    Getting a new motor under warrantee!

    I figured I would share this....

    Drove the wife's S5 on Saturday and was coming up the hill towards the house and opened her up a little, but never even got to redline... When I let off the car lost significant power and the EPC light came on. Sounded and felt like it lost a bank of cylinders.... Pulled into the driveway, shut her down and restarted and all was well. Idling smooth no issues.... Scanned it and there were some miss-fires on a couple of cylinders. Figured I will take it in and let them know, but no engine light or EPC after the restart, so wasn't too concerned...

    Yesterday morning the Mrs drives to work and the motor starts making all kinds of clicking and clacking sounds (I heard it on her phone but wasn't there), so towed it to the dealer....

    Was informed today that we will be getting a new motor! Apparently when they drained the oil there was all kinds of metal in the oil. Motor only had 24K miles on it!

    Needless to say, I am SO glad I did not chip the car yet, damn, as this would have been an expensive week!

    Cheers

    to the tune of $23K+. Our Q7 motor was replaced and thank god for the extended warranty. They told me how much it would have cost me if I didn't. You may want to consider having them replace all inaccessible hoses and seals and etc as a preventative measure. Labor will be free so may as well. I got a discount on all the parts as well.

    Glad to hear you are getting a new engine free of charge. What I find a little scary is that your engine suffered a catastrophic failure with no warning at only 24K miles. Kind of makes you wonder if Audi has a quality control problem?

    You know, I had a code for a misfiring cylinder twice, about 6-8 months apart. Both times the engine light came on and both times it was when I was going up hill (the same hill, both times) and the car never felt any different so I drove it and the CEL light went off about 50 miles later. I noticed it happened when you were going up hill as well and thought that was a weird coincidence.

    Glad you're getting it fixed under warranty!

    Yeah I was thinking of asking them if there are any problem areas we can address while the motor is out.

    The car is practically brand new and has had zero issues since we owned it. We got it with about 14K on it and I believe previously belonged to an older lady, so she probably did not beat on it, so no idea what this could have been.

    Thanks though, Ill see what they suggest.
