Recently the oil pump failed on my Merva B without warning. I had no loss of oil pressure and no oil warning light on the dash. A garage has informed me I have to either get a replacement engine from a breakers or pay to have mine reconditioned. The engine had only just completed 50,000 miles. Are there any other owners who have encountered a similar costly experience.

Only thing that kills oil pumps is lack of the correct oil and regular changes.
Has it been fully serviced?
