Question about 1989 Ford Ranger
I need to know how to change an oil pump on a 1989 for ranger 4 cyl.
You should not rely on the dash gage for this decision... If you have verified poor pressure, only then should consider changing it. Remember oil can loose pressure at many places internally and replacing it may not accomplish your goal.
Now to change the oil pump without engine removal is quite a task, take off the oil pan and the sump filter, then with lots of light, you can reach up in there with a long allen socket or 12pt 7/16 size?, and pull it out.... not sure if the distributor needs to come out ...remove it only if necessary. be careful not to turn over the crank if you remove the distributor because it is driven by the camshaft as I recall and this would obviously get change your spark timing set up.
