The oil pump screen should even be visible to you unless you are removing the oil pan. It only blocks fairly large debris and if you have that problem you have a much larger problem somwhere. If you suspect build up is a problem try running Gunk Engine cleaner before your next oil change. Make sure you follow the directions. It' s an actual additive you add to the engine before an oil change. Run the engine 5 minutes, no more. Then drain, oil replace filter and refill. If your having oil pressure problems there is something else wrong though as this is very difficult to clog unless you have broken something in the engine.

201 Lincoln 4.6 v8,no oil pressure,was fine when shut off last nite this morning no oil pressure??

Do not run engine further. The indicator light shows oil pressure but not oil level. You could be out of oil.

Check your oil level immediately--with the engine off, open hood, remove dipstick, wipe it clean. Insert it and extract it again. The oil level.should be between the Fill and Add lines. If it is lower than that, add oil, a quart at a time, until it reaches the proper level.

If the oil level is okay, then the engine needs to be repaired. You could have a broken oil pump, clogged intake screen, or some other internal engine failure. Do not drive the car to a shop. Have it towed.

How do I change a oil pump

  1. Drain the oil
  2. Remove the oil pan. You may have to lift or tilt the engine or remove frame members of the vehicle to do this, so it's probably the hardest part. Clean the gasket and seal surfaces on the engine block and crankshaft end bearings. Clean the oil pan. While you have the bottom of the engine open, inspect the cylinders for score marks and check for other anomalies such as sloppy piston bushings on the crank.
  3. Remove the oil inlet screen housing if it blocks access to the oil pump mounting bolts.
  4. Remove the oil pump. Clean the gasket/O-ring surface where it meets the engine block.
  5. Pour some clean oil into the outlet of the new oil pump (not so full you spill it when you install it). This will help it get oil into the engine more quickly on its first startup.
  6. Be sure you have the outlet gasket or O-ring in place!
  7. Install the new pump
  8. Clean or replace the filter screen assembly. Replace its O-ring and install on the oil pump.
  9. Reassemble the rest of the vehicle, using new gaskets and seals on the oil drain pan.
  10. Fill the new oil filter about 1/2 full of oil and install (always do this - it reduces the time the engine is turning dry after an oil change). This does not apply to vehicles that have open-face filters mounted in the bottom of the oil pan such as the 1980's Buick four-cylinder models.
  11. Add the rest of the oil in the usual manner.

A lot of my ford diesel friends are saying hot shots secret oil additive help thier injector problems? shoud i add it to my duramax 2003? already had all injectors replaced 70000 miles ago.

It will not help your Duramax injectors. They are not hydraulic. It will help your turbo and clean the rings in your engine. Hot Shot's Secret is a detergent and dispersant designed to clean the inside of the engine, especially the inside of oil fired injectors.

98 dodge dakota oil pressure problems

I personally would try pouring a bottle of Berryman's B-12 in the crankcase when it is warm and then changing the oil (which you have tried a similar approach with the flush). Or, I would add approx. 8 ounces of Sea Foam engine additive to the crankcase and drive it around for a little while to see if it helps. As a side note: You don't have to change the oil with the Sea Foam, only the B-12

Is thier any way to clean the oil pump, it may have trash on it . had my oil changed and light keeps coming on at operating temputure

check the oil level at operating temperature first. The oil pump is inside the engine and cannot be accessed without a large amount of engine disassembly. If the oil level is good, suspect a faulty oil level sensor or disconnected or damaged wiring to the sensor..

Unsteady oil pressure...fills with oil often...oil pressure so low car will stall and lock while driving...shops can find nothing....need help fast

Are you saying it is burning oil and you keep having to add oil? If so, it is apparent the engine my need an overhaul. The oil pump needs replacing also. Could be the engine was neglected by the previous owner and the oil was not changed at regular intervals. This can cause the oil passages to clog and also cause worn main & rod bearings along with crankshaft journals. The oil pump does not create pressure it only creates flow and the pressure is created by resistance of the oil flowing through orifices and by the amount of clearance between rod bearings and journals. If it is not burning allot of oil try this. Purchase a can of Seafoam engine treatment at almost any auto parts store. Change your oil & filter. Use the correct weight oil and a good filter such as Purolator or Wix. Add one can to the oil as instructed on the can. Follow the directions on the can and repeat the procedure 3 times making sure you Change the oil & filter each time. This may clean out the engine oil passages if this is the problem. If this does not help and changing to a quality filter does not help, you may need an engine overhaul. Of course the oil pump screen can also be clogged or the pump can be worn. The Seafoam may clear the oil pump screen. It is worth trying before you go to the expense of an overhaul.

      I have a 93 corsica and changed the iol pressure sending unit i got told to change oil pump cause there is no oil going to the heads does that make sence

      First, put a mechanical gauge on it and check the actual oil pressure.Should be no less than 15psi at idle, warmed up. (That is abslolute minimum, I like to see anything over 20) Unless the pickup screen is packed with debris, doing anything to the oil pump is a waste of time (pump gets oil before anything else in the engine and except for very rare times, is the last thing to fail in the system) Low pressure can be traced to worn bearings, 99% of the time! If this is the case, scrap the engine! If in fact little or no oil is getting to the heads, I'd flush engine and add a mild solvent/lubricant such as Marvel oil, then change the filter in approx 1000 miles, as it is possible that there is a sludge formation in a passage, but if completely blocked it would have destroyed the top end already! Hope this helps!!
