Best Answer

The oil pump pulls oil up from the bottom of the oil pan and pumps it through the passages in the engine to the bearings and hydraulic lifters (if any). The tube that goes from the bottom of the oil pump into the oil pan is covered with a screen to keep out any potential large "chunks" of anything that got into the engine. The screen is called a sump screen and can usually be cleaned and re-used when the pump is replaced, provided that the screen is still in good shape.
