Have not heard that but seems like if there is no metal in your oil filter, maybe you might need a pressure switch or oil pump replaced. Replacing the engine seems servere. I would get another opinion. Good luck.
Is it true that Hyundai no longer makes the 3.3L V6 engines?Well depending upon the mileage of your Santa Fe a new oil pump probably cost $1200 and not sure if anything else is worn. Either repair or purchase another i guess. Sad your engine was not covered as the other engines had issues and were replaced. Sorry
Why isn't your car, not a warranty under 10 years or a 100K drivetrain warranty?Is it true that Hyundai no longer makes the 3.3L V6 engines?
