X there is coolant in the resivior. The engine warning light was already on because of a K&N air intake that causes it to stay on. The engine sounds ok turning over but I will do a compression check. The son was driving at the time said it just cut out and he rolled to a stop. I would have expected the oil pressure to come up when winding over and the light to go off unless there is as you say no compression or it is not pumping oil for some reason.

Hi thanksOk the fact there was no messages on the dash indicates a mechanical issue
Ie: no fuel pressure or possible timing issue /compression
I have changed a few fuel pumps on the st Variants
And the way you described the vehicle cutting out is more commonly down to no fuel delivaryKindest regards ***** *****
