Hi everyone,

I am a fairly new Audi owner and love it. However the other day i started my car up after work and on the little screen on the dashboard the notification said "Oil Pressure." So naturally i turned the car off, popped the hood, and checked the oil level. The level was within the reasonable range so i closed the hood and started the car back up. The notification was still there. I sat for a while trying to figure out what could have happened and after the car warmed up it went away. So naturally, i started driving. Midway home the notification display came back on as well as the EPC indicator light. A few seconds later the engine shut off and wouldn't start. I took it into the mechanic today and he told me that the engine had seized and that i needed a new one.

Anyone else experience the same / a similar problem with their '06 A4? If so any input would be great!

And if anyone would know of a place that i could acquire an engine / have it rebuilt that would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks.

Have you found out what caused the engine to seize?
My '08 A4 is in a very similar situation and I'd like to gather as much info to understand what happened and why it happened.
TIA!

Exact thing happened to my 08 a4. Ended up having the whole engine replaced under extended warranty.
