If it's lubricating oil, you don't need to prime, it is self-priming. If you have a diesel engine, and you are speaking of the diesel fuel and filter pump system, then you should have a manual pump on top of the fuel filter that when pushed down and released, will suction fuel from the tank and push through the filter and to the injection pump. Although, most large trucks use an electric "lift pump" which does this automatically. So if you can be more descriptive of your problem it will help us to help you.

Pressure wash the engine top and bottom and then drive it and check for the source of the leak, the engine must be completely clean of oil

I had my oil pan replaced and now I have no oil pressure.


you need to prime the oil pump before runninning the engine, easiest way is to locate the oil pump drive and attach a drill to spin the pump so the oil gets around all the galleries

I have a 86 ford f-250 w/ a carbed 460.no fuel to carb. was told i had very low oil pressure.would changing oilpump and assending unit fix my propblem? do i have to pull motor to change oilpump? what...


If you're not getting fuel to the carburetor, check/change your fuel filter, check the fuel pump. And for the oil pressure you can change the oil pressure sending unit to see if thats the problem, for the oil pump the oil pan has to come off, it can be changed without pulling the engine, however you still have to lift the engine up.

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.

Why replace the oil pump? That won't make noises go away or cause noises. Your mechanic should be able to answer theses questions, as to the cause of noises.

Procedure to r&r oil pump


To remove the oil pump you will need to drop the oil pan to gain access to the oil pump. Difficulty depends on what engine is in the van and clearances available to remove the pan. But, basically an easy process if you have any mechanical skills and the correct tools for the process.
Be sure to prime the new oil pump before you install it or start the engine.
