The code that stands out here and is also a known concern is the code P200A. Kia has released a service bulletin dealing with this code that calls for replacing the VCM Actuator and having the ECM programming updated. I have enclosed service bulletin in the link below. Have a look at it very likely applies to the shard starting problem you are having.

is this a warranty thing were i can take it to a kia dealership and they would cover the cost
Kia Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician  replied 2 months ago

Its a service bulletin and they are not usually covered by warranty, the programming will need to be done by your dealer as well. I would contact them with your vin number and see if it has not been done and if not then consider having it done.

they are saying they don't show that this needs to be done to this vehicle
Kia Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician  replied 2 months ago

It, not a matter if it needs to be done, its a matter of if it has been done and if it has not then it should be .

I’ve ordered the VCM and will get this put on and then take it to the dealership and have them update the ECM and go from there
Kia Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician  replied 2 months ago

That is sure what I would do as well.

changed the part out and P0076 is now the only code that's coming up
Kia Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician  replied 2 months ago

The code P0076 indicates you have a problem with the intake oil control valve either due to a bad valve or the circuit to it. You are going to need to do some testing.See the steps in the link below.
