SOURCE: Need to replace oil pump on 86 Chevy S-10 V6

No. Just remove the oil pan and the oil pump mounting bolt and the oil pickup tube nut and there is no need to lift the engine. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Likely cams are beginning to seize in the head. Usually this is the result of carbon plugging the oil pump pickup screen or internal oil passages. Changing the pump will not fix this unless your pump is inside the oil pan with pickup attached. If bearing surfaces on cam are damaged, you may be able to restore oil pressure but likely have already done internal engine damage which may extend to crank bearings as well. Generally at this point I recommend a replacement engine or vehicle. I really don't like telling people this.
good luck

SOURCE: replacing thermostat on 3100 sfi v6

1. drain coolant from radiator
2. unbolt and remove the water neck from the engine block (it's attached to the upper radiator hose) and scrape any leftover gasket material off of the mating surface w/ a razor or gasket scraper, being careful not to actually gouge the metal
3. pull thermostat out of engine block (it's easy to see w/ the water neck off)
4. scrape any gasket material off mating surface on engine side, being even more careful not to gouge the metal here
5. place new t-stat on engine side opening
6. place gasket over the thermostat (you can put a thin bead of RTV sealant on both sides of the gasket if you wish, some people think it's overkill, but i hate doing things twice)
7. replace water neck
8. refill cooling system, use the little brass bleeder screw on top of the motor to bleed out the air until a steady stream of coolant is coming out after the engine is warmed up. close the screw.

Exactly which pulley is my water pump? (1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 sfi v6)??????????????


The power steering pump is dead center on the top of the motor. If your standing on the passenger side the water pump is the next pulley to the right. The serpentine belt will go over the power steering pulley, under the water pump pulley, and then around the a/c compressor.

Oil pump not raing pressure


If this is a 3.0 liter V6 the oil pump is driven directly by the crankshaft. This pump is located directly behind the timing belt sprocket on the crank. To access it you'll have to remove bolts from the front portion of the oil pan and remove, for the most part, everything off the lower front portion of the motor. If you feel comfortable a good shade-tree mechanic you should be able to do this, expect a full weekend though. While doing this go ahead and replace timing belt and belt tensioner too. In truth I can't imagine this pump failing. They are very simple yet very rugged. Are you able to put another gauge on a oil line to test true oil pressure? Curious to what problems you are having?

Thanks,
Tom
