I have a 2001 a4 2.8 was driving and hit a huge bump on these crazy new york streets, my car jumped a little and a few minutes after that my oil light came on. Got it up today and relized that the oil panel is cracked. Does any body know the price for a new one?
Also right after the bump i hear screeching noises coming from what seems like the brakes but i checked them they looked fine, any idea what is wrong ? [confused]

How bad is the crack? JB Weld works really good and can be a temporary fix until you get a new pan. Lucky for you the 2.8 pan is really easy to swap out!

Its preety bad it happened last night and in the morning i checked my dip stick and it was dry so i doubt a temporary fix would be good enough im preety sure i need a new one =/

You should be fine, happen to me atleast 3 times with my 2.8 30V. Hope it doesnt happen with my 1.8t though, that would be a bitch lol
