How long and easy is it to rebuild oil pump on 94 grand caravan 3.8l


Don't bother. Replace the unit.
3.0 liter
The oil pump assembly used on this engine is mounted at the front of the crankshaft. The oil pump also retains the crankshaft front oil seal.
  1. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  2. Remove the timing belt cover and timing belt. Refer to the timing belt removal and installation procedures in this section.
  3. Remove the crankshaft sprocket.
  4. Remove the oil pump mounting bolts (5), and remove oil pump assembly. Mark mounting bolts for proper installation during reassembly.

To install:
  1. Clean the oil pump and engine block gasket surfaces thoroughly.
  2. Position a new gasket on pump assembly and install on cylinder block. Make sure correct length bolts are in proper locations and tighten all bolts to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  3. Install the crankshaft sprocket and timing belt. Recheck engine timing marks.
  4. Install the timing belt covers. For more details, refer to the timing belt cover installation procedures.
  5. Install the accessory drive belts.
  6. Refill the crankcase and start the engine.
  7. Check for correct engine oil pressure and for any oil leakage.
3.3 and 3.8 liter engines


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the dipstick.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support safely. Drain the oil and remove the oil pan.
  3. Remove the oil pickup.
  4. Remove the chain case cover.
  5. Disassemble the oil pump as required.

To install:
  1. Assemble the pump. Tighten the cover screws to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  2. Prime the oil pump by filling the rotor cavity with fresh oil and turning the rotors until oil comes out the pressure port. Repeat a few times until no air bubbles are present.
  3. Install the chain case cover.
  4. Clean out the oil pickup or replace as required. Replace the oil pickup O-ring and install the pickup to the pump.
  5. Install the oil pan.
  6. Install the dipstick. Fill the engine with the proper amount of oil.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable and check the oil pressure. Check for any oil leaks.
for the 3.3 you can rebuild, 3.0 - replace.

It goes and stops after 10 minutes. with 30 minutes cooling time it will go again for 10 more minutes. Ideas?


SOUND LIKE ENGINE GETTING TOO HOT.HAVE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE CHECK USING HAND HELD INFRA RED THERMOMETER OR SCAN TOOL.IF ENGINE GETTING TOO HOT CHECK COOLANT LEVEL.REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.MAKE SURE FRONT GRILLE AND RADIATOR CORES AND CONDENSOR CORES NOT STOPPED UP WITH DEBRIS AND LEAVES RESTRICTING AIR FLOW.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD HAVE RADIATOR FLUSHED AND ENGINE BLOCK FLUSHED SO COOLANT WILL CIRCULATE PROPERLY.

Why does my s-10 get hot with a new radiator and therostat|?


Odds are that you need a new water pump,if the impellers have degraded over time(they are made of cast iron and are now 12 years old) then the will not pump the volume of coolant that you need to properly cool your engine.

What is the proper timing on a 1978 Chevrolet Chevette?


My Motor book gives no timing for your engine that year, which suggests that it is preset. However that size engine ( should be a 97 cu. in. or 1600cc) for the 2 years before shows 8 degrees before TDC for a manual trans and 10 for an automatic. Hope this helps.

The engine stops running after 10 minutes of driving


could be a bad crank sensor, a bad crank sensor will let car run for a while then shut down and will not start for 10 to 15 min. and it will repeat this cycle if not fixed.the crankshaft position sensor provides the ignition module and pcm with a crankshaft position signal. the module uses this signal to determine spark for each cylinder. the pcm uses this signal for proper timing of engine.

1990 toyota pickup with 22re engine and 235000 miles failed smog in cali.,not because of emissions but because timing was at 30 degrees instead of 10. It starts and runs well. I have not adjusted timing ....


Reset the engine timing by first jumping pins E1 and Te1 in the grey box under the hood. If the truck runs poorly set to proper timing, your timing chain has jumped a tooth. Does it rattle bad at idle? Id so, the guides are worn out, and the chain is stretched.
