Q: When you blow a rod do you need a new engine and what is an estimate for repair? on 2007 Kia Optima

My car had to be towed in today because of a loud knocking sound. The tow truck driver and the mechanic at the garage said the car sounds like it has blown a rod. There was no oil on the ground or under the hood.I have only had the car for 12 days as is but I did buy a warranty.My biggest fear is the warranty company may not want to pay.
