About Oil Sump Gaskets

Oil is crucial for lubricating the moving components of the engine so they last longer and perform better while also functioning to act as a heat absorber, helping to keep the engine cool. The Vauxhall oil sump pan is an oil tray or tank located at the bottom of the engine. The oil sump pan stores oil, basically acting as a reservoir and collection/storage point for the returning oil once it has been pumped through the engine, before it goes off on its cycle again. The oil will pass through an oil filter to clean it from any impurities before it is pumped back through the engine.

Situated at the bottom of the engine, the oil sump is sealed with a Vauxhall oil sump gasket, which securely seals the oil sump to the engine, preventing leaks.

Often made of rubber or an asbestos mix, sandwiched between the oil sump and the engine, acting as a sealant, is the oil sump gasket.

A worn oil sump gasket will cause oil to leak will need to be replaced. An obvious sign that the oil sump gasket has a leak is oil on the ground beneath your car where it has been parked. The warning light should illuminate on the dashboard when the oil sump gasket has malfunctioned, indicating there is a fault. Driving a car that is low on oil can cause major damage to vital engine components. A leak in the oil sump gasket can cause the oil to leak at a speedy rate and should be attended to as soon as possible. It's always a good idea to confirm with your mechanic the exact fault so that you can make sure you buy the correct replacement part. When replacing this part, ensure you fit an oil sump gasket that's compatible with your car by buying a good quality Vauxhall oil sump gasket.

Vauxhall trivia

  • WWII got in the way of making cars, as Vauxhall started building the famous Churchill tank instead. It was designed and started rolling out of the factory in less than a year, and they made over 5,600 of them!
  • The Vauxhall Vectra was the last car they ever produced in Luton, and it went on to become one of their most poorly reviewed vehicles. Top Gear even put the '95 Vectra on their list of the worst cars of the last 20 years (Clarkson wouldn't even drive it!).
  • Alexander Wilson founded Vauxhall back in 1857 as a pump and marine engine manufacturer. It then moved onto building cranes before starting to finally make cars in 1903.
  • If you thought you were seeing mostly grey Vauxhalls on the road, your eyes aren't going funny. It's the most popular colour for Vauxhall cars.
  • The Vectra C is a very popular car, especially among the police force, and it's now common to see car buyers desperate to pick up an ex-police Vectra for cheap. It is estimated that Vauxhall manufactures as much as 70% of the UK police forces cars.
