A3 3.2 Engine Replacement
The Audi engineer came, inspected the car and agreed that the engine needed to be changed so the dealer ordered a new engine.
A week later I got a call that they installed the engine but that a part of the engine crank was not fitting and the engine was not firing. After conversations with Audi, they later discovered that the engine was mislabeled and it was a mislabeled Tuareg engine.
Another engine was ordered, they told me they verified that the engine was the correct engine by reading out the parts numbers on the phone. The new engine arrived but this time they told me that it too was not fitting and that they were not able to find a new engine to replace my defective one. They tell me ALL engines in North America that have been manufactured have an incorrect part on so it would not fit my car.
Solution they are proposing is to take the short block of my old engine and use it on the new engine – I think this is unacceptable, can you please let me know what you think? Thanks.
