Water & Oil Pumps
We have a huge range of Oil Pumps & Water pumps in stock. Our water pumps are usually supplied within Timing Belt Kits in Dayco but can be arranged to order separately from other brands like First Line or Febi Bilstein. Our oil pumps are Autopumps International which we have supplied to the motor trade for over 15 years. We keep oil & water pumps for all types of cars & light commercial vehicles.
Dayco is the world's leading supplier of belts, tensioners & water pumps. They manufacture water pumps & belt kits for Vehicle manufacturers (OEM) and the aftermarket. Their quality and testing are well above standard meaning you can fit Dayco products with peace of mind.
Water pumps are generally driven by the cam belt or timing chain. Failure of the water pump or its bearings can cause the pump to seize. This can consequently damage the belt or chain, resulting in catastrophic engine failure.
The water pump distributes cooling fluid around the engine. If there is a leak or the engine does not have sufficient water in the system, the pump will wear prematurely.
Why does my engine need an Water Pump?
Your engine needs a water pump to circulate the coolant through the engine's cooling system, which helps regulate the engine's temperature and prevent it from overheating.
When your engine runs, it generates a significant amount of heat that can damage the engine if it's not managed properly. The cooling system in your engine is designed to regulate the engine's temperature by circulating coolant through the engine and then releasing the heat to the outside air through the radiator.
The water pump is a critical component of the cooling system, as it's responsible for moving the coolant through the engine and the rest of the cooling system. The water pump is typically driven by a belt or a chain connected to the engine's crankshaft, which allows it to circulate the coolant even when the engine is running at high speeds.
Without a water pump, the coolant in your engine would not be able to circulate effectively, leading to engine overheating and potentially causing severe damage to the engine components. Therefore, it's essential to ensure that your water pump is in good working condition to prevent engine overheating and prolong the life of your engine.
We have been supplying oil pumps by Autopumps International for over 15 years. Their reliability, quality and product range are well above standard.
A failing oil pump can result in a loss of oil pressure. The general approximate rule is 10 psi for every 1000rpm. Low oil pressure can mean that parts of the engine will not be sufficiently lubricated causing "metal-on-metal" friction which will consequently lead to engine failure or engine seizure. Oil pumps are generally driven by a gear train connected to the crankshaft.
Why does my engine need an Oil Pump?
The oil pump in an engine is a crucial component that helps to ensure proper lubrication of the engine's moving parts. As the engine runs, the oil pump circulates oil throughout the engine, which lubricates the various components such as the bearings, pistons, and camshafts.
Without an oil pump, the engine's moving parts would not receive adequate lubrication, which could lead to increased friction, heat buildup, and premature wear and tear. Over time, this could cause significant damage to the engine, leading to decreased performance, reduced fuel efficiency, and potentially costly repairs.
Additionally, the oil pump helps to regulate the oil pressure within the engine. This ensures that oil is delivered to the necessary parts of the engine at the correct pressure, which further helps to prevent damage and wear over time.
Overall, the oil pump is a critical component of any engine, and its proper functioning is essential for the engine's longevity and performance.
