Leaving the M42 in pouring rain this morning I lost power steering in Clare's GT. I manhandled it off the slip road, narrowly missing the divider (that was scary), looked down to see no warning lights just the revs on zero
Whilst still rolling, I let the clutch up & all seemed fine. Drove off and the same thing happened again but this time the engine sounded rough & squeaky.
Got to work (close to the M way exit) & after speaking to Ned, called the AA.
Explained the situation to the chap and relayed the do not start message. AA man checked the oil & it looked empty
Since having the rebuilt & running it in, I've been overly anal in checking the oil. It was 3/4 on the dipstick on Saturday but I added enough to top to the max. Car has done c70 miles since.
Slight sign of external leakage but AA man said the exhausts were sooty & oily.
Car has been recovered to Autolusso so I trust in Ned to get this sorted, especially after a Łkkk spend in November
Now running around in a new i30. Surprisingly nice
Got it FOC for 72 hours. Not sure after that
Anyway, sad pics. Look away if you're of a sensitive disposition!!
Any guesses as to the problem?
