Sound,s like you are loosing fuel,check fuel filter,and your fuel pump,this can be done by checking the fuel pressure.

No it's not the fuel. I didn't explain well if enough, the battery died and when I jumped it all the idiot lights came on, and then it had no acceleration you'd hit the pedal and it would do nothing but kept running. Then it just died. So I went thru all electronics and all was good. Like fuses and what not so I reset the system them everything worked again. No idiot lights on acceleration worked now it's doing it again. Could be alternator?

I didn't have this problem on this car, however I did on another. .Turned out to be a collapsed gas filter..may want to check into it.

I have the same car and model kia Borrego 2009 ex v8 sometimes car can't accelerate but when i remove my foot from the pedal and press it again it accelerated for a while then go back to die symptoms now i have temporary solution but i want to solve it permanently Sorry for my bad English
