Question about 1983 Ford Ranger
If the oil pump fails and the engine continues to run then there will be catastrophic engine damage and then the engine will seize.(this would be accompanied by loud knocking noises and possibly smoke and in some cases fire in the engine compartment) If this has happened to your engine then yes it can cause the engine not to turn over. but if you parked the vehicle and every thing was fine. then you came to start it later and it wouldn't start then no the oil pump will have nothing to do with this no start issue.
Hope this Helps!
