emosley210 Posted April 5 Share Posted April 5 Wow, first post here too. So here's what happened. About a week ago I was going down the highway at 70mph and all of a sudden my engine shuts off and I get p0011 and p0021 codes. I tried restarting it because I didn't have service to look up the codes and the car cranks but won't really turn over. I get it towed home and start trying to figure out what happened. I drop the oil pan and find a bunch of fine metal and shavings in there (pics below). I'm already aware that this forbidden glitter shouldn't be there so I start looking into where it came from. I pull the turbo and there's no play in the shaft, all the fins are still there, and it spins freely. All the banjo bolt filters are removed, The OCV's didn't seem all gunked up, and there's an aftermarket oil line with an inline filter for the turbo so as far as I can tell, the turbo didn't blow up on me. Without breaking anything open all I can assume is that it's my engine bearings that just got shredded, right? There was never any rod knock though, it was just very sudden. Long story short, I've read enough on here that it sounds like my options are to rebuild the engine or sell the car as is for parts. I've always been pretty mechanically inclined but I've never attempted an engine rebuild on any vehicle. I've put a lot of time into this one and feel like I'd rather keep it than just chalk it up as a loss. Plus the idea of rebuilding the engine sounds like a fun challenge and a way to learn a lot more about this car in general. I've done a lot of reading on other threads like Max Capacity's trying to learn as much as I can but now I'm trying to figure out where I should start and what resources besides this forum I should look into if this is the path I choose to take.
