But no compression? I think they mean low compression. Is yours a manual? And have you ever over revved it by downshifting it to the wrong gear?
I'm not sure if they checked for carbon, they're not being very informative. That being said, the more I think about it, the more I realize the car has likely been running rich for a while.
The fact someone put a 2017 in a 15 is promising. I'd love to get the 2019 engine, ecu and wiring harness and swap out everything, but I can't drop the money if I'm not sure it'll fit. I wonder if there's a way to cross reference the mounts? The dealership informed me the engine assemblies are different part numbers but I know that could be for a variety of reasons. If anyone has any info on ways I could confirm fitment I'd be super grateful. I'd be getting a steal on the 2019 engine + harness + ECU, but it's only a steal if it all bolts up haha
JJ - I didn't catch if you bought your car new, or used. I suppose if it's used, maybe the powertrain warranty didn't carry over.
All I know is that the car that I have purchased but not taken ownership of yet, I'm not doing anything to void the warranty or running over (what is it, 100k) miles for 10 friggin years. At 11 months and 29 days, if it even hiccups, back to the dealer it goes. Ha!
