My engine seized some time ago. Took it to a reputable place for it to be reconditioned. During the strip down they didn't really diagnose the cause, however, I told them I had been using fully synthetic oil, they said that's the probable cause. A few grand later I pick car up, running great, sweet, smooth and quiet. Happy!! Within 20 miles of picking car up, the oil light comes on and engine seized. I call the engineers who did the job and they promptly come and tailor the car away. Just received a call from them stating its not their fault, the problem comes from a faulty dizzy which drives the internal oil pump. They didn't supply the dizzy, they jusy refitted the original dizzy. Question is, can a faulty dizzy cause my engine to seize? I'm not naming the engineers as they did a good job. I just need to know if a dizzy can stop the oil pump from working, making the oil light come on then eventually seizing the engine. Advice please, I'm going to be out of pocket tonns ere. 1.6 pinto engine.
