Just on the way home from work today and my oil pump seems to have failed, Ive been seaching this forum and the net and have gathered that this is most likely the problem. Basicly as i came off the motorway and my oil light starts beeping 3 times and have a large oil light warning on. Ive also got a fairly loud ticking noise coming from the head on the engine. What im wondering is what parts will i need to order? Just the oil pump itself? Should i check anything else first, could there be a clog ect? And is it safe to drive the car like this, or could this result in oil stavation and engine damage?
Any help would be appreciated.
