How do i change the oil pump on a 2000 lexus es300

Drain oil from the oil pan and recycle. Remove bolts holding oil pan up and remove oil pan. Remove bolt holding oil pump in. Install new pump. Replace oil pan gasket if necessary. Reinstall oil pan. Reinstall drain plug and refill with oil. Start engine and watch oil pressure gauge or light. Oil pressure should be normal almost instantly. Check for oil leaks.

What is wrong with my 2004 chevolet malibu, its leaking oil tremendously

If this has the v6, it's probably the intake manifold gaskets. This is a super common problem with these. You end getting oil in the cooling system and anti-freeze in the oil, they also leak externally when this happens. I would get it looked at/repaired asap or severe engine damage will result. I've had to replace quite a few over the years.

How do you get fan blade loose from water pump on 1998 f-150 4.2 liter

I seem to recall it is a left hand thread. They make tools for removal.
The wrench I think is a 32 mm open end looking wrench and the part to hold the water pump is a spanner wrench that is hooked shape for holding the bolts. Not sure on the size, could be a 35 mm nut on there...
The wrench for the fan blade

Spanner to grab and hold the water pump bolts.

Saw 1 person used a piece of flat stock steel, drill the holes at the same place as the bolts on the water pump, and install longer bolts through the flat stock to hold the water pump. He used a thread finder to get the correct size, and length of the factory bolts. They are a metric thread pitch, I cannot recall what they are at the moment ( M6x 0.75 is ringing a bell, but I can only be 50% sure about that )

The flat stock was used in place of the spanner to hold the water pump, and that person just used a 14" pipe wrench to grab the nut on the fan.

I almost have the water pump off but there is one bolt that is behind the power steerng pulley that I can not remove. I was wondering how to remove the power steering pulley?

To remove the pulley wheel from the power steering pump you typically have to remove 3 bolts but to get to those 3 bolts you have to use a socket and go through the holes on the pulley itself.

Oli pump change how to fix

You have to drain the oil, remove the oil pan, remove the two 1/2inch bolts that hold the oil pump to the block and one nut that holds the pick up tube then reinstall the new one, put new oil pan gasket on and reinstall the pan. It can be done inside the van but will not be easy.

How to replace an oil pump in an 93 toyota pickup with an 2.4

Oil Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 22R and 22R-E Engines
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Drain the oil from the engine. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the oil pump components on 22R and 22R-E engines 86823pax.gif

  3. Remove the oil pan.
  4. Remove the four bolts holding the oil strainer.
  5. Remove the drive belts.
  6. Remove the crankshaft pulley.
  7. If equipped with air conditioning, remove the compressor and its bracket. Support the compressor out of the way with the hoses attached. Do not discharge the system or loosen the compressor lines. Fig. 2: Bolt location identification 86823pay.gif

  8. Loosen the oil pump relief valve bolt.
  9. Remove the five retaining bolts and remove the oil pump assembly with the O-ring.
  10. Remove the oil pump drive spline from the crankshaft. To install: NOTE: Pack petroleum jelly between the oil pump gears. This will prime the pump during initial startup.
  11. Slide the pump drive spline onto the crankshaft. Place a new O-ring in the groove.
  12. Clean the threads of the upper retaining bolt of all grease, oil or debris. Clean all the bolts holes.
  13. Apply sealant to the first 2 or 3 threads of the upper bolt. Install all the bolts. Tighten each to the correct tightness. Bolt (a): 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm); bolts (b) 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm) and bolts (c) 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
  14. Install and tighten the relief valve plug to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  15. Installation of the remaining components is in the reverse order of the removal procedure.

  11. Apply sealer to the oil pump mating surface, running the bead on the inside of the bolt holes. Position a new O-ring in the groove in the cylinder block and install the pump so that the spline teeth of the drive gear engage the large teeth on the crankshaft. Tighten the mounting bolts to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm). Fig. 3: Do not apply too much sealant on the pump surface, it can block the oil passage 86823pbb.gif
    Fig. 4: Align the pump drive and the pump 86823pbc.gif

How do you get to the fuel pump on this car is there a way without drop the tank? Also the pumps works but whinns and when i and tooling around town after it has been running for a while at low RPMs the...

The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. You must drop the tank to service it. You have options when you repair it. You can replace just the motor (cheaper) or you can replace the entire harness including the motor (expensve but easier).
It is difficult to determine which componant of the fuel process is bad. There are fuel fuses both in the fuse relay and in other areas such as under the hood. I don't know exactly where on the Monte Carlo.
The fuel pump powers up before you start the engine. To hear the fuel pump without the vehicle on, have someone "almost" start the car while you are underneath listening. Just before you start the car, the pump will turn on for about 3 seconds to pressure up before the car starts. Then it will shut off if you do not start it.
It should not be too difficult to drop the tank. Dissconnect the (-) batterey terminal. There should be some bands that clamp together with a long bolt that hold the tank up. Make sure you open the gas fill and disconnect it because that will also hold it up and keep it from dropping. There should also be a ground wire nearby that will need to be dissconnected. There will be several little clamps that hold the fuel lines connected to the frame that will need to be undone so as to create slack in order to drop the fuel tank.
If you have never done it before, you may need someone to show you how to remove the pump. There are rings with little tabs that need to be spun counter-clockwise. They might be covered in oil and dirt and difficult to see. Clean this area as much as you can. You do not want debris to fall in your tank when you remove the pump. Spinning the rings can be difficult. I use a screwdriver and a hammer and gently tap in the correct direction, alternating to a different tab every few taps so as not to shear off the tabs. Then replace with the correct part. Lifting the tank and getting the bands back in place is difficult but can be done.

I need help with my water pump in my saab900-sport.

The water pump is located at the firewall end of the engine. If your car has A/C. it makes it a little more difficult, as you'll find the compressor is in the way and difficult to work around. ONLY if your A/C system is empty, could you disconnect the hose to the A/C compressor. Otherwise you might consider disconnecting the entire compressor from the engine (but not opening theA/C sytem so you don;t loose the gas) and moving it out of the way if you can't work around it.

There are four bolts holding the pulley to the case; loosen these then remove the drive belt(s). The belts hold the pulley steady while you loosen the bolts.

Remove the pulley completely.

Then remove the bolts holding the pump to the case; NOTE the position of the longer bolts - you'll need to reinstall these in the same locations!

Install the new pump in reverse order; make sure you use new gaskets.

Penetrating oil liberally sprayed on all bolts before removal eases the work.

Good luck!
