Looking for advice on how to proceed with a repair.
Oil pressure warning light came on not far from home. Stopped the car and switched off. Mechanic came to look at car and engine ran albeit rattling top end.
Turns out the oil pump has disintegrated.
My question, should I get the oil pump replaced and hope everything else is ok (stray bits of oil pump, further damage), which is seemingly impossible to predict
do I get the engine refurbished to ensure everything will be ok.
On a budget but obviously looking to keep the car for a while yet.
Engine has 120k on it.
