SOURCE: how do you replace an oil pump for a 93 chevy

A bad oil pump will show low oil pressure and your lifters will start chattering. It is rare that ann oil pump failsyet possible.The oil pump is in the oil pan and will require the pan to come down. The pan can be remove in frame, you just have to turn the crank by hand to get the crank journal out of the way at a certain point. Yhe oil pump is the unit the pick up tube and screen are attached and it comes down by removing two bolts.The pick up tube is the hard part. Last I kmew they are pressed in and hard to separate from the pump, but it can be done. Be careful not to rotate the tube or it will be loose on install, not good.. If you have a oropane torch heat up the pump, don't over heat. Just enough fotr the tube to dlip out. Do not forget to put the distributor drive rod back in if it came out wiyh the pump. Pull the distributor so you don't fight thre drive slot alignment. Note rotor position and dirtibutor body position. Mark if necessary the orientation for assembly. Good Luck. Suggestion. Have the oil pressure ck'd and verified befor siassemblin. Put a gauge in place of sending uni for a direct reading. It's a lot of work to pull the pump. Good Luck, -Ned-

SOURCE: 1996 cavalier bad oil leak when running

Overfilled is not good but it would have to be very high to cause leak,There are numerous places in rear of engine that could be leaking.could be leaking from rear of intake,the oilpump drive o ring,but most likly leaking from rear main seal that seals at the rear of the crankshaft and the transmission will need to come out to access this seal. you will need to have the oil leak diagnosed to locate the exact spot.

SOURCE: replace fuel pump on a 2001 chevy cavalier

First, if your car still runs, pull the fuel pump relay, and start your car, letting it run until it dies. This will depressurize the fuel system. Then you must support the fuel tank, and take loose the straps that hold it up. Slowly lower the tank until you can unhook the tank filler hose and overflow hose by taking the clamps off and sliding the hoses off. lower it some more, and unhook the fuel lines; they require you to insert a special tool around the edge of the connection, however this can be improvised with screwdrivers or a piece of plastic or metal bent into a C shape. Next unhook the wire connection. Once you get it down, it's easiest to empty as much fuel as you can; as this will help you get it back into place. The fuel pump is inside the tank, which locks into place with a 1/8th turn. You will need a hammer and a brass punch for this job, as it needs to be tapped around to unlock. It will then lift out. Compare the two pump assemblies. The inside parts can be slightly different, but ensure that the fuel lines are IDENTICAL and the wire connection is IDENTICAL. The new one will come with a new silicone seal. Ensure that you don't put the new one in in such a way as the float doesn't bind, otherwise you'll be doing this procedure again if you don't like guessing how much gas you have. This can be a challenge to wrestle with putting the new one in, as you have to push it down to compress the new seal, and turn it to lock it. Once you get it started, you can let up and use the hammer and punch again to tighten it the rest of the way. Next, put it back together just as you took it apart, and don't forget to hook up the wires, hoses, and fuel lines. No tools required for the fuel lines, they just snap together. Once everything's tight and hooked up, put gas back in it, and if you haven't already, put the fuel pump relay back in. This you can do as soon as the car dies, and is completely optional if the car won't run at all. You are now ready to start it up, but turn the ignition on to the run position, wait a few seconds for the pump to pressurize, and then start it. Have fun, and feel free to ask any questions should you have any.

Why does fuel pump want stay on in chevy cavalier 1999


...if it wants to stay on after turning the engine off, it is probably a malfunctioning fuel pump relay.

...if it won't stay on after starting the engine, it is probably a bad oil pressure switch. Not sure what you meant.

I have a chevy cavalier and my oil light keeps coming on can you tell me what may be the problem?


The obvious problem is you are low on oil. If that is OK then you could have a bad sending unit. Worse case is that your not getting enough oil pressure and the engine may be getting tired or the oil pump is weak. If you try a thicker oil like 10W40 or 10W50 and see if the problem goes away.
