fuel.

Remove air filter and remove any debris from bottom of air filter box.

With a helper inside the care,check for smooth accelerator operation. The throttle unit can get moisture inside the unit.

When step on gas it has slow acceleration, no horse power, engine dies.

Is your check engine light on?

It sounds like it could be you TPS (throttle position sensor)

If it's not getting the right signal when you step on the gas pedal, it won't let the computer know what position it's in, when the throttle is open it will let in to much air, but not give it enough fuel for that amout of air.....

Perfect Idle, no Codes, but stepping on gas causes hesitation

i would try cleaning mass air sensor, its mounted in air duct between air filter and throttle body, they sell the cleaner at auto parts stores, also as stated bofore make sure the intake pipe clamps are tight and it's not cracked, if that doen't fix it i would investigate a fuel pressure problem either a weak pump or problem with regulator
