How do you replace a oil pump on a 2000 avalon


It's my understanding that the Avalon and Camry for said year are the same in respect to
the oil pump.I was able to come up with a video to show you how all the stuff has to be removed
from the front of the engine in order to get to the oil pump for replacement.This took some time
to find,but I do not mind.My friend,you've a lot of work ahead of you.I've been thru it before,and
won't do it again.Best of luck to you in your endeaver.

Now the oil pump proceedure in print:
Instructions
Remove Oil Pump
1
Drive your Toyota Camry up onto ramps or lifts so you have room to work as you pull out the oil pump.
You could also use a jack, but make sure you brace the front wheels so they don't roll. In addition,
set the emergency break firmly into position so the car doesn't roll.
2
Drain the oil out of your engine and disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the fender apron
seal and the undercover, the front exhaust pipe, and the front exhaust pipe bracket from the No. 1
oil pan.
3
Remove the following components in order: the alternator drive belt, the air conditioner compressor,
the power steering pump drive belt and the adjusting strut, the timing belt along with the belt
pulleys, the rear timing belt cover, the air conditioning compressor housing bracket, the No. 2 oil
pan and oil strainer, as well as the No. 1 oil pan and baffle plate.
4
Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor and remove all nine of the oil pump bolts. Remember where
each bolt was located.
5
Take out the oil pump body by reaching in and grasping between the oil pump and main bearing cap.
Remove the O-ring from the cylinder block then remove the plug, gasket, spring and relief valve
from the oil pump body.
6
Finish by taking out all nine screws, the pump body cover and the driven rotors. Clean all
components to remove contaminants.
Install the Oil Pump
7
Install the new oil pump by slipping it into the same spot where the old one was. Reconnect
the following: the driven rotors, the drive pump body cover, all nine screws, the oil pump
relief valve, the spring, the gasket and the plug to the oil pump body.
8
Insert a new O-ring onto the cylinder block and add liquid sealant to the oil pump and the
engine block. Put the oil pump back on the engine block.
9
Add and tighten the bolts over several passes, keeping the torque even. The 10 mm head should
be 69 in-lb. and the 12 mm head should be 14 ft-lb.
10
Reconnect the crankshaft position sensor, torquing the bolt to 69 in-lb. Insert the No. 1 oil
pan and oil strainer and the No. 2 oil pan.
11
Reinstall the air conditioner compressor housing bracket, tightening the bolts to 18 ft-lb.
Add the rear timing belt cover, tightening those bolts to 74 in-lb. Insert the timing belt
pulleys, the timing belt and the adjusting strut and power steering drive belt, tightening those
bolts and the nut to 32 ft-lb.
12
Install the air conditioning compressor, the alternator drive belt and the front exhaust pipe
bracket to the No. 1 oil pan, torquing the bolts to 15 ft-lb. Add the front exhaust pipe, the
undercover, and the right fender apron seal.
13
Connect the negative battery cable and fill the engine with fresh oil. Start your Toyota Camry
and look for leaks in your working area.

2002 grand am does not leak after driving, but I wake up in the morning to a huge puddle of oil.


SOUND LIKE FRONT CRANKSHAFT TIMING COVER SEAL OR REAR MAIN OIL SEAL LEAKING START ENGINE LET IT IDLE SEE IF YOU SEE OIL DRIPPING UNDERNEATH CAR LOOK FOR OIL LEAK AT TIMING COVER OR AT REAR OF ENGINE WHERE REAR MAIN SEAL LOCATED. CHECK ON TOP OF ENGINE INTAKE MANIFOLD AREA WHERE OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR IS.O - RING AT THE OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR WILL CAUSE LARGE OIL LEAK.OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR IS LOCATED WHERE THE DISTRIBUTOR USE TO BE LOCATED.KEEP EYE ON OIL LEVEL IN CRANK CASE.KEEP PLENTY ENGINE OIL ON HAND UNTIL YOU FIX.I WOULD FIND LOCATE PROBLEM QUICK AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE OIL LEVEL GET TOO LOW ENGINE WILL SEIZE UP LACK OF OIL..

The oil pump assembly used on this engine is mounted at the front of the crankshaft. The oil pump also retains the crankshaft front oil seal.
  1. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  2. Remove the timing belt cover and timing belt. Refer to the timing belt removal and installation procedures in this section.
  3. Remove the crankshaft sprocket.
  4. Remove the oil pump mounting bolts (5), and remove oil pump assembly. Mark mounting bolts for proper installation during reassembly.

