Question about 2005 Kia Sephia
While it is possible technically to build an engine that did not have bearings, the necessary machine work and metallurgy would make that so expensive that your engine would need to be about ten times more expensive to manufacture. Even if it was manufactured that way, engine life would be considerably shortened.
As there are hundreds of reasons not to produce an engine without bearings, and none on the benefit side, and, since I've opened up thousands of engines made by pretty much every manufacturer except kia, and all use bearings of one kind or another, I doubt if what you were told is even remotely true. If you have a slight knock, it can be caused by a rod bearing or a bad wrist-pin. a good tech can usually tell the difference by listening to it. Once identified, you can then plan how to go about correcting it.
