    I tried starting it again. It seems to be better. It's not running as rough, but still has a little shiver to it.

If no "check engine" or "wrench symbol" shows on the dash, the problem may be with bad gas.

If you do have a light displayed on the dash, Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys will scan the car for free. They can give you the defect number and sell parts to you if you can fix it yourself. If you need someone to fix it, at least when you call, you can price the repair by name.

Let the car idle and warm up before accelerating. See if it smooths out or makes noises. The noises would indicate problems that should not be driven.

I hope my solution is helpful.

you may of blown a fuse- this can happen if when you jumped it you had the wires backwards - it causes a voltage spike and can blow fuses

Check your spark plug wires in the day check for tight connections and no damage at night (very dark) open hood and watch for arc over coming off the spark plug wires.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die randomly


I was on vacation in S.C. and engine would die every 20 mins. or so, I took it too dealer and they could find nothing wrong except a bad plug wire periodically wouldn't fire. I said replace it and 3 years later problem is still fixed. Must have caused a glitch with computer.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die while driving


You need to run an engine control module scan for fault codes Known as an OBD2 fault code test.. Autozone and others do this for free. If no fault show then hook up a test fuel gage the next time it stalls and see if maybe the fuel pump is failing.

No RPM Enigne runs rough


Theres a few sensors that could be the issue, it would probably be cheaper to pay a mechanic to scan and watch which sensor fails when the engine dies instead of changing random parts. There might be freeze frame data in the history that could pin point which sensor failed. Like if the crank sensor fails the engine will shut off because the cpu doesn't know where the engines timing is anymore.
