Installing new Milodon oil pan& oil pick up

I installed a new Milodon oil pan and pick up myself. It was Very difficult and being on my back under my truck for two days was not fun. First question.  I had to take a bolt out from the bottom of the engine.To be able to bolt on the new oil pick up. Because the new pick up has a bracket welded on in a different place than the stock pick up. I put the bolt on and tightened it the best i could do. Now i talked to two people. One said i could just tightened as hard as i could. The other said i needed to use a torque wrench. Its already installed and the pan on. Is the engine going to be okay ?

How to replace the oil pan gasket in a f150 1988 truck


Hi there:

  1. Drain the cooling system.


CAUTIONWhen draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the bolts attaching the fan shroud to the radiator and position the shroud over the fan.
  2. Remove the upper intake manifold and throttle body (see Fuel System ).
  3. Remove the nuts and lockwashers attaching the engine support insulators to the chassis bracket.

How to change Oil Pump


3.3L Engine

The lubrication system is a full flow filtration system pressure feed type. Oil from the oil pan is pumped by an internal gear type oil pump directly coupled to the crankshaft. Its pressure is regulated by a relief valve located in the timing chain case cover. The oil is pumped through an oil filter and feeds a main oil gallery. This oil gallery feeds oil under pressure to the main and rod bearings and the camshaft bearings. Passages in the cylinder block feed oil to the hydraulic lifters and rocker shaft brackets which feeds the rocker arm pivots.
It is necessary to remove the oil pan, oil pump pick-up tube and timing Chain Case Cover (CCC) to service the oil pump rotors. The oil pump pressure relief valve can be serviced by removing the oil pan and oil pickup tube.
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable and drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the radiator assembly.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Drain the engine oil. Remove the oil filter.
  5. Disconnect the sway bar and place it to the rear of the vehicle to gain access to the oil pan.
  6. Remove the transmission support brackets and inspection cover.
  7. Remove the oil pan and the oil pump pick-up tube.
  8. Lower the vehicle.
  9. Remove the accessory drive belts and tensioner pulley bracket.
  10. Remove the power steering pump and set aside. Remove the air compressor mounting bolts and set compressor aside. Remove the compressor mounting bracket. It is not necessary to disconnect the refrigerant lines or evacuate the refrigerant from the air conditioning system.
  11. Using an appropriate puller, remove the crankshaft pulley.
  12. Remove the tensioner pulley bracket.
  13. Remove the camshaft sensor from the chain case cover.
  14. Remove the timing chain case cover mounting bolts and the cover from the front of the engine.
  15. Clean the gasket material from the mating surfaces of the cover and the block.
  16. Remove the oil pump cover retaining screws from the timing cover. Lift off the oil pump cover.
  17. Remove the pump rotors. Wash all parts in solvent and inspect carefully for damage or wear.

To install:
  1. Clean all parts well. Assemble the oil pump with new parts as required. Install the inner rotor with chamfer facing the cast iron oil pump cover.
  2. Install the pump cover and tighten the fasteners to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).
  3. Prime the oil pump prior to installation by filling the rotor cavity with clean engine oil.
  4. Remove the crankshaft oil seal from the front cover.
  5. Install a new cover gasket and O-ring onto the cover.
  6. Rotate the crankshaft so the oil pump drive flats are vertical. Position the oil pump inner rotor so the mating flats are in the same position as the crankshaft drive flats.
  7. Install the front cover making sure the pump is correctly engaged on the crankshaft, or severe damage may result.
  8. Install the chain case cover screws and snug the two bottom screws and the top center screw. Ensure the cover is seated to the block then tighten all screws to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  9. Install the oil seal and the crankshaft damper.
  10. Install the tensioner pulley bracket and the cam sensor.
  11. Install the air conditioning compressor to the mounting bracket.
  12. Install the accessory drive belt.
  13. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Tighten the oil pan drain plug and install a new oil filter.
  14. Install the oil pump pick-up tube and oil pan. Install the transaxle inspection cover, if removed.
  15. Fill the crankcase with clean engine oil to the proper level. Install a new oil filter.
  16. Install radiator assembly. Check condition of radiator hoses. Fill and bleed the cooling system.
  17. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Run engine and check for leaks. Verify correct oil pressure with a gauge.

How to change the oil pump of a ford ranger 1993


You didn't post your engine size so please pick the one that works for you....I'll post them all separately:

2.3L Engine The oil pumps are not serviceable. If defective, they must be replaced.
  1. Follow the service procedures under Oil Pan Removal and remove the oil pan assembly.
  2. Remove the oil pick-up and tube assembly from the pump.
  3. Remove the oil pump retainer bolts and remove the oil pump.
To install:
  1. Prime the oil pump with clean engine oil by filling either the inlet or outlet port with clean engine oil. Rotate the pump shaft to distribute the oil within the pump body.
  2. Install the pump and tighten the mounting bolts to 14-21 ft. lbs. (19-29 Nm)

WARNING Do not force the oil pump if it does not seat readily. The oil pump driveshaft may be misaligned with the distributor or shaft assembly. If the pump is tightened down with the driveshaft misaligned, damage to the pump could occur. To align, rotate the intermediate driveshaft into a new position.


  1. Install the oil pick-up and tube assembly to the pump. If there is a gasket between the pump and the pick-up, use a new gasket when installing.
  2. Install the oil pan as previously described.

How hard is it to replace the oil pan in an '04 Acura TL?


As to how hard it is to replace that depends. If you can remove the oil pan without removing any other parts then it is a simple repair. But if you must remove other parts in order to remove the pan it can be more difficult. Crawl under the car and see what must be removed in order to get the pan off. If you can buy a new oil pan for $95 then by all means buy it and replace it yourself or hire a trusted mechanic to do it for you. I can assure you it will not cost $300. At least find out what it will cost if done by someone other than the dealer. Honda's are reliable cars but their oil pan drain plugs are not. The problem is Honda uses an aluminum drain plug washer and this requires you to torque it to 29 ft/lbs in order for it to seal properly. Over time this will cause the pan threads, which are weak, to distort and eventually end up stripping out. The solution when you install your new oil pan is to not use an aluminum washer and instead use a fiber washer. If you pay someone else to change your oil, be sure and tell them to leave the fiber washer in place and not to install an aluminum washer. You then torque it to 15 ft/lbs and never have a leak or stripped threads. Another alternative is to just replace the drain plug with an inexpensive rubber drain plug you can purchase at any auto parts store. It will seal the drain and you just throw it away and install a new one at every oil change.
