What you have for codes is an OBDII codes where KIA does not supply a detailed diagnose
i suggest a scanner if possible
codes you have its all indicate to a wiring issue
check connector plug and pins if pushed out
The SAE definitions are as follows:
P0342: Camshaft position sensor "A" circuit low, bank 1 or single sensor

PO343. Camshaft position sensor A, bank 1 - high input

DTC P0102, MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR LOW/HIGH

Probable cause. Wiring short to positive
