You should take your car to the local Kia dealership and have them check it for recalls. There was a recall for the ORVR valve and also a evap line recall on those cars. I have done many of the ORVR valves and just last week did one of the evap line recalls. The rough idle and smoke needs to be addressed by someone who can actually see whats going on. If you want you can PM me with the vin number and I will be glad to check it out for you on Monday and PM you back to let you know what recalls apply.
Hope this is helful to ya,
