    hi

    also sorry to hear of the issues , may i ask please what part did they change please , should be on ur invoice , plus part number may also be there , so we can then see if engine oil needed to be to be drained to change this solenoid

    unfortunately if going by other people that have had issues with there engines JLR rarely offer a discount on a new engine , but would be good to at least see what part was changed please

    Can u remember what the intermittent issue came up on the dashboard before the oil critically low plse , plus if u get a code reader your be able to see all the faults that are stored into the engines ecu

    also hope that helps a little

    Surely it won’t be a 2 litre, it will be the SDV6, and we know what happens to them

    Usually get 15-20 starts warning “service soon”, followed by a similar number “service required”

    I agree with all the comments about the need to go legal and with full + documented information, but if you give up on that, your local garage should be able to sort this out for under £5k, never mind the £15k you have been quoted.
    Modern engines are not supposed to use any oil between services, but from my experience a turbocharger can suddenly use oil, and quickly, if the seals wear. Then you are relying on electrical level alerts.
