Oil Pump To Fit Most Motor Vehicles 


An oil pump in a cars engine or for that matter an internal combustion engine,circulates the engine oil under pressure to the bearings, the pistons and the camshaft of the engine and any other areas that need lubrication. This lubricates the bearings and allows for the use of higher-capacity fluid bearings and also assists in cooling the engine.

As well as its primary purpose for lubrication, pressurized oil has been increasingly used as a hydraulic fluid to power small actuators. One of the most notable uses is for hydraulic tappets in camshaft and valve actuation. Other common recent uses include the tensioner for a timing belt or variators for variable valve timing systems.

The types of pumps used varies. Gear pumps, trochoid pumps and vane pumps are all commonly used. Plunger pumps have been used in the past, but these are now only used rarely, for small engines.

To avoid the need for priming, the Oil pump is always mounted low-down, either submerged or around the level of the oil in the sump. A short pick-up pipe with a simple wire-mesh strainer reaches to the bottom of the sump. Always ensure that this strainer remains clean as in some model vehicles this strainer clogs and a lack of oil pressure in your engine will cause severe damage to your engine. 

The oil pump is an extremely important part and should not be overlooked as no oil pressure will cause no engine.
