Question about 2005 Renault 181
Ive just bought a clio off a friend, he broke down and the AA guy said problem was the oil pump. My friend pulled the car over as soon as he realised he had a problem, what i would like to know is will the engine need to be reconditioned or will i get away with just replacing the oil pump. Any advise would be gratefully recieved.
Usually it requires only replacing the oil pump, unless the engine has sustained damage.

Tips for a great answer:
White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.
It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.
