Ditch the HV pump a good stock pump will do fine.My gues is your oil press is on the lower side.

If all the engine oil passages are unostructed and clean, you will have to try a lower volume oil pump. Some high performance engines are painted internally with special paint to reduce friction and smooth the down the oil flow down back to the pan.

I have a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe and I accidently put motor oil in the A/T oil spot. What should I do?

Don't run the engine at all. If it was started, the transmission pump will have pumped the motor oil all through the transmission-go have it professionally flushed. If the engine was not started, drop the transmission pan to drain the fluid, and get a new transmission filter. Put it back together and run the engine until the transmission fluid gets hot. Then change the fluid and filter again. After this, monitor the transmission fluid dipstick. If any traces of more motor oil in the pink fluid, do the drain and change filter a third time. (buy a case of transmission fluid-each drain and change will take about 6 quarts.)

How to replace oil pump on 1985 ford 3/4 ton truck with small v8 motor

your can either pull the engine to do it, or if you can get or have enough clearnce to drain the oil and remove the oil pan you can do it with the engine still in ,i have done it both way's , eaither way the pan has to come down or off to get to the oil pump. if you don't have enough room when leaving the engine in you can take the motor mount bolts out and use a block of wood and gently jack the engine up to get the room you need to pull the pan down and to get in there and do the work.

Washer spins slowly and will not drain

Sounds like the motor might not be turning the tub at high enough RPMs

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 Oil Pressure reads 40 PSI at Idle and drops to 0 at higher rpms. I just changed the Oil Pressure sender/ Same Problem

If you got the same oil pressure reading with the new and old sending unit, more then likely your oil pump pick up tube is clog up, remove oil pan and clean or replace pick up tube also replace pan gasket.Goodluck.

Losing Oil Pressure in Dodge Ram

I have a 1999 dodge ram with a 5.9liter. Come to a stop and bam no pressure. Replaced sending unit twice. First after market, then mopar. Problem is still there. Replaced pump. Problem was still there. So I talked to tons of dodge mechanics, and this is the real problem. Who ever said that these engines are none for sludge is just reall really stupid. BOTTOM LINE ON THAT FACT. Sludge comes from neglect...
Dodges oil pump makes 8-10 Psi at idle. Always mechanically test that no MATTER what. But the sending unit needs 12-14 psi to read it. So what happens is the engine warms up, and the oil thins. Then you come to a stop, and rpms are low, and your not producing enough psi for the sending unit to read it. So your truck is fine. But if the chime is getting to you. Install a high volume pump. I returned the stock one, and got the high volume pump. I will bet if you change your oil every 3,000 miles you will not see sludge at all. If your dodge has high miles replace valve cover gaskets, becauce the high volume pump may cause the gaskets to leak. Whoever said ther none for sludge just has no love for a dodge, or is a moron mechanic that is stuck in his ways. High volume pump is the fix $85.00 plus pan gasket. If you have a 4x4 you can do it yourself. Drop the starter. Remove torque converter cover. With a 13mm socket with a variety of extentions, and removing a dozen bolts. Do it yourselfer will complete it in 4 hours....

No oil presure and noisy lifters

Jack the vehicle up so you have enough room to work on the truck.
Then use an oil catcher pan,,and let the oil plug go,,drain out all of the oil,,,then remove all of the oil pan mounting bolts, leaving one on each side MIDDLE,, so the pan doesnt fall on your head.
Then carefullt remove the last two bolts while supporting the pan.
When you have the pan down, and out of the way,,you shoul dbe able to see the two oil pump mounting bolts up near the crank shaft above the pickup tube.
Remove the two bolts,,then carefully take down the oil pump.
Be sure to install the new pump and gasket correctly, and ,make sure the oil pump drive shaft (which also drives the distributor) is connecting properly.
Then re-install the oil pan,,,with a new gasket,,make sure the gasket does not slip away from the seams,,and only torque the oil pan bolts to around 14lbs per sqaure inch,,,better still check your manual to find proper torque specs.
Now,,you can fill with fresh oil,take it down off the jack stands,,and start the vehicle,(you can pull the valve cover off,,or if you can see the lifters),,make sure the oil is getting to the top end of the motor.
and then Congratulations,,you are done!!

Oil pressure

the oil pump pickup could have come off the oil pump, but u could fell it inside the pan through the drain plug, that is possible, but not very likely, try installing an aftermarket high volume oil pump, most are adjustable for either high volume or high press, you want volume.
