Engine just cut out?
Any ideas guys? I've just bought a 2.0 twinspark 147 with the big ends gone. I swapped the complete engine and drove it 450 miles in one trip from Cornwall to Aldershot and it didn't miss a beat.
Today, i've just popped down the shops in it and the engine has cut out, was going up a slight hill, it felt down on power, I dropped it down a gear and it died. It said low oil pressure just as it died. I tried to re-start it and it started but wasn't idling nice and when I tried to move off it died again and the low oil pressure light came on again. It sounded ok though, no knocking or anything.
I've abandoned it at the side of the road for now. There are no engine management lights when I restarted it.
I assuming the low oil pressure is a red herring as it happens as it's just about to cut out?
I had a look under it expecting to see an oil slick or something but it all looks fine and there is oil in the sump.
Any ideas guys?
