Default Q5 2.0T Engine Codes

Hi. New to the forum though I've referred to it numerous times to help with the many issues I've had with my 2013 Audi Q5 2.0T Premium Plus.

Well, as expected, the engine has tapped out (at just over 155,000 km) - internal damage to cylinder walls, recommended new long block at the cost of $16k+tax. I say "as expected" because of long-time oil consumption issues (refill 1L for every 600km) and other common problems (e.g. timing chain, and more!) that began at 70,000km.


I'd like to get another 2-3 years out of this vehicle and so, I'm looking to put in a used engine that doesn't have inherent design flaws. To do this, I need:

(1) to stay away from engines that are known to have inherent issues related to oil consumption and potential engine damage; and so, I would like to know the engine codes and associated production year for these models; AND/OR

(2) Engine codes of Q5 2.0T engines produced in 2018 and 2019 that are suitable for my 2013 Q5 (assuming that all those prior to 2018 still have known flaws that will lead to engine failure).

Any help would be appreciated! As usual, Audi Canada and the dealership are of no assistance.
