Customer Question
Few times it's broken...

Few times it's broken down saying oil pressure fault then won't start back once it's been towed back it then starts

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?

The vehicle is 2013 only the orange spanner comes on with it

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

It's 2013 Vauxhall vivaro

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

It's gone to the garage and they bypassed the fuel filter housing as there was bubbles in the diesel but still doing the same after it's been bypassed

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It did say battery low before that came up
