Take the bolts out of the front engine mounts and put a 2x4 between the crankshaft pulley and a floor jack to raise the engine enough to clear the steering parts.

How do you change the oil pump in a 1995 chevy lumina 3100


You must remove the oil pan. I do not think you can do this with the engine in the car. If you can remvove the pan from the bottom without engine removal, it would be easy. Most every engine has to be removed to fully remove the oilpan. So my solution is- remove engine, remove oilpan, remove pump, replace pump, pan, and engine.

Can i remove oil pan without removing engine 1984 s10 2wd 2.8 v6


Yes, you can remove the pan without removing the engine. You may have to remove anything preventing you from getting the pan out or you may have to disconnect the engine mounts and raise the engine enough to get the pan out.

Difficulty in changing the oil pan gasket I dont have the car here to look at do I have to remove any type of crossmember bracing or is it a direct shot to remove it


It's a direct shot....

Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Drain the engine oil into a suitable container.
    1. Remove the transaxle converter cover.
  3. For 1986-90 vehicles, remove the starter motor from the vehicle, as outlined in Section 2.
  4. Remove the oil filter.
  5. If equipped, disconnect the oil level sensor.
  6. For 1996-99 vehicles, remove the oil level sensor. On these vehicles, the oil level sensor must be removed prior to removing the pan. If the pan is removed first, damage to the sensor may occur.
  7. Remove the oil pan-to-engine bolts and the oil pan. Remove and discard the oil pan gasket. The formed rubber oil pan gasket cannot be reused.
  8. If necessary, remove the oil pump pipe and screen.
  9. Thoroughly clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
To install:
  1. If removed, install the oil pump pipe and screen. Secure with the retaining bolt(s) and tighten to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  2. Place a new formed rubber gasket in the oil pan flange.
  3. Position the oil pan and secure with the oil pan-to-engine bolts. Tighten the bolts to 124 inch lbs. (14 Nm). Do NOT overtighten the bolts, as this will damage the oil pan, causing a leak.
  4. For 1986-90 vehicles, install the starter motor and transaxle converter cover.
  5. Install a new oil filter.
  6. For 1996-99 vehicles, install the oil level sensor.
  7. If equipped, connect the low oil level sensor wire.
  8. Carefully lower the vehicle.

WARNING Operating the engine without the proper amount and type of engine oil will result in severe engine damage.


  1. Fill the crankcase with the proper type and amount of engine oil.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine and check for leaks. Check the oil level and add if necessary.

My oil pan is cracked and I want to know if I have to remove the engine to change this.


If you can see and get to all of the bolts which hold the oil pan to the bottom of the engine and if it appears obvious that the oil pan can be removed without being blocked by anything else, then you don't have to remove the engine. Come to think of it, I don't think that I have ever seen a car where you had to remove the engine in order to remove the oil pan.

Replace oil pump


Oil Pump is in the oil pan.. You would have to take the pan out. To get the pan out you either have to raise the motor up or remove crossmembers.
