    right here we go, i was heading on to the motorway when i heard a clunk and something rattle down the underside of the car then it ground to a stop. it sounded like it was tryin to run on three cylinders so turned it ofs quick. anyway got it towed home and found oil coming off the front bumper on the drivers side. anybody got some ideas? i think it could be crank related. :sos:

    Is it engine oil or gearbox oil? Also have you tried to turn it over since?

    Did your car cut out after you heard the noise and did the engine dash light come up? I think you'll need to take a look or get a garage to take a look to get a propper diagnosis of the problem.

    It depends on how much oil it is. There is always some oil in the intercooler pipes (from crank vent eg)

    i was thinking it could be a boost pipe but like markyboy said what about the oil? and it had started to drip oil a couple of days before. what about the crank pully?
