Change oil pump 99' Ford Taurus V6-3.0 Station Wagon

Engine rattles from time to time. Not a rod knock........but not far I'm sure. Seens like a oil pump going or possible blockage. Car has 173,000mi. New oil and filter noise stopped for short time. Looking under car it appears that starter and exhaust will have to drop, to pull pan. Does anyone know if this is ture? Where can I get possitive direction to a solution?

Does your oil light come on because if your oil light comes on and the the car is cold there is no knocking but when the car warms up you hear the knocking its going to be your oil pump and the oil pump screen

2001 crown vic leaks oil and makes knocking sound when i accelerate, what can this be and please dont say rod knock


Can be several things. I want to say spark knock. Don't remember if your engine came with a Knock sensor.

Also stretched timing chain or weak timing chain tensioner. Another term to look at is "valve rattle". This would give you closer to a machine gun sound than other things.

Afer being driven 5-7 miljes my 99 tauras loses


I would have to say your engine is probably shot. The bearings are probably gone. It is possible, i suppose, that your oil pump is faulty. As soon as the oil warms up, and becomes thin, the rods and lifters start to rattle. The same goes for the oil pump, as oil becomes hot, and thin, it may not be pumping properly. I would try a used oil pump, and see if there is any difference before i wrote the engine off.

1997 Ford Taurus oil pressure light comes on only when rpm's drop below 700. Have change the oil pressure switch but still happens.


Worn oil pump or cam brgs. Noticed the oil change, what about the oil filter?The oil filter has a bypass in it that will allow unfiltered oil to get past the oil filter if it plugs up. What is your mileage now and how was your maintenance habits? Good Luck. Remember, your cam brgs are the first point of resistance that control your oil pressure, not your rods or mains

Noking


a knock from the bottom of the motor is a big end bearing STOP DRIVING, new engine or rebuild required, a knock from the rear of the engine could be loose pressure plate on clutch assembly, that is if it is a manual, STOP DRIVING. a rattle from top end is lifters or rockers but you say its a knock so probably not it. one test to do, remove all drive belts to water pump etc and start if the knocking is still apparent then it is internal and time to consider trade in, rebuild or new engine.

Knocking noise in 3.8 lit 95 ford taurus


You can not put a liquid where metal is supposed to be. Just a general rule of thumb. The high RPM's had been too much for the engine, and A rod bearing, or rod knocking is about the same thing. Dont try the heavier oil thing, I hate when ppl suggest such stuff. Just replace the bearing, or in most cases and cost efficent, the engine.
