I changed my oil pump on a Chevy Silverado HD and I don't have oil pressure Now


The relief valve in the pump is stuck open or missing the spring. Is the plastic coupling for the drive in place? Oil pressure should be 30 psi. or better. Also check the pick up tube for looseness in pump. Air leak will not prime the pump.

How do i prime the engine after rebuilding 3.1


What kind of engine is it? As far as the pistons go you should have used motor oil or the like on the rings when you installed them. If you're talking fuel and it's a fuel injected engine, you shouldn't have to prime it as the fuel pump pressurizes the system and shouldn't need any other source.

Had the pressure bypass valve malfunction on my 2.5 jeep put new oil pump in and with 45lbs. Oil pressure motor still sounds dry of oil,what gives?


it's not priming.
that grease trick helps.
is this some china pump off fleabay or a real jeep pump..???
did you do the below.:
1: the grease sure. and then prime the filter and the gallery behind the
filter.
2: With fuel and spark defeated, and spark plugs removed then with pressure gauge attached to sender port, did you crank it to get max pressure (my guess is this is the step you are posting on.)
i never start any engine, (after majors) unless i get #2 to work first the number 3, which is top end oil checks.

the pump is no priming.
In pro shops they make up a priming tool. so new engines are never
started, 1st time dry, ever.
one way is just a tank full of oil and shop air, and 2 valve.


maybe the new pumps relieve valve is stuck open, fully.
i rebuild my own classic engines, after all that work !!! i never
ever, skip these steps.
and for 100% sure, good pressure, and top end oiling on any major work.

Ran out of engine oil and after i refilled, it wont start


I the engine ran completely out of oil, the engine has been cooked and is probably locked up from the friction between unlubricated metal moving parts. Also may have spun bearings which means the main or rod bearings stacked on top of each other causing the engine to lockup. If you ran the engine without oil until it quit you will probably need a new engine.

How to replace oil pump in 03' GMC sierra 2500HD 4x4 6.0 gas engine


don't forget to disable the engine and crank it till you have oil pressure it only takes running it a minute without pressure to destroy the rod and main bearings be sure to use the correct oil when changing the pump consult a service manual Industry practice was to use assembly lube to prime the oil pumps on installation but with the use of more and more aluminum and lighter oils some engines manufacturers do not recommend priming the pump this way i suggest immerse the oil pickup tube in clean oil and spin the pump shaft till you draw oil to the top of the pump

Wont start unless manually primed


Turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine

You should hear the fuel pump priming for about a few seconds then shutting itself off.
If not hear replace the engine oil pressure switch
The 3rd wire to that switch is the pumps prime switch lead.
When the engines oil pressure is reached the computer will shut that circuit off and turn on the fuel pump relay
If you hear the pump prime the relay maybe at fault instead

Oil pump removal oil pressure


I need to know what year model Sportster you're working on. I know the book says you can change the oil pump without removal of the engine from the frame but it ain't that easy. Let me know exactly what year model you're working on. You may NOT have to pull the pump.

Are you certain you have no oil pressure? Pull the spark plugs and remove the oil filter. Spin the engine with the starter and see if oil pumps out of the oil pump adaptor. If it does, you have oil pressure and the oil pressure switch is lying to you. If your bike is equipped with an Evolution engine, 1986 or later, it will have hydraulic tappets. If you indeed do not have any oil pressure, the tappest will rattle badly.

Good Luck

Just replaced a 1998 catera engine now have no oil pressure was told i had to "prime the pump" how do i prime the oil pump?


The best way to prime the pump hoping that you havent ran the engine to long without oil pressure
is to remove the oil gauge switch ORoil light switch on the engine and get a connector with the correct thread to screw into the block and fit a hose to it and to a 1/2 ltr oil can pump oil in as hard as poss and then turn engine over IN REVERSE(Backwards) 3 times and then (pumping every time) refitswitch and start it should be ok....
