My engine decided to have a little bonfire earlier. Oil return split whilst having a nice drive in the sun. Thought the turbo had blown so pulled into a petrol station to have a little look where the smoke was coming from.........then noticed flames coming out of the bonnet vent. Ran inside to grab a fire extinguisher and put it out. Police and fire brigade turned up about 20 mins later. Engine bay is now full of powder from the fire extinguisher....not gonna be fun to clean.....been ripping the turbo off as the oil seals on the intake side are gone anyway so its off to be re-built. Got covered in the powder and am having some nasty rashes on my arms........all in all not a very good day lol........not too much damage though, few boost pipes turned to charcoal and a few wires to replace but managed to drive her home ok.......oh yeah and no one got hurt which is the most important thing!!
