If lack of oil could have been causing the original problem, is this something the mechanic should have checked, as he has been servicing the car since I got it? My reason for asking is, if I get another engine would I be better changing mechanic?
Hi, I returned to the mechanic today and explained what had happened, he told me he had not checked the engine oil when I had left it in with the original fault as he had been working on the transmission, and told me that those ford engines do burn some oil, I asked had he changed the oil last year when he did the service and MOT check, and he said he did, I asked how it could burn through 5L of oil after 2.5k miles, and mentioned that the low engine oil could have been the cause of the fault to begin with, he just shrugged. Think its time to change garage.. :(
Thanks for the help and advice.
Hi, thanks again, wish I had have asked here first things might have went another way, I'll leave the feedback now.
