more time it died and I got worried and
came home. Popped hood and no oil at
all..never once in 3 years has it came
on. It sounds terrible..like a
helicopter..had oil changed today..an
lucas oil additive also..did not quiet it
down one bit...sounds worse and
smells burnt now..cant accelerate
normally...dipstick seems
burnt..100,000 mile warranty expired
by 2,000 miles...still owe $22,000..been
searching all night and extremley
common problem...there is a new
recall reported by several news
articles...however the recall issused in
2019 has not been  announced
properly because of the government
shutdown this year...and still has not
been announced properly and is A
continuance of a previous recall...typed
it into google even a lawsuit has
popped up...kia has a fail rate...100,000
miles if youre lucky....today is going to
be a long day of arguing with kia

we are dealing with the same problem. Ours uses about a quart every 500 miles. Done all regular maintenance. The engine sucks. Had it tested during the fire recall they told me it looks good. I told them I can drive it about 4000 miles and blow it up if they like because there will be no more oil in the car. Sounds like a good engine to me , dingbats
