Are there any symptoms when/ if the car bursts its oil pipes ? I mean are there any limp modes etc. or is it a sudden gush of oil down the road ?
I got very lucky the first time, I heard the metallic 'ting' sound of the clamps blowing off the Pirtek kit, glanced in my rear view to, looking to see what had fallen off. All i saw was a very black very concentrated line of what I thought in that split second was coolant, so shut the engine off, I was fortunately just passing my house and was able with the momentum of the car at 50+ able to roll most of the way up the 1/2mile driveway before coming to a halt.
The bluey black smoke coming out of the engine bay, wheel arches and from under the sills gave it away that it was oil.
As the remaining oil cooler hard lines are facing downwards on mine the oil had jetted out at high pressure, onto the surface of the road and some had rebounded back off the road and onto the underside and exhaust of the car.
Second time I was driving to the garage to get the Autolusso Mocal kit fitted, hyper aware, eyes on the rear view mirror constantly, it went again, same black line, same engine off instantly with lots of smoke from oil on exhaust. had to be towed the rest of the way.
