Hello /o/. I have a volkswagen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Gol), and the oil light in the panel just turned red. The engine is not overheating (it never passes the 90º celcius mark), but the mechanic said i'll probably have to replace the oil pump and that i should avoid using the car until then. I left the car so the problem could be investigated. I did a research and the price range for the service is affordable, but i'm worried about the seriousness of it.
I know the engine was probably damaged, but what is the prognosis? Should i buy a new car after this (last resort only)? The possibilities are simple or complex?
Pic related, my car looks exactly like this.

I'm currently converting a 1991 SW20 MR2 to all wheel drive, using a cosworth MT75 gearbox, and running the diff upside down.
The engine I'll be using a nissan VQ35, which I will be destroking to 2litres for rally regulations, and will be using a single IHI Turbine.
I'm currently cutting the transmission tunnel, and my angle grinders a peice of shit, does anyone have any tips here? I've got through 6 of these fucking wafer thin discs so far, all they do is snap into peices.
>Pic related, its the tunnel I'm cutting out the car. Its where the fuel tank would normally be but I'll be running one single carbon fibre fuel cell in the passenger footwell.

So my friend owns a '94 BMW 318 (e36), and we've both been wondering what the fuck this little shit does.
We're pretty sure the "E" is economy, "S" is sport, but we have no idea what this does.
If we put it in "m", and floor it at like 10 MPH, it just accelerates slow as all hell, probably in like 3rd gear.
Anyone know? Danke in advance! (yes i tried googling it, although i probably suck at that)
