2010 ve sv6 s2
2010 s2 sv6 on way to gym this morn and hear a ticking noise, followed closely by complete loss of power, car is due for 75k service in about 2000 ks , the oil level was very low , i find this odd as i checked it last week and all was fine , noticed no warning lights or anything , is this common on sv6 s2s ? the racq guy said its poked as far as he can tell , will my warranty cover me for this ? log book servicing is upto date, iv had it towed to holden for them to inspect on monday.
not a bloody great way to start my weekend :realangry

I would have pour some oil in it before it arrived at Holden, just to rule out the you failed to check the oil comments by the dealer

If you do that you would have to use old oil, a blind mechanic can tell the difference between new oil and oil that had done 13000km and they may also get it sent off and tested.
