Damaged Sump: How difficult to change
My car (156 JTS) has gone to my local garage because it is leaking oil from the sump plug hole. My garage has recommended getting the Sump hole remachined from an engineering shop. (The hole is already too big now to fit another insert/helicoil).
Anyway, apparently to remove the sump, they have told me they had to remove the exhaust manifold, and to remove the manifold they have to remove the air con compressor.......... Is it really this difficult to remove the sump ?
