It sounds like a broken valve spring. One of the casualties of over-revving.....
thanks for the response how would i check the engine to see if anything else is wrong. do i need a whole new engine?? :confused:

No, you don't need a whole new engine unless it is covered under warranty, but I don't think you could pass this one by them. The valve covers need to come off to be sure......
you'd be surprised what kind of horse crap some dealerships are gullable enough to eat! :shigrin

the shop i work at once warrantied bald front tires on an 08 tiburon with 1,300 miles! customer claimed it was an alignment issue...:nogrinner

the car had intake/exhaust, "tuner" rims, and was a 5-speed. c'mon, a 5-year old would have raised the BS flag on that:happyhapp

dealerships are very worried about customer satisfaction, if its under warranty have a parent bring the car in, more than likely they'll fix it and put you in a free rental.
also, if you have any burnt/shredded rubber in your wheel wells, now would be an excellent time to clean that out...

True, but sometimes it's who you know......
