Yes the oil pump is inside the engine oil pan, you will have to remove the exhaust to get the pan off.

How difficult is it to change the oil pump in a 1998 camaro(3800 V6)?


Should be inside the timing cover. You remove the timing cover to access the pump parts. Not really a pump assembly like pumps mounted inside oil pans.
I doubt the pump is faulty.
Have you checked the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge ?

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.

Would like to know where oil pump is located on Ford Taurus-2002 engine?


The oil pump is located inside the oil pan. It's an internal componet of the engine. It requires removal of the oil pan to gain access to it.

Need to replace gasket on the external oil pump, 95 tauras 3.8 v6


I owned a 95 Taurus for several years and done my own maint. I never heard of an external oil pump. The pump is in the oil pan and runs off the cam shaft. To replace it you have to pull the oil pan. After that it is fairly easy. Take out the bolts and it will come out. There are no springs to worry about.If you were talking about some other pump let me know.

1994 Ford Taurus 3.0 Oil Light and pressure


Yes, the oil pump is accessible when the oil pan is removed and at those miles it would be a good preventive maintenance idea to replace the oil pump.

Secondly, you should shop around for a better price. $332.00 seems a little high.

With an oil pump replacement, the pan gasket and the oil change should be included in the price, seeing as how those items are removed anyway.

As with any auto repair, its buyer beware. the crooks count on the fact that you don't know what is involved with the repair, or else you would have done it yourself.

Good luck

My 1996 grand am gt has a 3100 v6 and the top of the motor isnt getting any oil , the motor wont tach up and it dies after a few minutes could the oil pump be the only problem maybe a shut down system or...


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
