Oil Pump To Fit Most Motor Vehicles
OPN001 Nissan Oil Pump
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.
To avoid the need for priming, the 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 severe damage to your engine.
