Where Is The Oil Pump Located>? And How Do I Replace The Oil Pump

Here you go. BIG Job!

The oil pump is an essential piece of equipment that keeps your Ford Taurus running. It lubricates the engine by keeping the oil circulating. Without this lubrication, the engine wouldn't run. An oil pump is usually located in the oil pan. If you want to change the oil pump and replace it with a new one, roll up your sleeves and get ready for some dirty work.

How to Check if an Oil Pump Is Bad

Things You'll Need

  • Wrench

  • New oil pump

  • New A/C bolts

Remove Old Oil Pump

  1. Drive your Ford Taurus up onto ramps or lifts so you have room to work as you pull out the oil pump. You could also use a jack, but make sure you brace the front wheels so they don't roll. In addition, set the emergency break firmly into position so the car doesn't roll.

  2. Take the engine out and put it on an engine stand then remove the upper intake manifold. Take off the valve covers then the accessory drive belt.

  3. Remove the power steering pump and the alternator. The water pump is the next component to remove, followed by the A/C compressor and bracket.

  4. Rotate the pulley shaft clockwise to remove the crankshaft pulley. It has left-handed threads.

  5. Pull out the oil pan and the oil pump screen and tube. Take off the front cover and the timing chains and remove the crankshaft timing gears. Finally, remove the oil pump, taking note of the bolts you removed and in which order you remove them.

Insert New Oil Pump

  1. Install the new oil pump and put the bolts back on in the same manner you removed them. Tighten these bolts to 71 to 106 in-lb.

  2. Reinsert the crankshaft timing gears, timing chains and front cover. Put the oil pump screen and tube back on, torquing the bolts to 71 to 106 in-lb, and torque the nut to 15 to 22 ft-lb.

  3. Put the oil pan back in, then the crankshaft pulley. Install the A/C compressor and bracket using new bolts for the A/C. Add the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, the accessory drive belt, valve covers and upper intake manifold.

  4. Replace the engine back into your Ford Taurus and fill the crankcase. Start your engine and look for leaks in the area you were working.

How do I install oil pump for 2000 ford explore v8.

The oil pan has to be dropped to get at it , it's bolted to bottom of the engine. I have done it on F-150 pick-up's before with a V-8. Had to take motor mounts lose so I could jack up engine to get the oil pan past the front cross member. Also had to reach in and take lose oil pick-up tube and drop in the oil pan . Not a tough job ,hardest part is cleaning old gasket off. A wire wheel on a drill does a real good job.

I need to replace oil pump on a 1988 ford bronco 2

Remove oil pan, making sure to drain oil first. Remove oil pump attaching bolts. Lift off oil pump and withdraw oil pump drive shaft.
Prime the new oil pump by filling either the inlet or outlet port with engine oil. Rotate the pump shaft to distribute oil within the pump body. Insert oil pump drive shaft into block dwith the pointed end facing inward. The pointed end is closest to the pressed-on flange. Place oil pump into position with a new gasket and install attaching screws. Tighten the screws to 15-22 foot pounds of tourque. Clean and install the oil pump inlet tube and screen assembly with a new gasket. Tighten the bolts, then replace the oil pan.
Oil Pan;
Clean of any debris and replace gasket. Fit the oil pan bolts and tighten in two steps. Start from the rear/left hand side and tighten first, then tighten the bolt in the front/right side. Alternate from rear to front, working from back to front and front to back.

Weres the oil pan on ford explorer

The oil pan is where the oil collects on the bottom of the engine before the pump picks it up and circulates it back up through the engine. So it will be the bottom most thing, bolted directly to the bottom of the engine block. Generally found about centered between the front wheels. Hint, looks like a pan with many little bolt heads around its outer perimeter. Rarely obstructions from the road puncture it, and often times with age its gasket leaks.
