SOURCE: Pump Priming Problems.

you should try to pack the gears and pump cavity with petroleum jelly which will prime the pump and the oil will then displace the jelly. If you use any other kind of grease, the oil will not be able to displace it so make sure you only use petroleum jelly. This is the stuff used in the medical field but works great for this purpose too. Let me know how it goes and whether you have any further questions. Thanks and good luck

Changed the head in a 2000 chevy venture as soon as van starts low oil presure light comes on. Did oil change and put in new oil pump still low oil light on. Help


Two things I can think of. did you prime the new oil pump?. If so the oil pump by pass valve may be stuck open. I often prime a pump with petroleum jelly as oil often leaks out .

Had the pressure bypass valve malfunction on my 2.5 jeep put new oil pump in and with 45lbs. Oil pressure motor still sounds dry of oil,what gives?


it's not priming.
that grease trick helps.
is this some china pump off fleabay or a real jeep pump..???
did you do the below.:
1: the grease sure. and then prime the filter and the gallery behind the
filter.
2: With fuel and spark defeated, and spark plugs removed then with pressure gauge attached to sender port, did you crank it to get max pressure (my guess is this is the step you are posting on.)
i never start any engine, (after majors) unless i get #2 to work first the number 3, which is top end oil checks.

the pump is no priming.
In pro shops they make up a priming tool. so new engines are never
started, 1st time dry, ever.
one way is just a tank full of oil and shop air, and 2 valve.


maybe the new pumps relieve valve is stuck open, fully.
i rebuild my own classic engines, after all that work !!! i never
ever, skip these steps.
and for 100% sure, good pressure, and top end oiling on any major work.

Prime oil pump, 231 engine


You don't give the year and model, and I'm sure its not a Cutlass Ciera if it has a 231.
Usually its a good idea to pack the gears with grease or vaseline to help prime the pump. Since the pump is mounted on the outside of the engine it can be very difficult to get oil from the sump into the pump gears for the first time.

How do you prime the oil pump without disassembling the engine


Every time you drain the oil, the oil system drains
to some extent

Put oil in the filter & remove the injector fuse

Crank the engine awhile, to hopefully start oil flow

Wont start unless manually primed


Turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine

You should hear the fuel pump priming for about a few seconds then shutting itself off.
If not hear replace the engine oil pressure switch
The 3rd wire to that switch is the pumps prime switch lead.
When the engines oil pressure is reached the computer will shut that circuit off and turn on the fuel pump relay
If you hear the pump prime the relay maybe at fault instead

How do i prime the oil pump in a 99 e250 5.4L


Oil pump is self priming. You do not need to prime it. If not showing oil pressure, the sensor is probably defective. Make sure oil level is not low. If the vehicles water temperature gauge shows normal when running then oil pump is working fine. If it goes to the overheat mark then you may have defective oil pump, which is rare. Most temperature gauges go past the middle when you first start up but then drop back to normal once the engine thermostat opens up. Hope this helps.

Just replaced a 1998 catera engine now have no oil pressure was told i had to "prime the pump" how do i prime the oil pump?


The best way to prime the pump hoping that you havent ran the engine to long without oil pressure
is to remove the oil gauge switch ORoil light switch on the engine and get a connector with the correct thread to screw into the block and fit a hose to it and to a 1/2 ltr oil can pump oil in as hard as poss and then turn engine over IN REVERSE(Backwards) 3 times and then (pumping every time) refitswitch and start it should be ok....

How to replace oil pump 1997 honda accord does it need to be primed


You'll have to remove the oil pan to access the oil pump. And no it does not have to be primed. Why do you want to replace the oil pump? Did the oil pressure gauge indicate low pressure? If so did you check the oil pressure sending unit?
