FAI Launches Oil Sump Pan Range

FAI has introduced an initial range of 50 sump pans which include the sump plug and relevant gasket for installation. Oil sump pans are another product that adds to our already successful bottom engine repair modules like gaskets, main bearings, oil pumps, torsional vibration dampers and oil pump chain kits. Our sump pans are made to OE specifications because of the stresses of driving conditions like traffic calming measures, pot holes and road contaminants. All our sumps are leak and pressure tested to ensure long life and hassle free fitting, we offer both aluminum and steel versions which cover a wide range of popular applications.

Each of our Oil Sump Pans are laser etched with the FAI logo so you can rest assured that the product you have is of the highest quality and has been fully tested to ensure optimum performance.

Our sump pans can be accessed through MAM, FAI web catalogue and will be live on the TECAlliance platform shortly. We currently cover over 22 vehicle brands and 2500 individual applications.

Oil Sump pans hold the engine oil that is essential for the lubrication of all the internal engine parts. A sump pan needs to be maintained to prevent oil loss which can result in catastrophic engine failure.

There are any number of reasons for the sump pan to fail but most commonly it is due to damage or corrosion. Pot holes and speed bumps can easily rupture the pan causing oil loss, where corrosion and leaking gaskets can produce slower oil loss but the result is the same.The primary function of oil in the engine is exactly what you'd expect: It keeps things moving. No oil and you have the inevitable seized engine.

There are advantages to keeping the engine lubricated with oil. There's less friction, which means the engine has to make less of an effort to keep chugging along. That in turn means it can skate along on less fuel and run at a lower temperature. And all of this means less wear and tear on the moving engine parts. Keeping clean oil in the system means your engine is happy.To download the product information leaflet CLICK HERE.
