Well, it depends. There was indeed a known problem with the cam bearing plate and that's what the oil pump is mounted on. Seems H-D used roller bearings instead of needle bearings on the cams and the bearing were failing. It was something like that anyway. Harley would not fix them under warranty until they failed. Instead, they lengthened the warranty out to 50,000 miles on the bearings. Whether or not this has anything to do with an oil pump problem, I don't know. You didn't say why you thought you had an oil pump problem.

Good Luck

I have a 2000 toyote sienna 3.0 replace the oil pump main beering and rod beering after engine warms up it loss all oil pursure what could be causeing this

First thing I would suspect is that the seal between the oil pickup screen is leaking when it warms up and the oil pump sucks air instead of oil. Second thought is that these engines were known for oil sludge buildup; it is possible that sludge is keeping oil from draining back to the pan sump and starving the oil pump.

Check engine oil level.
It's likely that the engine oil is becoming thinner as it expands up to temperature, and is not as easily picked up by a worn oil pump.
Daewoos are known to suffer early oil pump wear, and this is considered a common issue with this particular brand.

The air hose has oil leaking

Usually, oil in the discharge air indicates too much oil in the pump or oil too thin (in hot climate use oil treatment). If oil level is known to be correct and oil not to thin, indicates worn cyl /rings. Easy to check. Remove bolts holding cylinder to body/base of pump. Pull off cylinder with head attached to examine piston and rings. Replace parts as needed.

Stop oil presure

Do not drive it if the idiot light is on. regardless of reason, the engine is not getting proper lubrication. This is a well known problem for passats, where faulty oil pump design creates sludge that clogs up the oil lines. See if a complete oil replacement ( not just oil change), including a solvent and carter cleanup, and then replacing the oil with synthetic oil cures the problem. Otherwise, you will have to take it to the dealer for oil pump inspection, and probably, replacement.

Oil pump replacement

Engine has to be removed. You can't get the oil pan off otherwise. I'd make sure you really need a new pump!! Check your sensor, wires, dash gauge. Borrow a known good oil gauge and hook in up to see if yours is OK or dead.

The Oil Pump is located in the sump of the engine. It has a common issue with the Oil Pump Bolt, which holds the sprocket driven by a chain to the oil pump. On some models this has been known to work loose due to not being loctited. The replacement Pump Bolt has a dab of loctite. My 99 bolt was loose. You'll need a new sump seal too. Parts are about £20's worth.

No oil pressure

The oil pressure switch (also known as the oil press. sending unit) is located above the oil filter, mounted on the engine block. It is a $6 part in my area, just by chance if that's all that's wrong, I'd replace it. Hopefully it is that simple. If not, time for an oil pump? If u remove it, and crank the engine, there should be a steady flow of oil, if not then it's the pump. Good luck.

Yes you have to check your pressure with a mechanical gauge first. If the pressure reading is good replace the oil pressure sending unit. They are known to go bad, and oil pumps going bad is rare.
