Rod is correct...any engine needs fire, fuel, air, and compression..I always start with fire, if you have it then move on to fuel...95% of the time the problem will lay in those two. Once you figure out what it isn't getting, then work on why. Newer cars have a lot of computorized stuff that require specialized equipment and knowledge.

If it hasn’t had a tune up lately then I’d suggest starting there, maybe the smoke os carbon built up on the spark plugs or in your intake/exhaust. I’d change the spark plugs and then drive it a bit, don’t be afraid to run it a little hard. There’s no issue with running the hell out of a vehicle from time to time, the dealership I worked at last made sure to suggest that to all customers, not that they’re any authority, but I know from personal experience it won’t hurt anything as long as your motor is mechanically sound.

Second option, if it has smoke when it starts up or when you get down on the accelerator a bit harder than normal then it may be the inevitable wear associated with high mileage from old valve seals or worn piston rings, etc. That’s nothing to worry about either, if it “burns” oil, meaning it must be added between changes then that may be the issue. If so, just keep it checked and full of oil and it’ll go on for many years, I’ve had vehicles that were so reliable and just ideal, but they needed a quart of oil on a regular basis, or maybe a half a quart, whatever the case may be it’s all good as long as you keep oil in it! See the message below please and best of luck friend!

before I move on to replacing expensive items. ???? If that's all you know how to do ,your best bet would be to take it to qualified repair shop. Viewing wiring diagrams an testing the electrical circuits with a DVOM - digital volt ohmmeter is the correct way to diagnose , not guessing . This starter system is controlled by the engine computer , if anti-theft system has a problem , or park neutral safety switch is the PCM/ECM won't energize the start relay .

Your can replace parts all day long an not fix this .

When you say it will now rev up, is it in drive or neutral or park? If it is driving down the road then you may have a fuel problem. You will need to run a fuel pressure test. May be a bad pump or filter. If you are in P or N there is a rev limiter that will not allow the engine to rev too high to prevent engine damage.

The TPS adjustment requires a "kia global diagnostic software", which only kia dealers have. Best to take it in and have them make the adjustment.
