<-----No More Beetle :(
Ok, I just heard from the dealership. It’s official, the engine is shot.
He said there definitely was no oil in it. They filled it up, it started up, they let it run and it was doing fine. As soon as they gave it some gas, when it hit 2000 RPM the oil pressure dropped. They pulled the oil pan and there was a mess. Said there’s definitely internal engine damage and it needs a new engine. They are calling their insurance agent now to see what to do now. I asked if this would be a new engine or used, he said he didn’t know.
I told him I take great care of this car. It has low miles, never had a problem, and that from no fault of mine, my engine is now trashed, and I will not accept anything but a new engine. That even with that, considering they failed to do a simple oil change, I’m worried about their ability to do an engine swap. And that a used engine will only make that feeling of uneasiness worse.
Good for you, Pete! And if they show any signs of trying to give you the shaft just throw the word lawyer in the convo and they'll change their tune real fast. They better or I'll send some friends from Long Island with their Louisville Sluggers :kult:
