Engine shut down during hard acceleration. Had it towed to

Customer Question

Engine shut down during hard acceleration. Had it towed to dealership. They got it started and checked oil pressure. They report it is low at idle and at 2000 rpm. They say I need a new engine and want 14K. I paid for the diagnostic and drove it home. Oil warning light comes on only at idle.No smoke or rough sounds coming from engine while revving. I recently got the oil changed at corner shop and suspect they put the wrong oil in. This is a 2009 A4 quarto with 115k miles on it.
JA: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?
Customer: When it shut down the Engine light came on. It is not on now. Oil pump is probably original..What about the oil pickup tube being clogged?
JA: What is the model of your '00 Audi?
Customer: 2009 A4 Quatro
JA: Are you fixing your A4 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: We have only changed their filter
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: We got a starter code fault, too
