    New Oil Pan / Sump Gasket & Repairs in Hamilton

    What is the oil pan / sump gasket?

    Located underneath your engine, the oil pan or sump is a metal container that holds your engine’s oil. The oil pan gasket (also known as the sump gasket) is what seals the oil pan or sump, connecting it to the engine block and preventing oil leaks.

    A constant supply of oil is vital to the health of your engine. Oil lubricates the moving parts of your engine, preventing them from wearing and overheating. For this reason, it is important that the oil pan gasket does its job properly and keeps your engine sealed. Also, oil leaks on clean concrete can be very embarrassing, annoying and frustrating. 

     

    Symptoms of a damaged/leaking oil pan or sump gasket:

    A leaking oil pan gasket will display the following symptoms:

    Visible leaks – You may notice oil leaking from underneath your engine. This can be caused by leaks from various engine parts, including the engine sump or engine oil pan gasket.  

    Oil warning light – Some cars have a warning light which will illuminate if the oil is low. If this light is on, you should get your oil system inspected immediately. 

    Smoke coming from the engine – If the oil leaks and blows back onto the hot exhaust components, the oil will burn and cause smoke to come from beneath your car’s engine area.
