Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Audi A4 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic
Recently, I backed up over a curb, and caused the oil to leak out of my car. I drove a 1/2 mile and the engine siezed up. There was a trail of oil, and a torn up engine shield and a dislodged oil filter.
My question has 2 parts.
Can the engine be repaired after seizing up and being declared " ruined"? If the engine must be replaced, can you recommend a good repair shop in the Philadelphia metro area that will use salvage yard engines?
Can backing over a curb cause engine oil to leak out? Knock out an oil filter? And if the oil leaks out, how far can an Audi A 4 be driven, normally, before the engine fails?
