    EMERGENCY...need your help guys...(sydney)

    GibGib, sorry for the cross post mate, but I am in a bit of a bind

    G'day all,

    Well, I was out on a drive with some of the Sydney lads, sailing along without a problem in the world, and all of a sudden, the Pug starts loosing oil pressure

    I managed to pull it over as soon as I noticed the red light flicker on, so dont think I sustained any engine damage, but the entire contents of the sump was no longer.

    I cant for the life of me find where it has come from, maybe from around the oil pressure sender unit, an oil line ????

    To make a long story short, has anyone had this problem or can anyone suggest a place to start looking?

    A few k's before I pulled the car over, I did "hit" (not literally) a rather large bump when going over a bridge, and it whacked a pretty big shock through the car, so that may have been the cause.

    I am staying in Belrose in the cities north, and need to find a Pug dealer (EssCarGo???) to get it fixed.

    Any and all help appreciated as I am in a bit of a situation now.

    Hey Chipper,

    A similar thing happenned to me a few months back. Oil pressure gauge was dropping when i was driving and pressure warning light was coming on. Pulled over and in the time it took me to get out and look under the car there was a massive pool of oil. Problem - found out that one of the hoses leading to my oil cooler had split. Had it replaced. Most of my pipes round there, breather hoses etc. were cactus antway and a short time later had new motor and nice new pipes fitted in that region. A few options for Peugeot mechanics in the general region of Belrose. I am in the same area. P504, EssCarGo, P+Q on High Street in Willoughby. Take your pick.

    Chipper,

    What did it end up being
    was it one of the two hoses that lead to the oil cooler (they r to high up to be damaged by something on the road and r realy durable industrial hydraulic type hoses)
    or did something rip through your sump
    Like shoj has mentioned there r hoses everywhere in the standard 205's.
    and they r usually brittle and have small cracks in some of them.
    It is a lot of work but it is a good idea to start reengineering the 205 engine bay and makes thing neater and more durable.
    I have spent a lot of time cleaning and stopping leaks as then you can see if something is in danger of letting go.
    Anyway hopefully you noticed it soon enough

    Chipper,

    Bummer about the engine mate. I am not sure how late I am but the closest to you is P504 which is only 5 mins away. Best if you need a tow for fitting or cheapest for a taxi to get the parts. 9451 5100 - ask for Bruce or Dee, they will look after you. I was only there on Wednesday. Also for dealership that is closest (maybe best for express parts) is Northshore European which is at Brookvale - 10 mins away, 9905 6666 - ask for Steve in parts.

    GOOD LUCK!
