Oil Pump Chain
Posted 12 June 2018 - 06:25 PM
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 inde
Sorry to hear this. Was it an OEM chain you used 18 months ago ?
Was done by an independent garage so I doubt it. Not got details of what was used.

He’s going to look into a refurb or replacement unit for it! :-(

Oh no sorry to hear that.. sounds like oil starvation of the turbo when the pump chain failed
Yeah my thoughts. Engine was around 3,000 rpm and on boost when the chain failed and so a fair run down for the turbo with no oil!
Should maybe have thought of this first and checked it prior to committing to the cost but you you know what hindsight is......

Don’t really want to go down the used route having spent so much on the rest of the car!

Got it back !!!!
New chains, guides, sprockets etc including new oil pump sprocket which was not in the kit!
Re-furbished turbo with new shaft and compressor wheel.
Cost me a large sum of cash but fingers crossed this will now be good for the next few years !!!

Best of luck mate. Hopefully they’ve put your injectors back into the same cylinders, or they’ve at least checked the injector coding.
I'd taken them out before they got the car and had them cleaned and ensured they were etched clearly !!
