i had a new cambelt and water pump kit fitted and when i got home i the oil and water, water needed to be topped up, oil was fine.
so i drove it for the day on oand off prob about 6miles in total.
then the car struggled to accelerate on my next journey so i pulled over and there was no oil in the car..but no warning lights came on.
i turned the engine off and filled the car with 1litre of oil and left it for 10mins to settle.

drove about 4miles car seemed fine a little sluggish when acclerating past 30mph.

im really worried i have ruined my engine. there are no loud noises coming from the engine that i can seems a little louder than usual but maybe because im imagining it is?

please any help/advise would be so appreciated!!!

Check to make sure your oil cap is on and make sure your oil filter is on. let it sit in a driveway or parking spot put oil in it and let it run for a while look underneath to see if there are oil spills, then contact your local mechanic.

I just bought a 03 Renault Megane 1.6 (Petrol) and after 2 weeks the car developed a rattling sound from the engine bay. I had my car checked and the mechanic suspects the waterpump needs replacing along...

He's just trying to upsell. The pump should have been replaced with the belt last month. I always recommend that if one goes the other should be replaced, for this very reason. Unless the water pump trashed the belt I wouldn't put the timing kit back in it. One month old... There is nothing wrong with them. But again the pump could have ate the belt, check it, if it is chewed up or missing teeth replace the belt only. And he's just giving you a line of ----, for the alignment part.
