You'll need to unbolt the motor from the transmission to raise the engine enough to get the oil pump out.

Hi All Please help, what is the capacity of oil in a ford ranger 2.2 2014 base line? Also after the oil filter and change the oil light comes on. I used 7L of oil. Feedback will be appreciated


My best research shows this engine holds only 3.8 liters. If the engine is overfilled, the crank and connecting rods will be submerged in oil and can aerate air into the oil as it turns, causing low oil pressure, causing the light. If it is high enough to touch the piston bottoms, engine damage can result.
