How to replace oil pump un an a 2007 dodge durango 5.7 hemi motor

the oil pump is located inside the oil pan. removing the motor will be needed to do the job unless you got a new way to open the oil pan with everything in the way. if you have really low or no oil pressure. or after driving for a few miles the pressure drops a lot. the bearings could also be gone and that is going to need to be address with the motor out. other option is get a junkyard motor and replace it. but you never know what could be wrong with that motor. try to hear the engine run if possible

Sounds like a big end bearing has gone . Loose bearing (knock) smoke (excessive oil overloading oil rings) low oil pressure ( pump cannot keep up the pressure). Sorry but if it is a replacement motor is the only answer.

My car keeps overheating. My coolant is draining out all the time so i refill it about every other day. Oil lights on and i got an oil change so its new oil but the light is still on. So i took it in and...

If you don't repair the water pump you will be walking, A used motor runs around $500-$750 and the labor to put in the engine is $500-$1000 so you dicide if you want to spend a couple hundred now or $1500 later, I would fix the water pump and install a new thermostat and coolant.
As for the oil light= check that the wire connector is attached to the oil pressure sensor located by the oil filter, replace if the wiring is good, now if it is still on, put an oil pressure gauge on where the sensor is installed and check to make sure the oil pump is producing pressure

I have a problem oil pump and I would like to know if you have to pull the engine to get at it. My mechanic does not have a hydraulic lift.

You remove the oil pan only

If you have 4 wheel drive truck, then you remove
the center differential to remove the pan

May want a different repair shop

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.
