You need to remove the oil pan to replace it so if you can get that off the engine without removeing the engine then you're good to go.

Oil pump replacement


Depends on what vehicle you have. Most pumps can be changed by dropping the oil pan. It may require raising the engine somewhat for the pan to clear the sump. Some vehicles have the oil pump run off the crankshaft on the side of the engine as well and are easier to access and change

How do you change the oil pump on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee limited 5.2 liter.The oil pressure drops almost down to zero when in idle normal operating temp range range. Need steps.


I'd be checking to make sure that the oil pump was not the problem before I tried to replace it.
How many KM/miles on the engine?
Regular maintenance?
Burning oil?

Oil Gauge Dropping to 5 psi


Hi again Kelea, I'm glad to help!

Kelea, if you do not hear a lot of engine rattling noises then I would say your "Oil Pump" is OK and you need to replace the "OIL SENDING UNIT" which you can buy at Autozone. CAUTION: If you do hear a lot of rattling noises coming from your engine then I'd suggest having someone check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is low then it could be all kinds of things that can cause low pressures. From engine bearings, to restrictions, to the oil pump itself. I would start with the oil sending unit first and see what your oil pressure looks like. If your oil pressure is good after replacing the sending unit then I'd consider never taking my vehicle back to the shop that told you it was the pump. Hope this helps and have awesome day.

NO OIL PRESSURE. 243,000 MILES. NOT OVERHEATING. SEEMS LIKE NOISE IS COMING FROM TOP OF ENGINE.


With that many miles on the engine it could be sludged up or the oil pump could be failing.

My oil pressure drops when i come 2 a stop whats wrong


there are a few possible problems. starting with the least costly would be an oil pump needing to be replaced. if your oil pump isnt bad then its a large leak somewhere in your engine usually caused by bearing failure requiring an overhaul or replacement of the engine. you say the oil drops? to what pressure?

Oil pressure drops and check gages light comes on when engine is running at a low rpm or is idling. engine has sufficient amount of oil and recently had oil changed. what could be the cause?


Inside your engine is an oil pump assembly which is mechanically operated to pump oil your through your engine while the vehicle is running. There is a pick up tube which extends from the pump to your oil pan and a screen which helps to keep large debris from entering your oil passage ways and engine components. If that screen is blocked you will have low oil pressure, if the pumps diaphragm is worn out you will need to replace your oil pump and this would cause your pressure to drop as well. I would also suggest having your oil pressure sending unit tested to make sure it's functioning first before doing any internal engine work. Hope this helps you and best of luck

1995 GMC Sierra z71 oil pressure dropped- need advice on this


The oil pump is in the oil pan and needs to be dropped and being a 4WD you also need to drop the front axle pumpkin to remove the oil pan and replace all the gasket needed. Start with the easy and replace the oil pressure sending unit, it's on the back of the engine to the passenger side of the distributor. You can go to Auto Zone and pick up a new Oil sending unit, just make sure your get the right one, "Sending Unit" Looks the same are the oil pressure sensor but the unit reads the pressure, the other just signal a light to go on and off. It's an easy fix like replacing a spark plug.
