Question about 2001 Kia Sephia
The cars computer may need to relearn the idle. When the battery has been disconnected for a while it wipes the memory, so the next time you start it the car goes through a re-learn process. It's free to try, so give it a shot. Disconnect the battery for an hour or two (maybe overnight if you can) then connect it back after it has been sitting. Make sure lights, a/c, radio, all accessories are off and start the car. Let it sit and idle for a while (maybe 10 minutes) until it warms up and the idle drops to normal. Then you should be good as far as the re-lean process goes.
If that doesn't help, then you may have a wiring issue from the wreck. Assuming nothing was done to the engine.
