There is very likely a code being retained in the engine computer. If you are able go to your friendly auto parts store and ask for a complimentary scan for OBDII codes. Most Auto Parts stores will provide this service at no cost. From the scan you will be able with the advice from the parts store determine the most likely culprit for the stalling.

This is the best method for troubleshooting a 2008 vehicall.

Hope this helps?

this problem is caused by one of the tiny little pins that are used to code the lock getting stuck, u can try getting some powdered Graphite lock cylinder lube to try and free it up, if that doean't do it you will need to replace the ignition lock cylinder, don't use anthing but dry lock lube, WD 40 or any kind of oily spray will make the problem worse in the long run. Lock lube is avil from any hardware store like ACE or Home Depot

The windshield wiper circuit has an circuit breaker in it, under heavy load this breaker trips to protect the wiper motor, when the motor cools, the breaker resets automatically restoring proper wiper action.

Your going to need, the actual exhaust gas readings
from the inspection station,so you have some idea
of the fault your going after ,to correct

Your going to need to road test with a professional scanner,
& look to see of all 8 emission monitors run,if not, no reason
to go to inspection

Your going to have to look at all data & component test things,
to find a problem,so it complies to federal emission regs

If you failed to do regular Preventative Maintenance ,on different
items every year, & just go to inspection,there is a good chance
you will fail

Have to look at those I/M Monitors------ before you go-----

That is all they do at the inspection, unless it is an old veh,then
they do tailpipe exhaust gases, at two different speeds & times frames

This is probably a bad earth connection, Try checking the connection to the rear light cluster for corrosion around the wiring plug, remove it and clean the connections, also check the bulb fittings, clean and replace bulbs into the holder. This is normally where the problem is, and could be due to water getting into the rear lights, good to check for this too.

That's under warranty. Contact your local Kia dealer.

Depends on the color, if it is green then you want the old glycol. If it is orange then you want the dexicool style coolant. There is a yellow, universal coolant that is compatible with either that if there is any question I would suggest.
