OIL PAN CONSTRUCTION


BHE011110040T02

• A thin oil pan made of steel has been adopted to lower the engine height.

• An oil baffle plate has been adopted inside the oil pan to stabilize engine oil slosh or aeration when the vehicle rolls and to prevent air suction in the oil strainer.

• An oil level switch has been adopted on the center of the oil pan. A low oil level warning light in the instrument cluster illuminates when the oil level is below the specified amount.

• An oil level switch inputs directly to the PCM. The PCM has an anti slosh circuit similar to the fuel level sensor. The PCM turns on the low oil level warning light.

• A silicon sealant with excellent sealing qualities has been adopted. Also, sealing slots have been adopted on the oil pan attachment side to improve sealing performance.
