One day the low oil light came on, brought it to carousol Audi in golden valley mn and they informed me about the oil sludge problem and told me to get my oil receipts ready. I changed my own oil and don't have my oil receipts and am now being denied a warranty coverage. Was told that I would have a new engine put in if I had oil receipts but will cost at least 9000 without the warranty.
