Exclamation New Engine

Please Help!

My car has 60K its a 2012. I can't drive more than 1 mile without the error message popping up telling me to reduce performance. I just received two quotes for an engine. 18K & 13K is that the going rate or can I find cheaper?

Who told you, that 'reduced performance' leads to a broken engine?

This sounds weird...

Well, I took it in because of that error image. And once they changed the oil they found specs from the engine. & the error light is still showing. He says the reason is due to lack of oil changes which is what caused to engine to defect.

Seems very odd on a Karma. I change my Oil once a year, since the ICE is only used less than 50% of the time (closer for me about 40%). I have 45,000 miles.

@Miss Blanche, make sure you are taking to a Fisker authorized Service Location.

Yes, Alex Pop is the OC. I truthfully don't know how the Engine has ran its course. I just replaced the cuppler in August & the technician said he did an oil change. However, when Alex took the dipping stick from the oil he said it was "extremely old and he could see engine shavings"

who did the coupler? You are better off shipping your car to Joe vs paying 13k

He said it was only 100.00 extra and its best to change it since he is already removing the engine.

The best way we can help you is if you give the following info:

1. Who replaced the coupler?
2. What are the codes the vehicle is displaying? i.e Pxxxx
3. What type of gasoline are you using?
4. At what mileage was the coupler replaced?
5. Did the person/company that replaced the coupler use synthetic oil when they changed the oil?

If the engine is really bad you will see more than just misfire codes (i.e. knock codes and Cam out of phase codes etc). You really need to get the codes and post them here or it is impossible to give you meaningful feedback without guessing about what the issue may or may not be.
