oil pump snoise at 1000 rpm


oil pumps are in the sump and run in oil
there is no bearing as such as the shaft and gears are just a close fit in the cast housing which is lubricated by passing oil under pressure
as for a noise, if you can hear it there will be little or no oil pressure
However water pumps bearings regularly fail and you will hear it. mostly a sort of tinny rattling noise or a low grumble.

Good day: I don't accept that cold starting an engine at 2000 RPM is OK. Those immediate revs on a cold engine are wearing out parts that need oil lube and warm-engine clearances. Is there a simple way of limiting those cold-start revs to around 1200-1400 RPM? I don't need nor do I want instant warm-up .... I always give my cold engine 30 seconds or so to warm up. Thank you Happy owner of a 2002 Taurus SE with a 3.0 Vulcan engine


I have heard that Fords theory behind that is to supply maximum oil pressure to moving parts sooner. All the Ford products do this and the motors last well into the hundreds of thousand of miles. I wouldn't be to worried about it since there is no issue with it to my knowledge and there is no way to limit the cold start RPM's.

Cold start warm ups are a thing of the past. Better lubricants, engines, fuel injection and other computer controls have made start ups easier on the engine. 30 seconds is barely enough time to warm up anything and after a few seconds oil has already reached all of its intended lubricating points. That first few seconds is the hardest on the engine. Regardless of how any RPM's it is turning.
