This thread is the sum of all fears; good luck!

BTW if they don't cover you this community will pull together and make it an issue for them; the engine is not a maintenance item and has to be covered.

With all the technology these cars have you would think a low oil shut down would be a no brainier, even my homelite generator has an automatic low oil shut down sensor

There was a guy on the forum that ended up with a stroker motor when his went down for the count-that would be incredible!

That is great news! If you don't mind sharing what the cost is going to be? I believe it is a Carmax warranty?
