It starts and runs a very few minutes and dies. When you turn it off it will run for another minute and die again. This process repeats as many times as you want to turn it off and restart it.

It can be a fuel problem or a distribution problem.

    Check spark plugs, if one of them is burnt or much dirtier then the others, then the car is misfiring on one or more cylinders, replace the spark plugs, if this does not help check distributor and electronic distribution.
    Check air filter, and eventually replace it if it is dirty, check that air intake is not obstructed.
    Regarding fuel problems, check and eventually replace fuel filter. Check if fuel pump is running, check if it is not noisy and if there is fuel pressure.
    If the above did not help you in solving the problem, then the car computer must be connected to a code reader. the computer returns error code that allow to fix problems on electronic distribution and electronic injection. In this case I suggest going to a mechanic and having car computer units scanned, the scan on its own it is not an expensive work, then you can decide if to proceed in fixing the car.

My 03 kia sedona starts up and will idle for 30 or 40 minutes and die out ad start up again and run a few more minutes nd die again then not start for a few hours

Change the fuel filter and see it that helps. It sounds like a fuel supply problem, and the filter is the least expensive most likely place to start.

2001 Kia Rio with brand new battery and alternator will start sometimes or with a jump but then shuts off. Jump it and it may run for a few minutes and quit again or work for days then just quit. ...

The symptoms you describe sound familiar. Something is killing your new battery and the problem may indicate a need for consulting a competent Kia dealer. The erratic instrumentation is due to low voltage on the bus that feeds it. That, along with the clicking noise, are signs of a dying battery. The dealer may have a factory service bulletin (FSB) that fixes this.
