The oil pump is in the oil pan. I'm not sure if you can get the oil pan off without taking the engine out of the truck.

    u could remove the front passenger side axel beam. this would give u the clearance you need to remove the pan. u would still have to jack up the engine n ******, but its easier than removing the whole engine and having to realign the tc.

I have a 1996 ford Taurus 24valve V6 oil is reading full..but oil light keeps coming on and has a slight knocking sound..don't know where to start

First off,when did you last change the oil? Did you change the filter?
Sounds like an oil pressure drop,or a serious engine problem.
If the oil could stand changing,go with a heavier viscosity,like 10W30 or 10W40 if necessary.
ALWAYS change the filter when the oil is changed. don-ohio (:^)
