Oil sump
« on: 29 October 2018, 14:03:40 »

Are the oil sumps the same on all V6 models ??? I've found this one on the bay of fleas but want to ensure it fits the 3.2 V6     :)

According to the parts lists, on all V6 models of the Omega B (2.5,2.6,3.0 and 3.2), the lower sump pan is the same part no.
Currently 91584216, but that has previously replaced 90410838, 90501404, 90529968 and 90572705.
But in answer to your question - yes.

Thanks to all .. purchased this :) 

Having crawled under the car this afternoon and examined the corroded area I have a strong worry about it actually becoming a full leak and dumping all the oil out at once ... that wouldn't do the engine much good at all ...... especially if on the motorway with the tin tent on the back which is due to happen on 9th November .. so going for this to change it ASAP.

Easy job to do Nige. IIRC it's the grey goo that's used to seal/glue it to the main ally sump.

Thanks for that ... what is the "correct" name for "grey goo" !!  :)  I wonder what skurrays (or whoever they are now) will say if I ask for a tube of "grey goo" !!!

Yes I used the Grey Goo when I changed mine, but only because I had loads left from changing the oil cooler plate. 

Hylomar Blue or similar will do the job just as well and will be a lot cheaper from your closest car accessory shop.  :y

Your local Loctite/Wurth/Kent/whatever stockist will sell you their equivalent.


I've never had any problem with using clear silicone in similar places, but I could hear the multiple sharp intake of breath as I typed this ;D
