slight problem. Coming down the M40 last night, my engine decided to let go! I lost boost pressure then lost all power to accelerate resulting in me pulling in to the local services to wait for the AA. On lifting the bonnet my dipstick was on top of the engine and oil was all over the drivers side suspension strut.

does anyone know what has happened? I`ve only had my GTS five days!!!

have you blown the engine or just got a blockage in your oil breather system.

hi,i agree with sarky your oil ways must have been pressurised to blow the dip stick out and was there any noise when this happened other than the dip stick hitting the bonnet!

very common Rs Turbo symptom, as above , blocked oil pipes creating excessive pressure to blow the dip stick out.

could be, really need to get the car looked at. Its hard to provide an accurate diagnostic through a forum.

The car was detonating top end, but the boost was running at standard when she blew.
