Oil pumps are one of the most crucial parts within the engine. The pump is responsible for distributing the oil, which serves as a lubricant, throughout the engine, making it work correctly.
There are some characteristics of this spare part to take into account: flow capacity (this is the amount of oil it can deliver in a period of time. It depends on the speed of the oil pump, the rotor design and the oil pressure) and the maximum pressure (this is the pressure it is able to generate to supply oil to the other engine parts).
It is essential that an engine is well lubricated with the correct oil at the correct pressure and temperature. When an engine does not have the oil it should or the pump is not working properly, problems begin to appear that can have serious consequences. The lack of lubrication increases the friction between the different parts of the engine causing them to be damaged and stop performing their function optimally. Many of the repairs carried out by engine rectifiers come from incorrect engine lubrication, either due to a lack of pressure in said oil, poor maintenance or even the use of an oil that should not be used.
At Automoción Oryx Parts we have oil pumps adapted to passenger vehicles that will ensure correct engine lubrication, providing it with a longer useful life, avoiding the already well-known seizing.
