This is quite common for Kia vehicles. A fault in the EVAP system. Get a scan done to check for trouble codes and let me know if any found.

EVAP system leads from front to rear with a few component and if there are any trouble codes, it would help to pin point the problem.

Without any trouble codes, you would have to check the complete system which includes hoses and solenoids.

Well all I know is they had to clean the entire system of fuel plugging vacuum lines which caused it to hesitate
