    Low oil pressure indication alerted while driving. Had my vehicle towed for an evaluation. Oil was full but engine failure was detected. No warning whatsoever. No knocking or stalling of engine. Car still runs but i will not drive the vehicle in fear of catastrophic consequences. Now out of a car and still owe $8500 on the loan. 82,000 miles on car. Out of warranty because i? M the second owner. Kia service center reps laughed at me. Infuriating situation. Was told my options were? Fix it or don? T? Thanks kia.

    While driving home on us highway. Speed of 55 mph posted speed limit. The engine started to knock loudly and it lost power. I almost got hit getting it to the shoulder of the highway. Oil light was on. Checked the oil and added 3 quarts. Started engine again and oil light went out and knocking was reduced. Drove another 4 miles and the engine started to knock loudly again and it lost of power again. Barley made it home by coasting downhill. Recent oil change and have maint records. No leakage, no smoke from tail pipe. Oil pressure light never came on until it was out of oil. I read many posts of others having the same exact thing as what happen to me.

    ARE 2015 Kia Soul HAD CLOSE TO 100,000 MILES ON IT AND WE STARTED TO HAVE LOW LOSS OF OIL AND A LIGHT CLICKING SOUND. WE DID NOT THINK VERY MUCH OF THIS. THERE WAS NO OIL LEAKING AND SO SIGNS OF OIL BURNING THROUGH THE EXHAUST. WE CONTINUED TO CHECK OIL AND KEEP IT FULL BUT IT SEEMED TO BE RUNNING OUT FASTER THEN IT SHOULD. ONE WEEK AFTER PUTTING OIL IN IT WE WERE ON THE INTERSTATE AND LOSS POWER AND STARTED HEARING A LOUD KNOCKING. THE ENGINE IS DEAD AND NEEDS REPLACED. OUR CAR IS NOT UNDER RECALL AND WE STILL HAVE 10,000 DOLLARS LEFT TO PAY ON THE CAR. TO REPLACE THE CAR WITH A NEW ENGINE IS AROUND 5000 DOLLARS. WE HAVE NO CLUE WHAT TODO BUT AFTER RESEARCHING WE LEARNED THAT 2015 KIA SOUL 2.0L MOTORS ARE EXPENSIVE AND IN HIGH DEMAND.
