Sounds like the engine is used up, typical for a Kia, your stuck with an expense no matter what you do, new engine, remanufactured, or even a warrantied used engine. Of course you could sell it as where is, you might get a little more than scrap price. Best be looking for another vehicle, if your going with used, stay away from Kia, Mitsubushi, in the Asian line. Honda, Toyota have good track records followed by Mazda piston engine vehicles. Good luck.

If it were my car I would install a good used engine and sell it.
