Bad luck visits me once again friends.
I got the big red oil can on the way home the other day, although only for a few seconds. I looked to pull over but it cleared. All was fine for a couple of days then it did it again but once again it cleared before I could stop. It only seems to happen between 1600 and 1800 rpm. I can clear it by blipping the throttle past 1800rpm So I'm guessing this is only a partial blockage to the oil pick up SO FAR!!
I thought seeing as it wasn't too bad at the minute I would give it a flush and some oil and filter. I used Forte engine flush but it's not made any difference, still getting an intermittent pressure warning at low revs. I believe the sensor doesn't work below 1300rpm is this correct ?
So I'm guessing it's a sump off job, I'd like to replace the pump and pickup pipe. How hard is it with basic tools and basic know-how? Is there a guide I could follow anywhere?
Also does an AJL have a sump gasket or just some sort of sealant?
I'm not sure I'm able to tackle this on my own. Does anyone have any idea how much a garage would charge for the job if I supplied the parts?
Thanks for reading. Feeling very anxious about this just now. Also have mot and tax due end of the month and I've still noit managed to fit the new downpipe for the mot yet!
