Please help. I have just looked below my car, having heeded the low oil pressure warning, and found a large pool of oil. I jacked it up and the oil is steadily dripping out a little hole in the sump (at quite a rate! Just poured about 3 litres in to get it over minimum mark on dipstick). Now the oil has cooled down I have managed to block the whole - with chewing gum as it is all I could think off.

I have just submitted requests for quotes to various breakers but also came across this link: http://www.oilsumps.co.uk/car-parts/Peugeot/407.aspx which is a new sump for £70 delivered. Is this good?

My MAIN worry though is fitting the sump: is this something that someone like me (with very little mechanical knowledge but an ability to follow instructions well!) could realistically think about tackling or should I stay clear ad take into a garage?

My parents sump on their Saab 9-5 got a hole and the garage had to completely lift the engine out to replace it! So I am hoping Peugeots are simpler!

Any advise is much welcome - tomorrow will be spent spreading gravel on our very rough driveway to fill in some of the potholes that have caused this!!

Did you ever get this fixed.
You can get high temperature epoxy or chemical metal to block the hole.
I used chemical metal years ago to block a big rusted hole in a washing machine and never had a problem with it again.
RS(Radio Spares) used to sell it, came in two little different coloured pots.
