    Default That's That for Another Year.

    She just flew through the MOT without a single problem. They seemed to give it an extra good going over too, as if they were thinking "come on, it's a five year old Vectra, there has to be something wrong".

    I did notice a tiny oil leak at the front of the engine when I last did a service so I've booked her in for a new oil pressure sensor (£30 fitted), which looks to be the cause. I hope it is otherwise it's either the crank shaft seal or a cam seal, which would not be so cheap to sort.

    Oh, and I got a fiver off the MOT too, 12 month ticket for £49 = one happy Veccy owner.

    No, probably not serious (he says with crossed fingers), I've not noticed any oil on the drive, etc. but for £30 I can at least rule out one of the possible causes and rest easy if it does fix it, or start to really worry if it doesn't.
