Looking for some info. Driving down the motorway I noticed a load of smoke following me. I pulled over at the next junction luckily the one I wanted and only a few hundred meters away. Oil light came on and I stopped ASAP. Having a look I saw all the oil was coming from the front of the engine low down. I am not sure if a blown crank seal would do this or if there is a pipe from the oil cooler as most of the oil seemed to be dripping from outside of the timing case. Just wondering if anyone else has had such a sudden loss of oil and what the problem was?

If it's definitely coming from behind the timing covers, I'd expect a failed oil pressure relief valve...

If it's a classic, I've had the dipstick tube fracture where it goes into the sump and spew oil out, that's low down at the front, fortunately I was turning into my driveway when it happened so no damage.

Ive got a classic and over the last three years I have changed every flexible oil pipe on the hot side of the engine, the last one to go was the feed to the turbo. There is also a feed on the back of the alternator ,The best way is to pressure clean the engine and have a really good look.The oil cooler pipes are less likely as they are metal(I think) but still a possibility. Best of luck Pete.

Found out it was the balance shaft that had sheared off thus spewing oil through the seal Oh yeah forgot to say it is on a 06 Animal K47
