Textbook Problem

True or False? Oil pressure is determined by whether the pump is a gear type or rotor type and by oil clearances, the pumps pressure regulator valve, and oil viscosity.

To determine

Whether the given statement is True or False.

Explanation

Given information:

Oil pressure is determined by whether the pump is a gear type or rotor type and by oil clearances, the pump’s pressure regulator valve, and oil viscosity.

The main function of an oil pump is to circulate oil to different parts of the engine system in order to reduce friction, wear and tear, or cool and clean the components. The flow of oil depends on the diameter as well as the thickness of the pump. Compared to gear type pumps, rotor type pumps have higher volume of oil forced out of the pump outlet. The speed of the oil from the outlet of the oil pump depends on the engine speed and the volume of the pump.

When there is less oil clearance, it causes the reduction in speed of the oil causing a pressure loss...
