enter into the promotion/discount code box at checkout - FOCCOM25 (if memory serves me right)

even better, enter MIDMONTH30 for 30% off. so not too bad at £42!

yeah thats a bargain! shame our local stores are out of stock though... grrr! will call tomorrow, see if they know what kind of times they get delivered... thanks :) the garage who quoted today was £80 for the part, then 3 and a half hours at £52 an hour... going to call a mobile guy who did my cambelt, he charges £35, then £45 for the pump makes it not quite so painful... bad enough though lol... When replacing the pump, is there anything else i would need to supply? does the pump come with the pressure release valve etc?

!Removed! hell, what a nightmare!

Really sorry to hear your woes! I had a similar issue with a car a while back. Bought from a dealer, a couple of weeks later an electrical fault developed. Was an intermittent one and although it didn't stop the car is boiled the battery. Rang the dealer up he basically laughed at me and said if it starts drives and stops its not his issue.

Hope the pump will sort it for you fella. By the sounds of it, I guess who ever had the car before you wasn't clued up on the fault and just poured more oil in.

It's in the garage as we speak, hes taking the sump off and checking for blockages/crap in it, he also pointed out the O rings are worn out, so hes going to replace them. So just keeping fingers crossed. Otherwise the oil pump is ordered and should be fitted tomorrow... bye bye bank balance :(

OK... Fingers crossed! Picked up the car, he said he had it running for over an hour and the light hadnt come on. He replaced the O Rings and cleaned the strainer? in the sump (something like that). I've just taken it out for about 40 mins, and the light has not come on... so hopefully its all done! Only cost me another £120!! lol but cheaper than a new pump :)

thanks to everyone for advice & help :)

Did he change the oil at the same time? If not would be very much worth oil+filter+engine flush!

Whatever may have been causing the issue could still be floating around.

Touch wood though!
