Hyundai is recalling 120,000 Tucson SUVs because their oil pans can leak, damaging the engine or starting fires. The automaker says there’s a problem with the sealant they used for the 2011-2013 model years.

Common warning signs include oil pools on the ground, knocking engine noises, the smell of oil burning on hot engine parts, a smoldering wall of flames coming out of your engine. You know, subtle stuff like that.

Hyundai plans on sending out recall notices by the end of March 2019.
