In reallity the oil pump should never have to be replaced, its the best lubricated part of the engine , have a mechanical guage installed to check the actual oil pressure, if low it could be the filter, or internal engine wear, although if the pressure drops it may also be the oil pickup screen the only way to tell is to remove the oil pan

How to change a oil pump on a 2004 Suzuki forenza car with a 2.0 engine

I think the oil pump is in the oil pan. Messy difficult job. Not for most people because you really need a lift. How do you know you need a new oil pump?

Ford Taurus 2000 3.0 24 valves tapping oil light stay on like to know if the camshaft synchronize will be able to fix this problem or the oil pump

Low oil level, check the oil. Oil change needed, oil is worn and is not thick as it should be, drain and replace oil/filter. Oil filter clogged, or at last, it could be a weak or faulty oil pump or stripped oil pump driveshaft.

Replacing the oil pump on a 2006 kia serento

ok in order to change the oil pump u need to drop the oil pan which will be a mess and then u will have to take out the oil pump which u will be able to see once the oil pan is removed make sure u change the oil pressure switch and add the new gasket with the new oil pump and u will have to add a new gasket for the oil pan u dropped to get to the oil pump out it will not be an easy job . when u take out the pump u must check the gaps in the gears which make it possible to pump the oil u must take the plate off that covers it. if u do not know what u are doing go to ur local mechanic which will be cheaer then the dealer any day of the week.

That sounds like a pump... the oil pump is inside of the engine. You need to drop the oil pan to gain access - however, you will need to pull the motor to do that.

Oil light

To reset the oil change maintenance light is somewhat tricky.
When you first turn the car on ( without starting it ), you have 5 seconds to pump the gas 3 times. If it's done correctly, the display will say RESET in a few seconds.

I just had the head and radiator fixed on my 01 altima but now theres no oil pressure do anybody know why?

Check oil pump, that is probably not working. If the oil pump is fine you have a big oil leak.

Need to change oil pump on a 89 for ranger

You should not rely on the dash gage for this decision... If you have verified poor pressure, only then should consider changing it. Remember oil can loose pressure at many places internally and replacing it may not accomplish your goal.

Now to change the oil pump without engine removal is quite a task, take off the oil pan and the sump filter, then with lots of light, you can reach up in there with a long allen socket or 12pt 7/16 size?, and pull it out.... not sure if the distributor needs to come out ...remove it only if necessary. be careful not to turn over the crank if you remove the distributor because it is driven by the camshaft as I recall and this would obviously get change your spark timing set up.

good luck
