hey fellas just got back from the mechanic and found out the car had a s**t load of metal in the sump from when something to do with the timing chain broke.
anyway it got sucked up through the oil pump and i lost all my oil pressure
luckily it broke the pump before goin into the motor
just thought i might let the know incase it happens to anyone else.

i think he means a magnet on the end of the sump bolt so all metal pieces/shvings are caught on it and not sucked through the system, like the autos.

yep thats what i meant. Makes it easier to see how much metal your getting when you service it and also stops the s**t floating around. I didnt know autos had them though

Whats the full story on the auto then. I know the brass bits in the core of the radiator have a tendency to break off and collect in the transvestites filter. But this isn't good and I've forgotten what can happen next 8-) , how f**k useful am I :?
BTW I checked over this paragraph with my f**k up spell checker and it replaced "tranny" with transvestite :?

Oh i realise he was sticking the magent on the plug and replacing the plug :P But id get a plug with a magnet already in it, rather than just stick a magnet on the plug.... nevermind! :P
