If you crank breather pipes (PCV) are rotten, then you should replace then asap as will eventually lead to oil leak and poor performance.

You're dealer is trying to save your life....the crankcase breather pipes are the lifeblood of the engine, rotten pipes will indeed cause oil starvation and an engine seizure. Lets see now.....breather pipes £60 plus some labour, or a min of £1500 plus shed loads of labour for a short engine...:eek: bit of a no brainer really. Do a search on PCV and see what horror stories you come up with..

The guys are right, please get it sorted very quickly, you might want to get the sump dropped and cleaned out too............I have a £2500 invoice if you want some proof :eek:
