First Line oil sumps

Date: 21-Aug-2018

Reflecting the poor surface quality of many of the UK’s road network, with its pot-holes and debris, as well as the huge increase of so-called ‘traffic calming’ speed humps and ramps, the number of vehicles entering the workshop with damage to their oil sumps caused not just by impacts, but from corrosion to exposed surfaces, has risen considerably. 

Vehicles that are particularly susceptible to such problems include the aluminium sump on the 1.9TDI engine, which is widely used across the VAG range, but also the iconic Fiat 500 and the ever-popular Vauxhall Corsa 1.3TD. As a result, First Line, one of the UK’s most prominent premium quality replacement parts suppliers has a range of 10 oils sumps that cater for these vehicles, as well as several other high demand applications.

Naturally, the range is manufactured from steel or aluminium, in accordance with the original equipment fitment, with the steel sumps benefiting from a powder coating to ensure extra corrosion resistance and longevity. Although all are fitted with the necessary sump plug, First Line also offers a range of seven sump plugs that can be bought separately and these include the popular patented plastic plug used for the VW Golf and the Audi A3/A4.
