2004 Kia sorrento - Drive down road and then dies while idling at light. Car cranks and then dies within seconds. When it finally cranks and we stop it dies if we do not stay on the gas. Seems like its idling real rough. Not sure what to do.

It may be a vacuum leak. Could be a failed fuel pump. Could be any number of other items. You need some one to help you in a shop to determine the failure. Not enough info for us to give an educated guess.
