On Friday I had to have my P reg sporty recovered to a garage, after investigation they've decided the engine had seized up due to lack of oil! There's been no visable oil leaks nor were there any oil warning lights coming on to show its been running low, on checking it (the last time about 5 weeks ago, which is I no is a bit naughty) it was fine!
So now I'm slightly confused, I've only had it about 4 months, brought it from a local garage with a 12 MOT, they'd had it sitting on there forecourt for about 2 months before I discovered it!
I've been quoted about £1,200 from the garage to repair the engine damage.
I'm obviously slightly confused as to whats been going on and can't really understand how its got through so much oil since last checked, also i was always under the impression once seized an engine wouldn't start again, mine's running with a very loud knocking sound!
I don't know if anyone can shed any light on it or give some advice on what to do from here, is it possible to sell it as it stands!
Confused 1st time sporty owner!
