Currently stood at the side of a dual carriageway with a broken car!!

Heard a noise and suddenly lost oil pressure. Not dropped any oil so pretty confident the oil pump drive chain has snapped!!

Only had it replaced 18 months ago! :-(

Any recommendations for somewhere in the East Midlands who may be able to replace it?

Just hope the 20 secs with no pressure hasn’t done too much damage!!

s****e, bad luck dude!! It will need to be checked before just going for a straight replacement. As Fahad says, hope nothing else was damaged in the process!!

Was done by an independent garage so I doubt it.  Not got details of what was used.
