Hi,this could be a bad timing belt , you can check it by removing the oil cap and have some one crancking the engine look inside,, if the valves does not move while the engine is turning you have a broken timing belt.......

My 06 KIA Rio while driving about 30 mph lost 1/2 the power and check engine light started flashing along with what sounds like a misfiring. Sounds close to stalling when I pulled car over and stopped.

Not surprising when a 4 cylinder engine looses a cylinder or two.
You would need to have someone scan the computer for trouble codes and proceed from there. The codes should tell you which cylinders lost power.

2005 Kia rio cinco just stalled out coming home from work. Won't start at all now...just cranks. Had to tow home. No check engine light came on and no code on code reader. Ideas?

Check the fuel pump and all fuel related items, and check the coil pack. Check fuse's for same.
Remember, NO air, or NO fuel, or NO spark equals NO run.

My 2005 kia sedona keeps stalling and now has started bucking while driving.. the check engine light comes on and then goes off again but the problem still remains it usually stalls at least 4 times while...

If you put your foot on the brake and your car stalls, that is a symptom of your brake booster going bad.

For it stalling on the freeway that could be a few different things, Idle Air Control Valve, the Mass air flow sensor

My kia rio stalled on the freeway today ,but just before it stalled it made a kind of tapping sound then white smoke came out of the throttle body?

First check the oil and coolant levels. You may have a broken timing belt. White smoke is usually due to coolant burning in the combustion chamber. (Head gasket)
