Hi, I'm new here. I used the Advanced Search but couldn't find a topic related to mine. I'm in the US (Indiana) and have a 2015 Limited Edition with the 2015 1.8L DI Turbo DOHC 4cyl engine. Back in October 2020, at 59.5K, my 6-speed Automatic Transmission failed and was replaced at the dealer under warranty (had to pay $1k - under miles, but 3 mths over 36mth limit). Since then, we're at 65.5K miles and we heard a loud, strange tapping sound. The dealer (Andy Mohr Avon) found a lose bolt at (I believe) the torque converter and will retighten it under the replacement transmission warranty. However, they informed me it was caused by a failing crankshaft in the engine - apparently the crankshaft is moving too much - I guess vibrating too much. They told me it will fail at any time and that I need a new or replacement engine. Has anyone heard of this issue? I've asked if there's a simpler fix than replacing the entire engine, but don't know the answer to that, yet. Any assistance appreciated.
