    Hi, bought my 2001 AMK S3 129k in January. Had a few problems with it one of which being a faulty breather pipe which has caused excessive creaming on the filler cap and in the breather pipes. I was thinking it would a good precaution to replace the oil pump incase any of this gunk has found it's way into the pump.

    What do people think, is this a good idea or overly cautious? If I do do it is it a difficult and expensive job?

    Thanks

    I did mine while the sump was off. Only an extra 20mins labour and £50-60 for the pump. Pump failure is a bad thing after all...
