If its an internal oil pump the cam will run it. Are you sure its the pump or is it the sending unit, is the engine making noise like there is no oil pressure, like lifter noise, rocker noise, knocking? Pumps do go bad, they have gears in them, a gear could have worn down or broke, or maybe a seal blew out, and it won't hold pressure. whatever, if its bad it will have to be chg.

That sounds like a pump... the oil pump is inside of the engine. You need to drop the oil pan to gain access - however, you will need to pull the motor to do that.

I have a '99 Ford Taurus with 178K miles. The oil light came on while I was driving the vehicle. There was oil in the vehicle. I have replaced the oil sending unit and the oil pump strainer has been...

No! If the engine is running fine and sounds normal the light might be coming on for some other reason. If you remove the wire from the sending unit does the light go out? That wire if it contacts ground anywhere it'll turn the light on. Melted to the exhaust is where you might find it. Next if the light seems to be working OK isto remove the oil sending unit and momentaryly crank the engine and see if any oil comes out. If not you've got troble. Was the oil screen on the oil pump truly dirty? Things that can happen is a partical of something ( a timing chain tooth ) gets in the oil pumps presure regulater and holds the piston of the oil regulater open. This makes the oil pressure quite low. Before buying anything expensive make sure you have a problem first. with the oil pressure switch removed connect a pressure gauge to the port ( of course if the lasttest of just leaving it open did'nt spray oil out then your into the pump) If theirs no pressure your investagating the pump it'self. The drive can break the pump can be broken an like I said earlier the regulater can be stuck open or thekey came out and the regulater is open ( it's part of the pump ) If your not quite sure what your looking at, go the the store and get the new pump. Your old one should look the same. Until youfind the problem don't drive the car anymore unless you decide there is oil pressure and the lght is wrong.

Stop oil presure

Do not drive it if the idiot light is on. regardless of reason, the engine is not getting proper lubrication. This is a well known problem for passats, where faulty oil pump design creates sludge that clogs up the oil lines. See if a complete oil replacement ( not just oil change), including a solvent and carter cleanup, and then replacing the oil with synthetic oil cures the problem. Otherwise, you will have to take it to the dealer for oil pump inspection, and probably, replacement.

1994 buic centry fuel pump no power

Look on the back side of the block to see it it's there between firewall and engine, or take it to a auto parts store and tell them you want to replace the oil pressure switch then ask them to show you were it is and buy it from them. This was common for GM products, it was a safety to keep from burning up motors since customers were to lazy to check oil level but the switch's do go out and they won't run.

1994 Ford Taurus 3.0 Oil Light and pressure

Yes, the oil pump is accessible when the oil pan is removed and at those miles it would be a good preventive maintenance idea to replace the oil pump.

Secondly, you should shop around for a better price. $332.00 seems a little high.

With an oil pump replacement, the pan gasket and the oil change should be included in the price, seeing as how those items are removed anyway.

As with any auto repair, its buyer beware. the crooks count on the fact that you don't know what is involved with the repair, or else you would have done it yourself.

Good luck

Oil presure sending unit

Check, if the oil level is low, top off.
If the oil level was ok then you can replace the oil sending unit.
