Fishinic: the oil pump is on the end of the crankshaft at the front.
you may have a clogged up screen at the bottom of the oil pick up tube which goes to th bottom of the oil pan.

This should be the oil pump. Do not attempt to start or run vehicle. It will cause engine damage.

Make sure there is not a problem with what drives the pump either. It could be gears etc.

I'm not sure about yours, but on many vehicles, the oil pump is driven by the distributor shaft.

My car is a 2006 Suzuki forenza manual with 67k miles on it. It just had an oil change a few months ago with a new filter as well. I didn't drive the car for a few days while the temperature was...


Suzuki should have stayed with just motorcycles. Anyway, You just had the oil changed. Check and see if they changed the filter also. They may have forgot or were just to lazy. Just a chance the oil filter is bad, I would replace it again(is the oil clean on the dipstick?). Add a higher viscosity oil. At 67,000 miles, you would have to drive dirt roads all the time, with no air filter to get sludge to clog the head ports. Which is slow drain of oil to the pan. The oil pump? well it could be, most likely not. I would say the oil sending unit is bad, but the knocking noise kind of throws that off. Knocking is bad, if it happens again, pull off and shut the engine down. One other thing to watch is the temperature gauge. getting really hot will cause knocking. Check coolant level and the thermostat.

All of sudden loss of power lifter knock


If the lifters are knocking that means they aren't getting oil. Check the oil level in the motor. If the oil is full and the oil pump is working as indicated by not getting an oil light, you might have a blockage in the internal oil passages that are blocking oil to the cam. This will cause the cam to wear very quickly and your motor will run hotter and lose power.

Bad oil pump knock


ionMr. Hugo. what to what you do have is the viscosity of your engine oil. Most probably is either long mileage used engine oil and due to that oil mud built up inside the engine, in the oil pan and most likely close to the oil pressure pump filter reducing the suction and that is why you do have cold lifter knocking,as the engine oil that time is thicker and when it gets hot become thinner and lifters stopped knocking. My persona advise do flush the old engine oil using ( RESTORE MOTOR CLEANER ) pour it into the engine old oil,start the engine in idle and few times reving it for 40 minutes. Then drain it and renew the engine oil with new and recommended engine oil for your engine,by renewing the oil filter as well. Also in the new engine oil put also (RESTORE FRICTION REDUCER ) additive and run the engine.For next oil change please do it every 5000 km ( 3000 miles)

OIL LITE WENT ON LIFTERS WRE NOISY OIL LEVEL IS GOOD HOW CAN YOU CHECK TO SEE IF OIL PUMP IS GOOD


I would be checking the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge . If you have used the correct viscosity oil the lifters should stop being noisy after a minute of starting the engine . If it is the pump then you will have to replace it but it may be a loose oil pick up line or loose pump allowing the oil pressure to escape back into the sump.

We change the oil pan gasket due to oil leak; after we finish changing the oil pan gasket we start the car & we hear a knocking noise, what do we have to do?


If it is the 3.0 you may have heard the lifters. but sometime when you leave an oil pan off for very long you will lose your prime from your oil pump and it will take an few sec to get primed. how long did you let it run for. did the the knocking go away

2003 Taurus. Oil light came on. Checked level. Good. Drove another 5 miles, now have engine knock on top side of motor. Thought maybe oil pump malfunction. In the middle of nowhere, drove 50 miles home....


Before driving it anymore I would have someone test the actual oil pressure using a mechanical test gauge to see how much , or little, oil pressure you actually have. The knocking noise could be a hydraulic lifter that is partially collapsed due to low oil pressure or a rod bearing that has been damaged from low oil pressure. If it is just a lifter that is making noise then there's a pretty good chance that the lifter will quiet back down once the oil pressure is normal again. If it turns out that your oil pressure is normal both at an idle and at highway speeds then the noise may be unrelated. You can cause some serious damage by continuing to operate any engine that is low on oil pressure even if the dipstick shows it to be full of oil. Hope this helps and good luck!

The symbol for the oil has lightened up. What could this be?


usually it comes on when you are low on oil, check oil, if it is good then there may be something wrong with the sensor or the pump inside( you will usually hear the valve/lifters knock) the oil pan. Hope this helped Tim

My husband was driving my 1003 Hyundai Santa Fe. He stopped the engine to get gas and when he went to start it up, the oil light came on the car was making a terrible knocking noise


have you had oil changed recently? if so look to see if oil pan plug is in tact. if so, check oil on dipstick. the problem is the car has no oil pressure. if the oil level is good the oil pump is bad. good luck!!

Oil light flashin with engine knock


To accurately check oil pressure, you need a mechanical pressure gauge and feed line. To use, remove the factory pressure sending unit and attach gauge.
Likely if the engine is already knocking, the problem is already there and the oil pressure light is telling you that (knock is either rod bearing, main bearing or lifter) Oil pumps do not generally fail. the pump gets oil before any other component is the last to not get oil. Pressure loss at a worn bearing causes pressure drop that turns on light (unless you don't have sufficient oil in the pan.)
