Hi I have an 2001 Audi A41.8t with 170,000 mi. And it ran perfect for 2 months; it actually ran so well that I would go for a ride and people thought there was no more than 80,000-100,000 miles on it, and it was maintained to standards. Recently the oil sensor light came on, I stopped driving it to work immediately and it was driven no more than 1-2 miles after the light came on, when the engine began making a steady shaking noise and the check engine light came on. I was told oil line problems were common in these models so I had it towed to a trusted garage. He told me the motor isnt getting any oil and everything is probably sludged up. From searching the web I found this was an EXTREMELY common problem and Audi had an extended 8 year warranty/settlement for these cars. He recommends replacing the oil screen because its definitely clogged up, but even if that fixes the problem, there could still be engine damage from it running without oil. Comments and advice are greatly appreciated thanks so much.
have the same problem?
