And you checked the oil level?

Do you have polar FIS? Does that show oil pressure? Can't remember.

Oil pickup?

you've probably got a blocked oil strainer in the sump

I mean normally it sounds a bit rattly but no where near what it sounded like today

Cam sensor error comes up when your oil strainer is blocked and there's no oil pumping into the cylinder head  :surprised:
If you have any tools?, try turn the crank over manually with socket and rachet.

@Peskyjones  if it's the chain it would still run and rattle very loud from what I've read and heard over the years. did you really turn the car off or did it cut out on you as ive had this with a car and tried to drive it off the motorway and the car was rattling like f*** in the end engine seized.

Could be the chain although you shouldn't have restarted her mate. that's the oil sign that tells you to stop the car meaning DO NOT attempt to start it again as its been discussed 100's of times as it's a failure and you should diagnose and rectify the fault before attempting to restart it which a lot of people fail to realise  :sad1: and by then it's too late and major damage is done.

Above in the first post you said quote 》》》 I was coming to a stopthe engine cut out! 

wont turn back on!

but now you're saying 》》》 . I then turned the car off and checked the oil level. Oil level was fine. Turned it back on and drove to the paddock and as I was coming to a stop it cut out!

Yeah I know :( The warning went when I turned it back on but still sounded like sh*t. Drove about 300 hundred yards before it cut out.

I came off the track when I saw the warning. I then turned the car off and checked the oil level. Oil level was fine. Turned it back on and drove to the paddock and as I was coming to a stop it cut out!

Waited for it to cool down, scanned it and got the p0011 cam shaft a code. Tried to turn it on and it was just ticking over, rpm hardly budging, maybe 2-300 rpm. Now in the tow truck :(

Don't try to start it with an oil pressure fault. Not the same car, but my sister's 1.6 FSI kept flashing up with the STOP oil pressure light. Had the oil changed and it's been fine since. That being said, her car had no fault codes.

100% blocked oil pick up pipe, Drain oil, take of sump and give it a good clean or replace strainer about £70 from dealers

then you just need oil and sealent  :happy2:

wont be anything else, esp if oil level fine and no oil in your coolant
