When you select genuine products, you can rely on the high quality and effectiveness of the product without having to guess if it will work with your vehicle. Protecting your investment is important and choosing the right parts can be challenging. So don’t waste another minute searching for a replacement that might work; stick with what you know and get the same parts and accessories the dealership uses.
The oil pump is responsible for pumping oil into the engine faster than the engine can use the oil. This creates a constant pressure as the oil is pushed through oil passages. The oil passages use targeted outlets to send oil to precise locations which need protection. Oil is less of a lubricant, and more of a barrier, as it prevents metal contact between internal engine components. When that barrier is weak, metal contact will occur at an increasing rate, relative to the rate of oil pressure degradation.
