I've holed my sump. The only silver lining is that I can see everywhere I've driven as the car is leaving a trail. I managed to get a container underneath it and have caught around 1 litre of oil in it so far (been parked about half an hour).
It got me wondering, assuming I was in the middle of nowhere (which I'm not) what options would I have for temporarily sealing the sump for long enough to drive the car a short distance?
The car in question is a 2003 (04 MY) Bora (Mk4 Jetta) diesel so has an alloy sump. (I should add that in this instance I'll be towing it home this evening rather than risk starting the engine again).
