Asked by Mar 19, 2014 at 01:31 PM about the 2011 Hyundai Accent

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Engine ruined due to water in oil. Dealer insists only way water could get there was by sucking in through the air intake. Oil pan supposedly had chunks of ice in it when drained. insists that block not cracked nor head gasket leaking. Will replace engine with similiar mileage one for $2207 +tax, labor in. I have never heard of such a problem short of driving it into a lake.

Me either, but maybe snow might have blown into the engine bay and melted into the air intake.
