Hi Dave thanks for that. I didn't want to take the risk of it coming on during the MoT (it should have been yesterday) as I only have a week left on it

It's a faulty solenoid not the actual air pump. There all the same Uk/jdm. It's located at the back of the upper intake and is the top solenoid. Bit of a pain to change in place but possible.
Ahh, thanks - next question have you got any ?

Re: Help with Oil cooler line failure please

OK in the right thread this time (not sure about picture rotation - theyre fine in base directory)

Re: Help with Oil cooler line failure please

Re: Help with Oil cooler line failure please

Oh no! I think you might as well get an assistant to take some pics in the engine bay and under the car to see if it can be pinpointed - but for it to insta-dump a lot of oil, it will likely be a high pressure source such as oil cooler line or filter. Certainly don't drive the car, and make some no...
