Help with repairing sump.

I have some scabs underneath the sump on my terrano and I am loosing quite a bit of oil, I have priced one up from Nissan and its 's also it will be a big job to fit because one side of the axle will have to be moved.

Is there some sort of metal filler I could use and if so which make or brand would be best thanks.

Possible solution

Have you ever used JB Weld? It might work.

According to Honest John its a 4.5 hour job, remove diff/axle/carrier.

No experience of JB Weld, but have used Chemical Metal on an old Yammie petrol tank which lasted for a few years.

+1 for chemical metal, I've used it to repair a suzi motorbike gearbox casing which held good, but I've not seen this stuff in the shops for a while, might be worth calling a few scrappiies.


Failing that mix some wood shavings with STP, that'll clog the crack from the inside

JB weld will probably work. It's better than Chemical Metal- but you need to get it as clean as you would clean Hypalon for a tube patch and have abraded bare metal for it to attach to. Aluminium Oxide paper will do it.

Run the car to temperature then pull the sump plug. Only trouble with blisters on the sump is potentially how big the hole can be. Try a wire brush head attachment on a drill to take worst off, then down to oxide paper to key. Also look at repainting sump afterwards, using zinc primer.

I'd try the JB stuff. Just watched a youtube promo.

Personally I would stump up the cash and get it done.
