Oil Pump

We have 689 Items for Oil Pump In-stock.

Moving metal parts in your engine generate high temperatures in a hurry. So even if they're the best in terms of quality, that doesn't mean they're invulnerable to extreme heat. To ensure they stay in tip-top shape, they need to be given a regular supply of oil. By having them lubricated, you're assured that they won't deteriorate quickly. Now to ensure they get the supply they need on a regular basis, your vehicle needs to be equipped with an Oil Pump. This pump is found at the bottom of the oil pan and uses pressure to deliver the oil. Oil is sent to your engine's different parts to keep them lubricated. By doing this, it's able to lower the temperature inside the cabin and prevent heat from wearing them out quickly. Also once properly lubricated, these parts would be able to operate smoothly because there's less resistance and friction. Not only will you get to enjoy the benefits of having a vehicle that performs well, you also get to enjoy longer service life from its parts. Although it's usually made from heavy-duty materials, the pump also needs maintenance to keep it in top form. One simple way of taking care of it is by having your oil change in regular intervals. That way, you're assured that only clean oil is pumped into your engine and its components. The Oil Pump helps disperse engine heat by providing a steady flow of oil. So if you need one today, be sure to get it only here at Auto Parts Warehouse.

Choosing the Right Oil Pump for Your Vehicle

No matter how much oil you have stored in your oil reservoir and no matter how good the quality of that oil, it won't do your vehicle engine any good if such oil is unable to reach the engine's various moving parts. In short, the oil will be useless if your car's oil pump is malfunctioning.

What is an oil pump?

The pump is the mechanism that creates pressure in order to drive oil into the nooks and crannies in the engine, lubricating metal engine parts as they work and carrying heat away from the combustion area. In such manner, the pump is able to protect the engine from damage caused by heat and friction.

What types of pump are available today?

If you are in the market in search of a new oil pump, you'll find that there are different types in use today. The most common are:

  • Rotary pump. This pump is composed of two rotors: an inner and an outer rotor that mesh against each other. Oil flows through the pockets between the two rotors, in such a way that the oil is squeezed and then forced out into the engine under pressure.
  • Gear pump. Similar to the rotary pump, this type of pump also works using two components, these time gears. They mesh against each other, and it is the action of their teeth coming together that draws oil and then drives it out under pressure.

Despite the differences in their technical composition, both types of pump achieve the same purpose. So how do you find the right pump for your ride? If you're looking at price and getting savings, you can choose from these:

  • New oil pump. As the name implies, this comes brand new right out of the box. It might be costly (price ranges from a little below a hundred bucks to almost a couple of hundred), but you get complete warranty and brand new parts.
  • Remanufactured oil pump. This kind of pump is usually created out of a used and damaged pump. The damaged component is removed and replaced, then the pump is rebuilt to like-new condition-ready for use again. It is generally cheaper than a new pump.
  • Salvaged oil pump. This is a second-hand pump, used but still in good condition. You'll find this in a car junkyard, or from a friend who might be doing an upgrade and discarding his old but still usable pump.

With all these choices available, you're sure to find an oil pump that will match your need and your budget.

Replacing a Damaged Oil Pump

Engine overheating is both costly and dangerous; it can lead to engine destruction and can render your vehicle immobile. There are many reasons your car engine can overheat, among which is damage to your vehicle oil pump. Good thing is, the pump is not that challenging to replace. Here, we'll show you how to replace the pump when damaged so that you can prevent overheating of your engine.

Difficulty Level: Moderate

You'll Need:

  1. Replacement pump
  2. Replacement oil pan gasket
  3. Crescent wrench
  4. Oil drain pan
  5. Drive ratchet set
  6. Gasket scraper tool
  7. Rags
  8. Funnel
  9. Safety goggles
  10. Latex gloves

Instructions:

Step 1: Park your vehicle on a flat surface and engage the parking brake. You can also place something behind the wheels to keep them from rolling while you are working.

Step 2: Place an oil drain pan under the engine. Using a crescent wrench, remove the oil drain plug and allow the oil to drain into the pan. Put the plug back in place.

Step 3: With a drive socket and ratchet, unbolt the oil pan from the engine block and take it off to gain access to the oil pump.

Step 4: Remove the oil pan gasket; you can do this using a gasket scraper tool. Clean the mounting surface of the engine block to remove any gasket material left over it.

Step 5: Using the drive ratchet, unbolt the pump and take it off. Then, mount the new pump in place. Be sure to torque the bolts off correctly (the correct torque level ranges from 14 to 21 foot pounds).

Step 6: Mount a new gasket over the pan and reinstall it in place.

Step 7: Using a funnel, pour new oil into the engine. Then, replace and tighten the oil reservoir cap.

After all these, you can run the engine and check the engine oil pressure to ensure that it's correct.
