pump isb behind the timing belt cover and is on the timing mechanism. all this has to be removed to change the pump.here is the engine diagram, that could be your problem. oil flush can sometimes fix this. and do a few oil changes with cheap oil and filters until it is clear.
Hi Teresa,here is the 3 links to change your oil pump,it says you have to remove oil pan and timing belt,so I will send you them,here's the oil pump removal guide.Here's the oil pan removal guide.Here's the link to the timing belt.Oops,here's how you remove the timing belt cover.Here's the oil pump.
Add about 2.5-quarts of new engine oil to the engine.
Remove the passenger-side wheel, and support the car on jack-stands.
Start the engine and look for oil leak.
Chances are leaks are coming from failed oil-pan gasket or the drain-plug.
The head-cover gasket could be failing as well..
Easiest way to get water out of the motor is to remove the head and then manually remove the water from the pistons / head.
Remove the head and spray it with brake cleaner, let it dry first
and then be sure to put synthetic motor oil (same weight as before) over the dry metal to help lubricate it again. (The brake cleaner will take out the water/dirt and clean it very easily)
After that, while the head is prepped to go back on, using a cloth that doesnt have lint, **** up all the **** out of the cylinders - like the water / shards of metal / etc.
This is a very tedious task, especially with a 300zx because like you said, theres no working room.
Might wanna check your turbo for possible moisture (It can make it rust and become faulty)
