How to tell? Engine noisy? To confirm it, have mechanical gauge attached, to be sure there is or isn't sufficient pressure.

Oil pressure light

The oil pump should be located in the vehicles oil pan, when you take the pan off there should be a screen and tube that leads up to the pump

I would say that you are definitely low on oil pressure. The oil pump is usually located inside of the oil pan. Depending on what vehicle you have you might have to have the engine removed to access the oil pan to get to the oil pump. I know on a Cadillac Northstar engine you get 43 hours to do an oil pump.

Oil light keeps coming on

1992 ford explorer with the oil light coming on, this can be due to a bad switch, this switch is called the oil pressure switch and is located near the oil filter area, this would be the cheapest way to go first and if the light still comes on then you will need to have a pressure gauge hooked to where the switch goes and the gauge will tell you if its really low on oil pressure and if it is then this may be due to worn engine bearings or weak oil pump, i will tell you i have not seen an explorer with low oil pressure just needing a oil pump, most of the time it is time for another engine. what =i have seen is alot of them with bad oil pressure switches that were making the oil light come on . hope this is helpful, good luck.

If it's a 4.6L engine then the oil pump is located behind the timing cover, chain and sprockets. If it's a 5.0L, or 5.8L then it is located inside the oil pan.

Please rate my answer.

Where is the oil pump located on jeep liberty 2002

oil pump is in the oil pan,sounds like your problem is in the crank bearings if one crank bearing goes you will loose oil pressure causing oil light to come on.

Where is the oil pump located on the 2001 RAV 4? Our mechanic is estimating it will cost 600+ to replace. ($400 in labor) Checking to see if that is out of line. Thank you so much!

I would call around and get some estimates and find out if your mechanic is being competitive. The oil pump is a big job, and is located in side the oil pan. If I am not mistaken, on the rav4 there is a cross member that goes across the oil pan preventing you from just taking it down. You lhave to unbolt the engine mounts and jack the engine up enough to remove the pan and get to the pump. I would still recommend calling around and getting some estimates. The rav 4 is not known for having oil pump issues. Could you please tell me why your mechanic says you need to replace this part?

No oil pressure

It could be the sending unit,but it could also be the high pressure bypass on the oil pump itself,the sending unit will be on the side of the motor usually close to the oil filter.

Oil smell

hi most of those motors start leaking oil at the front of the motor.where the oil filter is located if this is where its leaking its probably running down on your exhaust.its probably just small now but it will get worse you will probably have to put a new oil pump gasket on it thanks jeff
