Sump Repair in Birmingham

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.

Birmingham is the second largest city in the United Kingdom and includes several neighbouring towns such as Solihull, Wolverhampton and the towns of the Black Country. The city’s reputation was forged as a powerhouse of the Industrial Revolution and led to Birmingham being known as the “workshop of the world”.

Despite the decline of manufacturing in the city since Victorian times several significant industrial plants remain, including Jaguar Cars in Castle Bromwich, , MG Rover (SAIC) at Longbridge and Cadburys Trebor Bassett in Bournville./span>

Although Birmingham’s industrial reputation has declined it has developed into a national commercial centre. Two of Britain’s big four banks, Lloyds in 1765 and the Midland Bank (now HSBC) in 1836 were founded in Birmingham.

Major canal side development at Brindleyplace which includes the National Indoor Arena and the National Sea Life Centre has regenerated the heart of the city, whilst major development of the Bullring Shopping Centre has made it the country’s busiest shopping centre.

Birmingham International Airport is located in the Borough of Solihull, which together with its excellent road and rail links makes Birmingham ideally situated in the heart of the country and has contributed to the International Convention Centre and the National Exhibition Centre accounting for 42% of the UK conference and exhibition trade.
