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.
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.
The oil pump is inside the oil pan.The oil pan needs to be removed to get at it.Why do you need to get at the oil pump?They are a component that is usually problem free.If your gauge is showing low oil pressure you likely just need a oil pressure sensor.
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?
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
