Mr Smith came to us with a BMW X6 which had suffered from engine failure. He’d only purchased the vehicle in April and was very disappointed to have experienced engine failure having owned the vehicle for less than a year.
Once we got down to work on the vehicle we found that both front driveshafts were broken and the oil sump on his original engine had a hole which was filled with sealant as a basic repair.
We believe that the previous owner had some sort of accident where he drove over something that damaged the vehicle from underneath. Very quickly the oil would have drained out of the engine starving it of oil and causing permanent damage if continued to be driven in this state.
