Question about 2001 Kia Rio
I had the same problem, but only when it rained. There was a crack in the ignition coil unit and the water was creating an arc. When I drove long enough to heat the engine and evaporate the water it would run fine. Strangely, though, I still had to stop and restart the engine. $150 bucks the replace the ignition coil, and now no problems (at least with that)

Check the fuel sensor. Mine did the same thing and that was the cause. The fuel sensor is located under the air intake heading to the engine right after the air filter. It is screwed into the housing that the air filter housing sits on. I has leads(wires) coming out of it. Replacing one of those is not that hard and really not that expensive (Under 100$)
