Pretty hard, takes time for one, other is you need to tools and most likely a hoist to lift the engine up off the engine mounts.

You do not give make or model, Makes it hard for us mechanics . First check the drive to the pump is ok be it chain or camshaft driven, make sure the pick up tube is not cracked and the filter is not blocked .a new pump should be primed. pack the pump with petroleum jelly or prime with engine oil via the oil switch cavity .

check oil sending unit first. could be that it has failed and is sending a bad signal to the instruments. if it is the pump the engine has to be removed to change the pump.

My oil light keeps coming on and i changed my oil and itstill comes on. there are no oil spots unde thecar or puddles of oil .

Several issues could exist:
Faulty light - get computer code reading no code good chance its a light/short
Oil pump low pressure test with external pressure meter
Oil pressure sending unit

Once you determine you have oil pressure is good then its a fair chance you have a bad sending unit otherwise its a bad oil pump. Replacing an oil pump is not hard if you ca get the pan off without lifting the motor, Otherwise this is a big job

Think my oil pump going the light come on an rattling started then i got oil changed an added lucus it doing the same thing how hard is it yo get the oil pump out

Get the oil pressure tested....
If you hear rattling, it's probably low oil pressure, but it could be the pump, or if your bearings in the engine are worn badly, that will cause it also. (From antifreeze mixing with oil)

How are is it to replace the oil pump. just

Yes it can, do an oil change and filter. If oil isn't changed at regular intervals, the filter can become clogged and won't get a good flow.
It's best to change the oil every 3 months or 3,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Changing the pump is not an easy job.

Help on changing oil pump 0n 1999 jeep wrangler

Pump is fairly simple...remove pan unbolt pump and reverse procedure. It is good to pre-lube pump and fill oil filter before starting engine. BUT: Keep in mind that a damaged pump is generally not the cause but the result of a failure elsewhere. Primary reason is rod or main bearing wear, resulting in debris scoring the pump gears and internal surfaces. Therefore, changing the pump will at best, slightly raise pressure only for a very short time. If after removing the pan, you find that the pump pickup is nearly blocked off by hard carbon deposits, you may have a chance of regaining pressure, providing bearings have not been damaged by low oil suppply caused by that restriction.
