In order for the oil in your car to get to where it needs to go, it will need the right amount of pressure. There are a number of different systems and parts on a car that help to pump the oil to the appropriate places. The oil pump is among the most important of these parts. The oil pump cover gasket is also important due to the fact that it keeps the oil that is in the pump from escaping. Every time that the car is started, the oil pump and the oil pump cover gasket will have to work to ensure the fluids get to the internal parts of your engine as intended.

The gaskets that are on your car are either made of rubber, paper or even cork. The oil pump cover gasket is generally made of a thick and durable grade of paper. The constant expanding and contracting that this gasket does over time will eventually lead to it tearing. The last thing that you want to do is to leave this gasket damaged due to the trouble that it can cause you down the line. Having oil leaking from this gasket can lead to a lack of lubrication for the internal parts of your engine. This will cause a lot of friction and usually a lot of damage.

When the warning signs of a bad oil pump cover gasket start to surface, it is your job to make sure the appropriate repairs are performed. The best way to get the oil pump cover gasket replaced quickly is by finding professionals in your area to handle it. Usually, there will be no shortage of options, which is why you will have to do some research.

When your oil pump cover gasket is in need of repair or replacement, here are some of the things you will notice:

  • There is oil leaking from around the timing cover
  • Visible oil leaks around the intake manifold
  • The Low Oil Light is on

By allowing a professionals to handle this type of repair, it will be easy for you to get your car back on the road in a hurry. Attempting to change your bad oil pump cover gasket alone may end in disaster.
