What additional factors could affect oil pump replacement?

With so many components dependent on a healthy flow of clean oil to keep them in tip-top working order, a faulty or broken oil pump could be responsible for damaging other—important and expensive—components.

A faulty oil pump can lead to early damage of bearings, pistons, and other moving parts reliant on its efficient operation.

When you replace your oil pump, you’ll need to replace the oil filter and the oil in the system.

Can I carry out an oil pump replacement myself?

How do you know if you have a bad oil pump?

  • Low oil pressure – indicated by a warning light illuminating on your dashboard.
  • Increased engine running temperatures.
  • Tapping or pinging noises coming from the engine.

Can you drive a car with a bad oil pump?

You should avoid driving with a faulty oil pump at all costs. Without the oil moving around your car’s oil circuit, it could soon overheat, and in extreme cases, seize the engine. It’s not worth risking such expensive damage when a little due care and attention can rectify the issue far more cheaply.

How often does an oil pump need replacing?

A typical oil pump should last between 60k and 70k miles of driving. However, some pumps will last the life of the vehicle.

What causes oil pump failure in a car?

Typically, it’s wear and tear over time that runs your oil pump into the ground. However, low oil levels can accelerate the wear, as can failure to regularly replace the oil in your system—dirt and debris won’t just wear your engine’s components; they’ll wear your oil pump too.

What does an oil pump do in a car?

The oil pump circulates oil under pressure around your car’s moving parts through the oil circuit. It lubricates bearings, pistons, and the camshaft where consistent, fluid movement is essential.

If you think your oil pump might need replacing, or if there’s anything else causing concern under the bonnet, why not let one of our experts take a look and identify the problem for you? We’re always ready and waiting to help.
