Author Topic:   Oil pan
posted January 17, 2004 10:33 AM
Just bought a new oil pan with a side kick out and trap doors. I have a question about the trap doors. Arent they supposed to trap the oil in the left side of the pan. And the pick up be in that area. The way this pan is set up the traps dump all the oil into the center. Wont we run out of oil going through the the turns? Or am I just over thinking this?

If it's a "left turn" pan, the pick-up should be over in the passenger side corner of the pan. The trap door's should have the oil trapped from the drivers side of the pump (just off center in the pan) to the passenger side of the pan.
