Oil & Water Pumps
We have access to a range of water pumps & oil pumps. We recommend that the oil pump is changed when an engine is rebuilt after an engine failure. This is to ensure that no debris from the failure has worked its way into the pump. An oil pump failure will cause substantial damage to your engine. Water pump failure may be one of the reasons your engine has overheated and caused the gasket to fail. We can source a range pumps on a next day basis
Oil pumps are used to ensure that oil is circulated around the entire engine. A failing or failed oil pump can cause oil starvation to vital engine components causing them to wear prematurely or even cease. We recommend a new oil pump is fitted if there has been an engine failure as the pump may have small metal particles that can damage the pump.
Water pumps ensure that coolant is pumped around the engine through the cooling channels, pipes and radiator. The coolant transfers heat from the engine block and cylinder head into the radiator where it is cooled by the cooling fan and/or the air hitting the front of the vehicle when it is in motion. If the pump fails, this water does not circulate and boils away almost instantly causing the engine to cease and causing engine damage. We recommend that the pump is changed when the timing belt or chain is replaced.
