Hi I own a 2007 Audi a4 Cabriolet (B7) 1.8T, had it for about a year. For a few weeks now the oil pressure light has been showing up so I topped it up with oil. After I had topped up the oil the light went out but after a few days it reappeared. I topped it with oil on two occasions and the same thing happened on both (light would reappear after going out). So it had been a week after I last topped it up with oil but as I've been so busy with work, I couldnt take it to audi to get a diagnostic.
Friday night I had to go over to Essex from London to meet a mate of mine. So on the way back to London, after half an hour on the motorway the car just cutout on me. When I tried to start it up again the engine management light showed up on the dash, the engine just kept turning over but wouldn't start. So I ended up having to tow the car back to my mechanic in London.
So after my mechanic had a look at the car he delivered the bad news. He said that I would need a whole new engine, he managed to get it started but the engine sounded awful. Im absolutely gutted, I don't have the money to fork out over a grand for a replacement engine. I don't know if I should just sell the car as a non runner or pay to get it fixed.
If anyone knows where I can pickup a decent engine for cheap it would be greatly appreciated.
