recon engine 156 2.0JTS 16V 02 model

I am located in Liverpool, engine packed in on M6 this morning, NO OIL when dipstick was taken out. Firstly why no oil warning light ??????????? secondly whats the best option, rebuild, recon motor or does anybody have a good second hand motor ?????? it still starts, but sounds like bearings are shot. Where and who can do the job in the North West and what kind of cost am I looking at ????????

Try Autolusso. They are located near Bedford but can collect the car for you at a small cost.

There isn't an oil warning light as such, just a low oil pressure light that basically tells you the engine is knackered.

The JTS and TS engines tend to use oil and it recommended to check the level weekly.
