    Angry CAN THERE BE ANYTHING ELSE WRONG!!!!!!

    Ok as the regulars prob know ve had a HUGE list of problems with my audi. latest thing is oil sump feed was blocked and giving low oil pressure soooooooooooooooo decided to get new oil, oil filter, oil pump as pointless not doing that. so off me and me dad went subframe off, front off etc Before we even got to pump found a engine mount smashed to bits so rushed out got one from local spares shop, afters HOURS of work oil pump off and we decied to saw filter off to check it. OH MY GOD it had 6 holes left in the filter and no im not joking how my car survived i dont know. any way new pump fitted top of range 10-40W oil put back in. Oh nearly forgot we also found the alternator tensionor is knackered so that needs doing..........so put car back together and lowered her down started up and my car sounded lovely. It was so quite ticked over silently.So i got no oil light, yey and it even solved my bloody noisy engine. because got low oil pressure my cams were running noisy but not any more. BUT THEN WHATS THIS............ we pull the bloody car out and a pool of clear liquid on floor near back wheel your joking arnt you? brake caliper bleed valve puked its guts so back out again to get NEW caliper. WILL THIS CAR EVER BE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then today got a blowing noise and the gasket between turbo and down pipe shot to hell!!

    Sounds like you were pleased with the result from the oil etc so at least the engine is not going to seize on you.

    Glad you got the pump and sump sorted out. Was there much garbage floating about in the sump blocking the pickup?
