Oil Sumps for your car or van
Commonly known as ‘Oil Pans’ or ‘Engine Sumps’, oil sumps are a metal (most of the time) bowl-like part which holds the vehicles oil contents. It acts as a reservoir; the oil pump or ‘engine sump pump’ will pump the oil out the sump and into the engine to lubricate the moving parts. When the engine is off, the oil will recollect into the sump again. The importance of the oil sump is much greater than most people think. If your vehicle has an oil sump leak this will lead to less oil getting around the engine, which can have disastrous consequences for your vehicles engine. A leaking oil sump can be one of the most common causes for high oil consumption and/or low oil level.
Our car sumps are made from high quality Cast Iron, Steel and Aluminium.
Some sumps feature a gasket. All our sumps do not feature oil sump gaskets nor do we supply oil.
