Question about 1994 Hyundai Sonata
Sorry to say, but you might have some serious problems. I'll list 3 vague the possibilites, best-case scenario to worst.
1. You blew a gasket, oil pan, timing cover, valve cover. Any gasket that holds engine oil in. If this blew out, you would lose oil, the light would come on (low PSI) and the motor would sieze.
2. You have a serious clog somewhere in you oiling system which caused a PSI spike, blowing a line or gasket. The clog is a problem, which comes from sludge and deposits. Oil ports, holes and lines in the engine are fairly small and not difficult to clog if the oil and filter are neglected.
3. The worst thing that could have happened is you blew your motor. Overrevving, driving to hard without letting it warm up or again, neglecting the oiling system. You may have thrown a rod through the engine block, dropped a valve, spun a bearing or lost a main seal. The main seal is the least serious, but the labor is still extensive.
In your '94, If the engine stopped on it's own (you didn't shut it off), it probably siezed. In many cases this is not repairable. Start car shopping.
