I just purchased my Elise and am waiting for Lotus of SF to get the parts in for my oil line recall. I've been scared to drive it since I found out it wasnt done and have it parked. Is it safe to drive it limited miles until the recall is done or should I wait as it can blow the motor?

The risk reward ratio, I say no

Obviously not all the fittings fail, but if they do oil pressure goes to zero.

What is the wait time?

I have a complete OEM oil line recall kit new in Lotus Sealed bag. Will sell for $300 if that is all you need. (For single oil radiator only, not dual).

I thought it was safe. OOPS. New motor.
Oh crap! Ya.. I guess It's parked for now. Sigh put less than 200 miles on it so far. I guess I should postpone my stereo install on Monday as well. Thanks for the advice. 😰
