I understand that!
My point being, is that the ECU hasn't got a problem shutting the engine down into Guardian mode if the oil is getting low so why doesn't it do it when the water in fuel sensor is flagging?
Your point about the lazy owner not rectifying the problem and causing further damage is taken, but surely the error log would tell you how long the owner has been ignoring the issue. And if it is what d'ya think would be a fair time span to retify the problem?
As a person that has shelled out for a new Opti in the past the major reason for doing so was for the warranty.
Was the engine installed by a dealer and was a water seperator/filter fitted?
