    New Engine?

    I found out that my car was serviced 6 months before I bought it. The explanation was "Engine, universal-replace". Does this mean a new engine was put in my car? Also, my car came with the 10 speaker monsoon option. There's 4 up front, 2 in the back seat, and 2 in the rear...Where the hell is the other 2?

    Honestly, I don't know how dealers and garages do things admin wise. SO I could be way off here!

    But usually things or more abbreviated and truncated rather than being drawn out.

    From places I worked, for an Engine Replacement u might see
    -Engine RR
    -Engine R^2 (as in r-squared),
    -Eng 2R
    -Engine Replaced,
    -Eng Rem Repl

    I don't see using Engine, Universal-Replace being used. particularly I note the comma.
    I'd say they serviced the Engine and replaced a Universal.

    Crawl under the car and check your universal joints. If one looks much newer than the other...bingo!

    The operation code was J1840. Engine Replacement... Looks like my engine has less than 20k on it. Calling the dealership that did the work this morning to verify the original problem.

    Well I guess if the original problem was isolated to the Engine (good chance) then it is a bonus...fresh motor just primed for subtle abuse!
