Hi on this car the fuel filter is in the fuel pump so the pump as a whole will be replaced. To get to it you will have to remove the rear seat bottom cushion. There are 2 12m bolts inbetween the top cushion and the bottom. remove them and then on the front of the bottom cushion there will be 2 plastic clips pull up on them and the cushion will pop up and you will see the acc panel for the pump.

there are two pins one on each side that lock, you have to stick a small screw driver under each one to open them from the filter side. It is easier to remove the filter from the bracket

Even though the fuel filter and pump are easy to replace, I would start with the IAC sensor first. It is easier to get to and is cheaper than the other two if you can find one at a wrecking yard (should be around $20). This sensor is the Idle Air Control sensor, and the computer decides how much throttle to give at idle from the readings of the sensor. If it is bad your car will idle poorly or not at all.
You can verify this two simple ways:
1. Disconnect the sensor completely and see if anything changes. If you get the same issue, then it's probably the sensor. If different then it could be fuel delivery.
2. With it all hooked up; try throttling the engine yourself at 1000-1200 rpm and see if it is smooth. If it is then it is probably the sensor. If not then could be the fuel delivery.
The sensor is under the silver and black, plastic KIA cover over the engine (4 small nuts to remove), and is center above the engine on the front side of the intake pipe.
The part looks like this:
If it seems to still be fuel delivery, the filter is (facing the engine from the front of the car) down to the left and toward the back attached to the fender well (Just to the right of and below the battery)
