    Hi ya all. just noticed i've got a crack in my sump pan, which is slightly leaking oil out. I've been on euro car parts and they do 2 types of sump pan. One has a sensor hole in it, the other doesnt. the difference in price goes from 95 qiud to 45 quid. Ive got a 2001 cupra AUQ engine. does anyone know which one i need. cheers.

    You could always jack the car up and have a look :)

    I think it's only LCR's that have the oil temperature/level sensor in the bottom of the sump, but it isn't difficult to spot. What car do you have?

    Yeh so long as theres no hole and its not cracked in half, remove it, clean it and take it somwhere that does aluiminum welding and get it welded up, girnd excess off and refit.
