The oil pump is located on the engine in the oil pan. Once you remove the oil pan you will see the oil pump with the sump attached.

Mi oil light not going out,I change the oil pump and oil light switch and no result


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 .

How to tell if oil pump is starting to go out?


1. Engine Noise. With a bad oil pump sufficient engine oil will not get to all parts of the engine, especially the top end, and you will get engine noise with metal parts that would normally be lubricated and quiet knocking due to metal to metal contact. Engines with hydraulic lifters that become noisy can be a sign that they have insufficient oil supply. In addition to the hydraulic lifters, your valve train may begin to make noise if your oil pump begins to fail. Valve train components need to be properly lubricated as well. A bad oil pump can result in a lot of additional noise from your valve train system.

2. Higher engine temperature. Poor lubrication because of poor oil flow generated from the pump will cause friction in the engine and the engine temperature will rise. Good oil flow is essential for lubrication and reducing friction to a minimum.

3. Low oil pressure. The oil pump generates oil flow through the engine but tolerances between metal parts produce the oil pressure. Very worn engine bearings will result in low oil pressure. Thus a worn engine will have low oil pressure even though the oil pump may be fine and there is no issue with the oil pressure relief valve either. However you will also experience low oil pressure due to a failing oil pump because poor oil flow will also result in lower oil pressure.

If your oil pressure warning light has been triggered in your engine, the causes of the low pressure need to be properly investigated because the problem may not be with the oil pump. People replace oil pumps assuming that is always the problem and then still have low oil pressure because the pump was not the problem to begin with.

OIL PUMP


This Depends on a 2 Details, ENGINE Size 4by4 or NOT. Most are Fairly Simple Once the Oil Pan has been Removed and the OIL PAN is Normaly the HARDEST Part of it

AFTER OIL PAN REMOVAL
  1. Remove the oil pump. Refer to Oil Pump, Pump Screen and Deflector Removal.
  2. A loose screen or pipe assembly can result in an air leak and loss of oil pressure. For more information, refer to Oil Pump Clean and Inspect.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
.
  1. Install the oil pump and the oil deflector. Do not reuse the oil pump drive shaft retainer (4). During assembly, install a NEW oil pump driveshaft retainer. Refer to Oil Pump, Pump Screen and Deflector Installation.
  2. Install the engine oil pan. Refer to Oil Pan Replacement

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.

Loss of power steering in my 1996 Grand AM


What you've said is possible but likely there was some pump damage when you originally had the hose leak. Manufacturers have always said to use P/S fluid in steering pumps but within the past ten years this has become more critical to the point that I now would never "cheat" and use trans oil.
If you remove the return hose and drain system (running), then re-fill with p/s oil you MAY regain function, but it's not a 100% chance.
If you do this, make sure you bleed air out by turning wheels all the way left, then all way right and checking fluid level each time till oil level stablizes. If some performance is restored, repeat in about one week. If not, replace the pump.

Impreza 2000 turbo uk model


Yes, there IS a known oiling problem:

Subaru TSB 02-103-07
Applicability: All Turbo Equipped Vehicles
Subject: Turbocharger Oil Supply Mesh Screen
http://store.forcedperformance.net/merchant2/graphics/subaru_oil/02-103-07.pdf

"... If clogged or restricted, it will reduce or cut off oil supply to the turbo, resulting in failure. ..."

Your turbo may be toast! ***ouch!***
I have found more info on 2004 - 2007 models, but may or may not be applicable to your 2000 Impreza. I am not familiar with the the UK model differences, but if yours has AVCS use your favorite internet search engine to search for "Subaru AVCS" or "Subaru TSB". Good luck!
