You lost oil pressure, either due to oil loss or oil pump failure. When this happens the crankshaft bearings lose lubrication, heat up, expand, and freeze, or seize the engine. This is called lockup. The Kia folks lied to you about the safety of driving in this condition, or they didn't understand your description of it. Loud knocking inside the engine calls for immediate shutdown to avoid catastrophic damage. You are now looking at at least and engine rebuild, if not a full replacement.
SOUND'S LIKE YOU COULD HAVE A BAD ROD OR CRANK OR LIFTER.TRY THIS CHECK YOUR WATER AND OIL NOW START THE ENGINE IF IT IS A FAST KNOCKING HOLD YOUR FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND PUT THE CARE IN GEAR IF IT QUEITS YOU HAVE BAD ROD SERIOUS MOTOR REPAIR INTERNAL.DO THE SAME THING AGAIN AND IF IT IS MORE A THUMPING NOISE AND A SLOW DEEP KNOCK THEN WITH THE ENGINE IDLEING PUT IT IN GEAR HOLD THE BRAKE GIVE IT A LITTLE GAS AND IF THE MOTOR KNOCK'S GET'S QUEIT IT'S POSSIBLY THE CRANKSHAFT ANOTHER INTERNAL PROBLEM MOTOR OVERHAUL IF IT'S A FAST RATTLING IT'S PROBABLY A LIFTER STUCK OR BLEED DOWN DIRTY OIL OR A WEAK OIL PUMP ALL ARE BAD NEWS SORRY.GOOD LUCK
to much oil is bad it will push the seals out and lock up your motor drain your oil all of it and put no more than 5 qts back in your battery must have ben working overtime yes put in a new battery (if) your old one wont hold a charge
no oil on dipstick is a very BAD THING make sure you have oil in the motor before you do anything else!!! or else it can cost you a motor if you did your own oil change,,, did you put oilpan plug back in? did you tighten the oil filter? did you put 5qts oil back into motor? there SHOULD BE A READING ON THE DIPSTICK. new oil looks almost transparent on the dipstick. try rubbing your finger on the dipstick to check for oil presence. look real close at the dipstick before you start your motor!!! if you added 5qts oil it went somewhere,are you sure it went into the motor? if no oil in motor there will be loud knocking from the motor. hope this helped you save your motor!!!!!
Why did the engine get hot? Coolant loss? Was the oil level too low before more was added? If it was low, how many quarts should have been added? I believe you have serious engine problems. Too much oil is as bad as too little. What happens when it is overfilled, is the oil 'foams', causing a lack of lubrication of internal components. Oil in a foamy state will not lubricate properly. I believe what you hear is a crankshaft or rod bearing that is now damaged. If I'm correct, you need to replace the engine. Sorry for the bad news.
Before you start to pull the crank out, check your oil pressure via an independent gage. Then if you have around 25-30 psi gage, drain some oil out. Put a quart of Marvel Mystery Oil in and top off . Change oil filter. Drive the truck for a few miles. Change the oil and filter. This should start to break away the sludge that is built up.
You may need to do this up to 10 times before you can go 3000 miles on an oil change.
Now if the oil pressure is extremely low, yes you can change the crank in chassis. I have done it in a pinch before. It is much easier to pull the engine and put a crank in. If the crank is bad, you also have a rod that is bad. You also need to clean all the parts or emminent failure will occur.
I would also change the knock sensors on your truck as well. Hope this helps. Rate me high.
