Sump Repair in Aberdeen

Three Key Steps To Determine If You Can Repair A Sump Break Or Crack

A sump is usually found underneath an engine and it contains residual oil which it is not being circulated around the engine. 

There are three stages to assess whether you can repair a sump break or crack:

1) Can the sump break or crack be repaired?

Generally speaking, a small break or crack can be repaired. Larger breaks and cracks may need specialist preparation, metal filling or extra work to complete a repair. Before any work is undertaken on the part, it is best to take a digital photograph of the break or crack and send it to a specialist repair company for analysis.

They will be able to advise on the type of repair to be undertaken and the fees involved.

2) Is the sump break or crack accessible?

If the sump can be removed then this makes the repair process much easier. Removing the sump should be done carefully and in a way that retains all other fixtures and fittings (brackets, nuts, bolts etc).

If the sump cannot be removed, then there needs to be consideration into how much space surrounds the part as to whether an in situ repair could be undertaken. In situ repairs are possible on larger engines, but can be very difficult to perform on smaller engines.

3) Is it economical to repair the sump?

Budget is always an issue when deciding whether a sump can be repaired. If the part is easy to remove and readily available as a new part, it could be cheaper to fit a new part.

Aberdeen is Scotland’s third largest city, known as the Granite City and the Silver City with the Golden Sands; during the 18th to 20th centuries Aberdeen’s buildings incorporated locally quarried grey granite, whose mica deposits sparkle like silver, also the city has a long sandy coastline.

Since the discovery of North Sea oil in the 1970’s its other nickname has been the Oil Capitol of Europe.

Its traditional industries of fishing and ship building have been overtaken by the oil industry and Aberdeen’s seaport, with Aberdeen Heliport one of the busiest commercial heliports in the world. Aberdeen harbour is the largest in the north of Scotland with ferry routes to Orkney and Shetland.
