Evening all, glad to see you all made it home! Drift that squeeling sound may have been down to the fact that there wasn't a bleeding drop of oil in me engine :shock: Checked the dipstick when I got home and there wasn't a drop of oil on it. Anyway just shoved 4litres in and the oil pressure has come back up, so far there aren't any loud clanking noises guess that slick 50 engine treatment really does work :?:

Anyways just uploading me pics and some vids and should have them here shortly.

Yeh they looked really new. Guess they didn't think they could make it over the bump. Once you get to the lake thats really starting to get cut up. You can see where a few people have made a right old mess.

I know but I thought it can't be the oil because the light was only coming on when i went round sharp right handers and then it was going back up to 1/4. I was thinking that I might of whacked the sender unit when I did the starter on Friday night.

Wish I had been able to come along, looks like you had a great time. My Fronty is still sitting outside the house waiting for the rain to stop and a paper clip to be shoved in the appropriate place to try and read the fault code. Damn thing is intermittent is the code stored? or should I just disconnect the battery and see what happens next?
