Not sure what's wrong. Will my warranty cover this?

Asked by Oct 12, 2016 at 01:20 AM about the 2015 Hyundai Elantra SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The other day I stopped at the stop sign down the street and my car
made a weird noise and stopped. I turned the car off/on and drove
less than a fourth of a mile and noticed the oil light came on. I've never seen
this light come one in a car before so I immediately slowed down and Googled
what it meant. I saw that you should only go as far as absolutely necessary so
that you don't cause damage to the engine. I turned around and drove
approximately half a mile back home. My dad told me my oil pressure was low
so I should add more oil and probably get an oil change. I did that (added
more oil) and the light was still on and the dipstick was completely dry after
adding about 2 qts. He came out and looked under
the hood, told me to turn the car on and immediately waved to shut it off. He
added more oil and did the same thing again. He said when I turned the car on
oil was squirting from somewhere. Also, the engine was making a sort of
grinding noise. Not super loud but definitely noticeable. He called his
mechanic and he said there's probably a hole somewhere???? I called a
random Hyundai dealership and they said I would most likely be covered under
warranty.

Can someone tell me what the issue might be? Mileage apprx 42,000 miles
and the only "issue" I've ever had was wobbling from messed up
tires. The car is in good condition though it was in an accident probably a year
ago. No lights have ever come on in the car, not even the tire pressure lights.
I'm nervous that the warranty won't cover it: I've been reading a shit load of
reviews, most of which are negative. Honestly, I haven't been the best with
changing my oil but my dad and the mechanic said this has 0 to do with
changing the oil so it shouldn't make a difference. I appreciate the help! TIA!

Have you ever do maintenance for your car? I think you may do somethings... My car has some same problems: Fuel consumption increase, Short of power, Fast acceleration not free, Start not smooth, especially in cold start, Excessive exhaust emission, Noise increase, The engine oil turns black, Someone told me I need do engine carbon cleaning, (my car run over 30000 kilometers) I do, it solve some problems.( good for fuel consumption, power and emissions)

Bring that car in and let the dealer look at to determine if the repair is under warranty.sounds like a seal is no good.

Hard to guess what the exact problem is sitting here looking at the monitor. If could be that the oil filter is loose or an extra gasket was left during the last oil change causing a massive oil leak. In any case an engine making odd noises after being run low on oil is not good. Get it towed to the dealership for diagnosis.
