So that was the last episode. Aww man. I had a feeling it was the last since they always do their specials at the end of a season.

Something in and around the chain guide area broke and in turn caused my vacuum pump to blow a hole and leaked oil everywhere. It made my brake booster lose power, so I had no brakes. There are shaving all along the engine bay too. Damage to the block. Apparently the noise I thought was the infamous lifter tick noise since winter, was a piece broken off by the chain guide haha FML.

Holy crap. First I've heard of that type of failure. The chain is pretty well encapsulated on N51s. Were the oil pump and chain affected?

Yeah, the chain is really well encapsulated which made us all scratch our head. The chain was flimsy and a piece that helps it along broke off. The pump had blown. Caused my brake power booster to fail also. I found another N51 so I think I'm just going to swap that in for now til I graduate in 1-2yrs at the most. :
