I have a 53 astra g 1.7 dti. I was driving down the M11 on my way home when the oil light started flashing. I fulled over straight away. Had the car relayed to my local garage. The sump has been removed and there is no metal in the sump. The guy is looking to take the rocker cover of next week to check that part of te engine. I have read through the forum and from what I can gain from all of you is that it might be oil pump related. I have asked the guy to take the cambelt cover off and have asked him to check the oil pump drive gear. If the nut has come loose. Am I looking at a new oil pump and gear and will I also be looking for a new turbo in the future. I was cruising at about 60 when the oil light was flashing. DFinally has anyone got an idea on what sort of cost I am looking at for the total job to be done.
Many thanks a Newbie
