Long story short:
Oil pressure light, blocked gauze, new gauze by garage, oil pressure light even worse and strip to find gauze 100% full of garage sump sealant!! Grrrr
Dropped my sump off and wondered if you more knowledgeable folk would have an opinion on the centre main bearing cap...
Its darker in colour than the others but cant work out if its from friction or simply a lot of miles worth of long life oil gunk in that particular area (maybe a return gallery in that area?)
Please see the pic below:
For a laugh, heres what came out of my gauze in the first instance...
And heres the gauze 100 miles later after the garage had finished with it!
