Think me engine has gone ?

Well,

Driving home tonight and the engine oil pressure light came on and the STOP now sign, then the orange eml came on

Sounds like a bag of hammers and it's rocking side to side on tick over

Any ideas ?
Cheers

Re: Top mount turbo manifold

I don't know if anyone has fitted one, but I do know that mani is no different than the one we have on ours apart from it might be more flowed,

Which you can do on yours anyway, and at over £270 there is no way I'll ever be getting one

Ticking sound

Anyone know what a Ticking sound could be behind the glove box, sounds just like a clock on a bomb about to go off,

But i don't think I've upset anyone 😀

Could it have anything to do with my air con not working?
