Customer Question

How, at 56000miles, with the required amount of engine oil, did my oil pump fail and as a result seized the engine on my Nissan Cabstar? I have full service history and between services.
Thanks

The oil warning light came on and within half a mile it was at a garage. It sat there overnight and then was assessed.

Hi .
When the oil light came on did you hear any engine noise ?
Did the engine stall after the oil light came On.
Did you notice the engine temp get higher when the light came on .
Any indication to show oil pressure or did the light just come on .
You said the light came on and within 1/2 mile you was at a garage .
did you get there without any problem and was the engine still running
smoothly.
