are you the second owner?

Why do you feel it needs a total engine replacement?

Hey and thanks for responding! I am the second owner purchased the car last year in May with 52,000 miles on it now it has 76000 i was driving the car and everything was fine and then it started making a ticking noise the engine light flashed and the oil light flashed then it shut offf! I had to get it towed to my home and i had the starter and battery tested both came back good by car will not turn over just a click noise i had someone try and turn the camshaft to see if it moves at all and it won’t turn so they advised the motor was locked due to the oil level but i had no indication it was low it drive perfect the night before

Low oil failures are like that. As long as there's enough oil to pump through the engine, all will seem fine. Then it gets to a certain point where that doesn't happen, and it's sudden death.

Are you looking at new engines? That sounds a bit high to me. There are a bazillion or so of these engines out there.

Would someone, OP or Mod,
Please retitle this thread to,
'What other year engines fit my 2015 soul+ 2.0?'
Thank you for doing that! Some of the thread titles like "Question on my Soul" or "About my car" basically sends it into oblivion. Folks should try to think about putting KEY-Searchable words in the title, for best results. Just my humble opinion.

Another option I often suggest, if you're not in a hurry, is to ask a high school, college, or trade school that teaches auto repair if they want to rebuild your engine. Typically the owner pays for the parts and the students do the work under supervision.

Not every seized engine can be rebuilt, by the way. But many can. It depends on a lot of factors, such as the speed and load when the seize occurred and whether the sudden stop caused other damage to the internals. The problem is that sometimes you can't tell whether it's repairable until you do at least a partial teardown. If students do that and find it can't be fixed, you're not out anything for the teardown labor.

It's just something to think about.

If you replace it, I'd suggest keeping the old engine for the eventual lawsuit, seems enough people have had this in the 15 year that something will be coming.

I'm thinking the 2.0 engine from the Forte may be the same, but not certain.