To install:
  1. Clean the oil pump and engine block gasket surfaces thoroughly.
  2. Position a new gasket on pump assembly and install on cylinder block. Make sure correct length bolts are in proper locations and tighten all bolts to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  3. Install the crankshaft sprocket and timing belt. Recheck engine timing marks.
  4. Install the timing belt covers. For more details, refer to the timing belt cover installation procedures.
  5. Install the accessory drive belts.

Where is the water pump


Water Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 5VZ-FE Engines Fig. 1: The water pump is located on the front of the engine block, behind the timing cover 93163p92.jpg
Fig. 2: Once the retainers are removed, pull the pump away from the block 93163p97.jpg
Fig. 3: Scrape any remaining gasket material from the block before installing the new pump 93163p98.jpg
Fig. 4: Water pump mounting bolt locations 93163p88.jpg
Fig. 5: Front view of the water pump and thermostat housing 93163p99.jpg
WARNING
This procedure requires the removal of the timing belt. This is an extensive procedure requiring precision work, particularly at assembly. For more information, refer to Timing Belt Removal and Installation. Do not attempt to remove the belt without consulting the procedure; extreme engine damage may occur.

  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the timing belt. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Timing Belt Removal and Installation.
  3. Remove the idler pulley.
  4. Remove the thermostat.
  5. Disconnect the oil cooler hose from the pump.
  6. Remove the seven bolts and the tension spring bracket and then remove the water pump. To install:
  7. Clean all parts well. It is good practice to carefully clean all threaded openings, especially those exposed to coolant to remove rust and scale so at assembly, an accurate torque reading is obtained. This is important since gasketless applications like this depend on even clamp loads from the fasteners to avoid distortion and leaks. Remove any old sealer (Toyota calls it packing) from the pump and mounting area of the engine. Keep oil off the mating areas.
  8. Apply Formed In Place Gasket (FIPG) sealer to the pump-to-block mating surface and then tighten the bolts marked A in the illustration to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm). Tighten those marked B to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm). NOTE: The parts must be installed within 5 minutes of application of the sealant. Otherwise you must remove and reapply the sealer.
  9. Connect the oil cooler hose.
  10. Install the thermostat with a new gasket.
  11. Install the idler pulley.
  12. Install the timing belt.
  13. Install the drive belts and adjust the tension.
  14. Refill the cooling system and check for leaks.
2RZ-FE and 3RZ-FE Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. If equipped with an air conditioning compressor or power steering pump drive belts, it may be necessary to loosen the adjusting bolt, remove the drive belt(s) and move the component(s) out of the way.
  4. Remove the fluid coupling with the fan and water pump pulley.
  5. Remove the water pump. To install:
  6. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
  7. Install the replacement water pump using a new gasket.
  8. Install the water pump pulley and fluid coupling with the fan.
  9. Install the removed engine drive belts.

My toyota vienta 3VZ-FE 1996 - oil leak onto exhaust


Hi,

That engine will leak oil from

- cam cover gaskets (rear one drips on the exhaust)
- camshaft end seals
- distributor shaft o-ring (appears on top of transaxle housing)
- oil filter bracket to block o-ring seal (drips on front bank exhaust)
- crankshaft nose oil seal (have done with timing belt change)
- rear main seal (expensive, leave it be)

I have a whining noise at at speeds over 30 mph and in park if u rev the engine also at the same time no a/c


You need to inspect your Serpentine Belt. That is the ribbed belt <see diagram below> that is driven by the engine's Main Pulley at the crank (generally, lower part of the engine). The smooth side usually drives the water pump, while the ribbed side drives the alternator, power steering pump, and air conditioning compressor. Inspect this belt and look for obvious signs of oil (slick stains) that have dripped onto the belt from another part of the engine. If you have oil stains, then you will need to get the source of the oil leak fixed before replacing the belt because you would otherwise be throwing money away as a new belt would soon experience problems due to the oil leak. If no oil leak, check for obvious wear on the belt by looking for BIG cracks that are penetrating through to the smooth side of the belt, cracks parallel to the smooth side of the belt, or chunks missing from the ribbed side of the belt <see diagram below, though the bottom diagram shows cracks perpendicular to the backing that are normal/acceptable; Parallel cracks soon become chunks missing from the belt>

badbelt2.gif If your serpentine belt is cracked or has chunks missing, it needs replacement.

Water loss through engine


yes cams are at front with the timing belt. not like motorcycles in the middle. I havent had many problems with them where I am. But a water loss in the engine is serious. If your sure the loss is internal then you have to tear down.
