Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
The oil pressure is low on my 96 toyota 2200 cc engine. a mechanic told me i needed an oil pump. i pulled the oil pan to check the rod bearings and found an impressive looking thing bolted to the bottom of the engine just below the rod bearings. what is it and can i safely remove it to check the bearings? also can the oil pump be replaced without pulling the engine?
The oil pump can be changed without pulling the engine.
The impressive looking thing is the balance shaft assembly. These counter-rotating shafts balance out the inherent vibration of the engine. You can remove it, as long as you do not disrupt the gear placements relationship to each other. The balance assembly is set to a specific point.
