I'm replacing the oil pump on my 2001 blazer with a 4.3 V6. How do I get the oil pan off without removing the entire engine from the vehicle.? What part of the engine do I place the jack under to lift

its not that straight forward as the engine is held in place by the engine mounts, so just jacking up the engine will lift the whole front end , you will need to disconnect engine from mounts and place a holding bar across the top of engine to stop it falling ,then you can jack it up , best thing for you to do is get a good workshop manual as will give you step by step instructions and will have for future reference, good luck

How do i replace oil pump on 01 monte carlo ss

If the oil pan will clear the steering components without jacking up the engine then drop the pan and unbolt the oil pump. You'll need to get a new pan gasket for the oil pan too.

Locate the oil pump how to change it

The location of the oil pump is located inside the engine oil pan. The oil pan being on the very bottom of the engine. This would be a fairly difficult job for a beginner. Highly suggest obtaining a manual with specific directions. Disconnect battery, Make sure to remove intake plenium for clearance when jacking engine after disconnecting engine mounts, and losen only on the rear transmission mount. It will also be necessary to disconnect radiator connections hoses and transmission lines if automatic, on the safe side many people just remove the radiator all together to avoid damageing it with the engines bottom pulley when lifting/jacking engine. The engine will have to be lifted enough to facilitate the removal of the oil pan. Caution, sometimes the oil pump/ pick up screen tube assy. will have to be disconnected before the pan will clear these can just be dropped into the pan. Also, it is not uncommon to have to rotate the crank by the front pulley in order to get the cranks throws to clear the pan as well. Remember going back together you may have to slide the oil pan in place first then put the new oil pump in. This will be tight work and you may do a lot of swearing! Caution again never work in these close areas without supporting the engine on some wooden blocks! I have used short pieces of 4x4's in the past, make sure the engine is securely supported. Remember when going back together to retighten everything you loosend make a list. Before doing all this work please do an oil pressure check and not just rely on the gauge as an indicator to change the oil pump. Also, if an engine has not been serviced regularly the engine oil pan could have a build up of sluge blocking the oil pump's pickup screen therefore decreasing the oil pressure. God Bless

Timing belt or chain

Ummmm woahhh hold up here...every 2.7 litre V6 i've been associated with had timing CHAINS. The chains ran the water pump and dual over head camshafts.
The 2.7l engine was manufactured by Mitsubishi for Chrysler and had an internal water pump with defective seals that allowed coolant to leak & mix with the oil causing severe sludging problems and eventual engine FAILURE...This has been a nightmare for Chrysler AND OWNERS !
MANY owners have contacted ISG Impartial Services Group 1-(866)332-3746 for a settlement with Chrysler
Attached is a cutaway view of the 2.7 litre, and as you can clearly see it is chain driven.
I've been a MOPAR enthusiast all my life...sadly, this engine was one of the worst to ever hit the streets.
Good luck Doug...i hope this helps.

Replace Oil Pan on 1996 Volvo 850GL

Your motor mounts may inhibit jacking the engine far enough up to clear the oil pump so it may be necessary to loosen one or more. This is not a critical point so retightening them shouldn't cause any problems.
