Hello

these cars have an issue with the timing chain as it can slip and jump teeth its normally changed at a major service

so its quite possible the issue is with the main chain and thats effected your oil pump chain at the same time

as the car only has 14,000 miles on the clock I'm assuming that you have a full service history all at Peugeot garages?

if so then then there's good chance Peugeot will make all the repairs under warranty or at least provide parts

I'd suggest to get in touch with customer services as the 1st step

its likely that you may need a new engine as no oil pressure will destroy an engine quite quickly
