You should have the PRESSURE TESTED from the Fuel pump, AND the Volume (amount) of gas getting to the engine... if the Fuel pump is failing intermittently, it will not show up on the OBDII computers... this will need some old fashion detective work form an experienced and HONEST mechanic...

Another thing you might want done is have the Fuel FILTER removed and checked, to see if it clogged up causing the troubles your are having.

Ignition control module could be the problem , but without doing some test's that would just be a guess . Videos on youtube on testing . Your vehicle has two crankshaft postion sensors . A - B 3X - 18X .

Complete loss of acceleration

Hi it would not be the mass flow sensor, it would be more like the cam and/or crank sensor, cam sensor gets a lot of heat on it from the engine this can warp the sensor over time and when it cools down its not in line properly. crank is in the oil all the time and gets hot over time it can overheat. if both of the sensors fail as the read engine speed the engine will cut out. then when you restart the engine light will be on but it will be in limp mode. that means that one of the sensors is reading, then when this fails again the engine will cut out.

Driving along fine then cuts out have to punch it to get to go

Those year Honda's were really bad about having problems with the distributors, which has no field serviceable parts and requires replacement of the distributor.

2001 kia optima hesitates on acceleration gets better when warm, but still does it, has 2.4 engine

3 possible problems your mass are flow meter/senso could be going bad but not bad enough to register a fault, the same for your idle air valve and also your throttle position sensor. all 3 of these are on your throttle body .
with the engine running tap the side of the mass air flow with the back of a screw driver, if the engine sputers mass air flow needs can try cleaning it with some mass air flow cleaner if you cant find that at your auto parts store get some electrical parts wash. your idle air valve needs to be cleaned or replaced there hard to get off. your throttle position sensor , you need to know the setting ,if the auto parts store cant give you aprint out of instuctions best to let a kia dealership do it and pay out the ****.
