Ford Transit oil sump (oil pan)

The Ford Transit oil sump is an engine component. Oil pans are made of sheet steel or aluminium and are bolted to the engine block. The oil sump is a kind of storage for the engine oil. The oil pump draws in the engine oil via a suction port and then distributes it through the engine's lubrication system. Replacing the oil sump in the Ford Transit MK3, MK5, MK6, MK7 and MK8 is a difficult task for an amateur. We recommend replacing this engine component at a specialised automotive workshop. Apart from the difficulty of replacing the oil sump, an additional risk is the contact with overworked engine oil, which is harmful to health. Oil sump damage in the Ford Transit is usually mechanical in nature. The oil pan is located in the lower part of the engine and is therefore exposed to damage caused by driving over a pothole or hitting a kerb. The oil sump for a Ford Transit can also be damaged by twisting the thread for draining the engine oil.

Damaged oil sump for a ford transit - can you drive?

If there is a crack in the oil sump, then there should be an engine oil leak. A damaged or broken oil sump seal has a similar effect. If your Ford Transit has leaked oil, then you cannot continue driving. Stop and have the van towed to a workshop. Continuing to drive, even for a while, can lead to engine seizure and serious damage to your vehicle. If there is a depression in the oil sump without an oil leak then continuing to drive is theoretically possible.
