This is really an update for those that wanted to know. I can finally spill the beans as I got my car back, finally. My 04 Kia Amanti blew up for the 2nd time at 22599 miles, the 1st engine was changed at 7k something which means this 1 lasted twice as long at over 15k miles. The orginal short block was changed do to a piston slap. This time it was actually doing the same thing but instead of 1 piston it was all 6 slapping away and I was blowing a nice piece of smoke out the back. My attorney said to take the engine as it was already offered to be changed for the 2nd time under warranty and how does it look when you turn down $7355 worth of free repairs. Of course if this engine goes out the gloves come off. I have cases of oil, I now get free hyundai/kia oil filters from my service center and I have a 6 pack of pre-paid Blackstone kits I will be sending off like clock work. If this engine blows up I already know from talking to them it will not get covered again and of course that would be the 3rd blow up which makes for a good court case. As we stand now Kia has over $16000 in warranty repairs on the car.
