New member here, looking for some input! Picked a 2010 Audi a4 at a really price from a friend. They only downside is there were some obvious engine issues.
His Independent mechanic states "overreved engine causing valves in cylinder #4 to bend, low compression"
Dealer states "rocker arm came loose, causing valve to dropped causing damage/scoring to cylinder #4"
Not sure who to believe but I know I have 2 options. Pull the head and inspect current motor for damage (known for having oil consumption issues stage 1 performed- which is a bullsh*t procedure in my opinion), or swap in a lower mileage longblock.
1st time working on an Audi most of my experience comes from the Honda (b series), sr20, and 1jz/2jz platforms. Let me know what you guys think!
