Hello everyoneVery new here and joining up on sad news. I have had my Note from new 07 plate and with only 36,000 miles on the clock the engine has siezed. Sadly the sump drain plug came out on the motorway and oil flooded out in seconds. 2 minutes later engine gone. :(((((((((((

im on the lookout for a new or second engine. Sadly the car has been serviced regularly by the garage it was bought from but the last service was over 14 months ago but in all my cars and years of driving i have never had a sump plug fall out.

anyways in a fight with my garage for now, no doubt it will end in their favour.

14 months is a bit of a stretch for a claim against the garage, but I hope you win something.


Sump plugs can be a bu**er to get out, never mind dropping out.


What engine are you after, would it be a complete or a short engine. Have you inspected the damage on yours.

If the damage isn't too severe, you could get it rebuild maybe. At least, that way it's mostly original.

There's a few diesel & petrol engines on ebay from £299(petrol) - £850(diesel).
