Evora 400 oil leak

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I've noticed an oil leak on my Evora 400.  It appears to be coming from the joint where the super charger is bolted to the top of the engine. I will be taking to B&C to have it checked out but I was wondering if anyone had experienced this before?

Not even heard of that one Freddie, big leak or more of a "weep" ?

I just had this occur with my car.  Lotus are replacing the supercharger and I should have it back in my hands tomorrow (Friday,  Aug 18).  

 

Symptoms: I saw a light misting of oil and small droplets on the lift gate. When I opened it to reveal the motor, I could see oil collecting at the base of the supercharger. I was told there have been some failures of seals on a certain production run.  My car was built in February,  2017 (as were many of the US cars) so if this is an issue it will presumably affect cars from around that time.   A benefit to Us owners is that the Edelbrocks are made here so turn around time was only three days.
