KIA recall for engine debris?

I don't have my VIN handy to check the recall link at the bottom, but sounds like they may be doing something about the manufacturing debris.


Hyundai, Kia recall 1.2M cars for possible engine failure - Story | KSAZ


DETROIT (AP) - Hyundai and Kia are recalling nearly 1.2 million cars and SUVs because the engines can fail and stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall covers the Korean automakers' most popular models including 2013 and 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport SUVs and Sonata midsize cars. Also covered are Kia Optima midsize cars from 2011 through 2014, Kia Sportage SUVs from 2011 through 2013 and Kia Sorento SUVs from 2012 through 2014.

The companies say that debris left from manufacturing can restrict oil flow to connecting rod bearings. That can increase temperatures and cause the bearings to wear and fail.

Hyundai and Kia will notify owners and dealers will inspect the engines. They'll replace the block if needed at no cost. The recall is scheduled to start on May 19.

Recall

I just saw there was a recall today. I have entered my VIN but it says no recall. I have been on this forum before talking about how my Sportage sounds like a diesel when it runs. My mechanic says that's just what foreign cars sound like. My gut says otherwise. I even have uploaded a video of the knocking. But everyone just says it's the sound of the lifters. The recall notice said the recall would not begin till May 19th. So is that why when I enter my VIN it says no recalls? And is anyone else's sound like a diesel?

when a recall is announced on the news it can be sometime before all the VIN numbers would get input to provide the details, its not always instantaneous. You will get an official letter from KMA (in the US) or KIA Canada stating your vehicles is under the recall order.

I don't know for sure, but I doubt it as the new generation Rondo (from 2014) is the same 2.0L engine that is used in the Soul, which is not involved in this recall. The recall is on a Theta series engine, the Soul/Rondo use the Nu series engine.

Injectors are really loud on these GDI motors, wonder if that's what you hear? At any rate, that sort of noise isn't likely to be a result of the bearing damage this recall relates to. If yours has a problem I think it's something different.

if you read the details of the recall it has nothing to do with your Sportage as you have a 2.4L engine its only the 2011-13 Sportage equipped with 2.0L turbo engines produced from December 30, 2010 through August 30, 2013 effecting 8,417 vehicles.

This will explain why nothing is showing up with regards your VIN number.

No where have I read it is just the turbo engines. Or even the word turbo.

they are just general news report with basic info, that's why you have to read the NHTSA Recall no (17V-224) from info submitted by KMA (their recall no SC147) to NHTSA:

https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls?nhtsaId=17V224

scroll down to "3 associated documents" and then download the pdf "defect Notice 573 Report" and it will give you are the specific detail recall info for the Optima, Sorento and Sportage that are involved. For the Sportage it clearly states:

Sportage 2011-2013
equipped with the 2.0L turbo GDI engines produced from Dec 30, 2010 through Aug 30, 2013 (8,417 vehicles)

It's also the 2.0L turbo that is involved with the Optima, the 2.4L only effects the Optima and Sorento.
