My audi hit something and put a hole in the oil pan, i replaced the oil pan and oil and a guy say my main insert needs to be replace or swap the engine im wondering what is the main insert and should i...

he is probably saying that the main bearings are damaged from lack of lubrication. if you didnt shut down the engine right after the oil leak it doesnt take long to damage the engine. I would replace the engine in that case.

Hi, i'm having a little problem with stereo on my 98 Audi A4
