I am posting this in the A3/S3 section as I am trying to get as much info as I possibly can I have had an oil pump failure on my car causing probably serious damage to my engine (please see this post- Engines Let go! )
It looks like this is a common fault with this engine, so much so that Audi US have given cars built between 1999-2004 using the 1.8T engine an unlimited mileage or 8 years warranty. I want to build up as much amunition as possible as I am going thru Audi to get this fixed, I must say that they have not said yay or nay to it yet but forewarned is forearmed.
If this has happened to you or anyone you know and you have tried through main dealers to be recompenesed I would appreciate your experiences. If any of you are members of other Vw/Audi forums I would be mighty grateful if you could pass the link onto my thread.
