Hi everybody. In Morgans bay and as we left oil light came on and wasn't noticed immediately

Oil filter had blown off and although we managed to get a new filter the engine now makes some noise around 2k regs when accelerating. A local mechanic has referred us to Highway motors in EL for it to get looked at. He said we should be able to drive there as he can't work on it as may need major repair.

Just thinking about options. Obviously not keen to k
get car fixed far from home (Hermanus) in case of issues later.

Is sending the car by shared truck a possibility or if someone can refer a good and reasonable mechanic that would be appreciated. Thanks
