The Heavy sings How You Like Me Now from the Kia commercial
I'm not familiar with a Kia, but the first thing that I would suspect on a 12 year old car would be a blocked catalytic converter. Also, check that the exhaust system isn't crushed or collapsed anywhere restricting the exhaust flow.
super heated by exhaust, your up stream O2 sensor is dead, your catalytic converter is plugged. This is serious and needs immediate attention for risk of fire to auto and severe damage to catalytic converter. If a rich condition causes raw fuel or vapor to reach the converter fire can occur. Get a...

Assuming that is shuts off dead like you turned the key: Replacing the TPS and any coils was silly. If it wasn't a bad module expect a bad crank sensor or cam sensor or ignition switch or PCM.

As with any vehicle with spark plugs, the plugs are usually the weakest link. Most people will do it every year unless it is running platinum or iridium tipped plugs. Those usually last longer. I believe the maintenance listing is for 12 months or 12k miles.
