2015 Hyundai Sonata SE 4 Cyl 2.40L
Oil cap sucked in to engine, giant cloud of smoke, engine, battery and oil light on. Anyone hear of this before?
While driving on the freeway, I ran over an unavoidable pallet in the middle of the road. No lights came on and my tires were fine. I got to my destination and drove my vehicle home 5 hours later. On the freeway again, I noticed that my car was "lagging" when accelerating (felt like it was shifting down and jumping to the next speed). Then a few minutes later there was a loud pop and a GIANT cloud of smoke behind me. My car started shaking (not terribly) and engine was making some noise but did not lose power. That's when my battery, oil and engine light came on.
Sounds like there was some external damage to the engine by the impact of the pallet. Check the engine - from bottom to top - for impact damage.
