I got into my Kia and drove off. About a few miles I noticed some slight ticking then some sluggish behavior. I then stopped and checked the oil which was a quart low and added. I continued to drive then heard a deeper low end knocked then my oil light came on along with engine light. Got P0026 and P0018 codes. Drove a little bit then it died on me. Try to start again but only tunrns over and backfires.

From your description it sounds like something broke in timing chain area. The codes that you are giving kind of relate to that. Have this checked out and if this is an interference engine it may have bent valves as well. See pic for items that may have broken.
