Sump removal (What a bugger!)
« on: 10 July 2012, 10:32 »
Removed about 20 sump bolts including the 3 gearbox bolts and still couldnt remove sump!
Then got the tourch out and found 3 little gremlins on the gearbox side hidden! I couldnt get a 10mm on them so used a  long alan key.

Changed the pick up pipe.
Been putting the job off for a long time as I hate oil everywhere but its a simple easy job to do once found every sump bolt  :cool:

Rubbish pointless thread  :laugh:

Nah mate on the drive took about an hour and lots of f'ing and swearing because I couldnt find every bolt lmao
really not hard at all.

Jack the car up
empty oil
remove 3 gearbox bolts
remove all sump bolts
remove oil pick up pipe (2x10mm bolts)
Then reverse but makesure you use a good sump sealant and remove the sh!te left in the sump and old gasket.

Question for everyone, once the sump is removed whats the black plastic thing hanging above the pick up pipe?

Mine were that caked in crud, I didnt know you could even get a 10mm on, I was using just the allen key attachement on my socket set  :lipsrsealed:

But then asked on here and the rest is history  :tongue:

forgive my oblivious nature, what the hoohaa does the sump do and removing it from the AUM is a good idea?

it just carries excess oil losing this is a good weight saving tip and can increase performance by upto 10bhp so you then have 160bhp instead of 150  :wink: unless yours is mapped of course  :smiley:

ok kool, only reason i am asking is because my last car was a nissan premiera 2.0 sport and...lets face it, you can take a pair of bolt cutters to that car andit'll still run...badly...but it would still run. looks like this is on my to do list as well as the pipes then  :lipsrsealed:
