    Its the after run pump and it pumps water not oil my friend...

    It not working is an issue tbh... Its not an uncommon problem and from what I have read it can be anything from a fuse to replacing the pump (obvious really and not much help... soz)

    Start with the obvious, fuse and work back from there.. Not sure if its one of the fuses on top of the battery or one in the cars fuse box..

    checked fuse and its fine, had a read up on the after run pump, apparently only kick in if temp reaches 110 c. so will have to do a few experiments to see if it is broken.
