I have to get a safety recall notice on the ECU programming but did not go to the dealer yet. From what I read in the notice, it is to detect that there is a serious mechanical problem with the engine. So yes, if that triggers, it would mean that the engine is going to be seriously destroyed soon.

Then it's best to have the car go in limp mode and get it towed for repair than having the engine explode while driving and get stuck, dead, or permanently handicapped in an accident...

Please keep us notified of what the dealer or Kia says as a remedy.
