If u took it in for the recall, it should've gotten a software update that kills the engine when it detects a knock to prevent bearing rods from freezing. If you're lucky it might still work after you add engine oil. Kia and Hyundai engines are very sensitive to low engine oil. Try to rotate engine by hand, if it turns, do and oil/filter change and see if will work. Did you get a check engine code?
