I just got the car yesterday. Today I went to go fill the tank, on my way home the car started to make this really loud clicking noise. Then the oil light came on. The clicking noise was so loud that you could hear it inside the building(dealership). On my way to the dealership the vehicle felt like it was losing power. At one point when I hit the gas it wouldnt go anywhere. Has anyone ever had this problem or know what it is. Luckily the dealership gave me a 2yr warranty on the car.

if it was the turbo they should. i mean you have the warranty. now that you own the car make sure you always get full synthetic and etc. it helps against the oil sludge issue. ive never had it, but other have.

On top of moving to synthetics (Mobil 1, or Amsoil), most like Mobil 1 5W30. Make sure you are using the upgraded, Bigger MANN Oil filters.

The bigger oil filter were made to reduce the chance of Oil sludge, they also increase the capacity of oil we can use which i believe lowers oil temps a little.

If the dealer is paying for it let them fix it [:p]
