FAI has introduced a range of high quality sump pans which include the sump plug and relevant gasket for installation. Oil sump pans are another product that adds to FAI’s existing bottom engine repair modules like gaskets, main bearings, oil pumps, torsional vibration dampers and oil pump chain kits.
The FAI sump pans are made to OE specification, something that is vital due to the stresses of current driving conditions such as traffic calming measures, pot holes and road contaminants. The latest product range is subjected to leak and pressure testing to ensure long life, hassle free fitting and peace of mind.
The range offers both aluminium and steel versions, covering a wide range of popular vehicles, consisting of 22 vehicle brands and 2500 individual applications. Each of the FAI 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.
The FAI sump pans can be accessed through MAM, FAI web catalogue and will be live on the TECAlliance platforms shortly.
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 caused by the increasing number of pot holes and speed bumps. Both of which can easily rupture the pan causing oil loss. Corrosion and leaking gaskets are another common issue and can produce slower oil loss but the same potentially catastrophic result. 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.
