You say the check engine light came on, but I would expect the oil pressure warning to light as well if the sludge problem is causing the MIL to go on. The clanking could indicate severely low oil pressure. DO NOT RUN THE CAR IF THAT IS THE CASE. I never heard that even with my sludge problem. Lots to read about that here: http://members.cox.net/ambox/audi_sludge/

  Hi there,
    I have a 98 Audi A4 1.8T 127,000 miles. This morning I turned on the car and the engine made a clanking noise and the check engine light came on. The check engine light blinked and stayed on.
    When I checked the oil, the oil was dirty though I just changed it a week a 1/2 ago. 
    How serious is this?
