The pump housing usually has a plastic viewport about half way up on side of pump
Oil should come to middle of viewport
Use 20 or 30 weight non detergent oil > SAE20 SAE30

The engine uses 10-W-30 and should come about half way up dip stick

Where Is The Oil Pump Located>? And How Do I Replace The Oil Pump


Here you go. BIG Job!

http://www.ehow.com/how_4506339_replace-oil-pump-ford-taurus.html

The oil pump is an essential piece of equipment that keeps your Ford Taurus running. It lubricates the engine by keeping the oil circulating. Without this lubrication, the engine wouldn't run. An oil pump is usually located in the oil pan. If you want to change the oil pump and replace it with a new one, roll up your sleeves and get ready for some dirty work.

How to Check if an Oil Pump Is Bad

Things You'll Need




  • Wrench



  • New oil pump



  • New A/C bolts

Remove Old Oil Pump


  1. Drive your Ford Taurus 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. Take the engine out and put it on an engine stand then remove the upper intake manifold. Take off the valve covers then the accessory drive belt.


  3. Remove the power steering pump and the alternator. The water pump is the next component to remove, followed by the A/C compressor and bracket.


  4. Rotate the pulley shaft clockwise to remove the crankshaft pulley. It has left-handed threads.

  5. Pull out the oil pan and the oil pump screen and tube. Take off the front cover and the timing chains and remove the crankshaft timing gears. Finally, remove the oil pump, taking note of the bolts you removed and in which order you remove them.

Insert New Oil Pump


  1. Install the new oil pump and put the bolts back on in the same manner you removed them. Tighten these bolts to 71 to 106 in-lb.


  2. Reinsert the crankshaft timing gears, timing chains and front cover. Put the oil pump screen and tube back on, torquing the bolts to 71 to 106 in-lb, and torque the nut to 15 to 22 ft-lb.

  3. Put the oil pan back in, then the crankshaft pulley. Install the A/C compressor and bracket using new bolts for the A/C. Add the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, the accessory drive belt, valve covers and upper intake manifold.


  4. Replace the engine back into your Ford Taurus and fill the crankcase. Start your engine and look for leaks in the area you were working.

I have a ANNOVI pressure washer and I can not seam to get the engine apart from the pressure pump. All bolts are removed and the bludy thing will not come apart. The lock nut on the drive is not even


There may be no good news for you. Once those hollow shaft pumps seize to a engine shaft, they can be real buggers. In fact, they can be impossible.

But before you give up and completely destroy the pump to remove it from the shaft -- the mounting flange has threaded holes that are designed for taking the pump off. The bolts that you removed go through unthreaded holes on the pump flange and into threaded holes on the engine. On the pump flange, there are also either two or four threaded holes. So you take the same bolts and screw them into the threaded flange holes -- the idea being they will contact the engine as you screw them down and push the pump outward.

BUT: this does not always provide a fix. That flange is made out of cast aluminum so it is not very strong. It breaks quite easily. So your best shot at getting the pump off this way is to go slow. Put some oil on the bolt threads, so they will turn easily. Try to bring them up to equal pressure and then use a meium hammer to "ping" somewhere. Remember though, the entire pump casing is made out of this cast alluminum and is very brittle. It is easy to knock a hole in the pump with a hammer. But alternating with some persistent pinging and then tightening the bolts a little more (tighten/ping/tighten/ping) is the shot you have. When tightening down on the bolts - equal pressure on each side is very important. And I can't over emphasis....just a little bit at the time! And if you can (if there is room) pinging on the engine shaft a git can help too.

If it seems to move a little, but then gets even more resistent, oil the engine shaft and knock the pump back down and then start over going in the off direction. This is because once you get some oil under the hollow pump shaft it usually will free up.

From someone who knows how frustrating it is, I hope this helps you. If it does, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

Have 10000 miles on my bike does the shaft drive oil need to be changed or what?


Final drive assemblies on motorcycles generally cost over $1000. They tend to show signs of dirt after only 5000 miles. Having driven shaft drive motor cycles for over 30 years I usually change my 85/90 Hypoid gear oil at every second engine oil change. It is never very dirty but if taken into the sun light will show some fine metal chips (nothing to worry about). I highly recommend using synthetic Hypoid gear oil. It will cause less friction and the final drive will run at a much cooler temperature. One quart of Hypoid gear oil will change the rear end oil 3 or 4 times so it is good, cheap preventive maintenance. Simply take off the large fill cap, place a pan under the small drain bolt at the bottom of the pan,remove the drain bolt, drain the oil, put the drain bolt back in, and fill the final drive to the bottom of the larger fill hole (usually a quarter to half cup of oil), then replace the large cap being careful to only snug it tight enough to seal in the oil. If you over tighten it, it is designed to break! Be sure to check the owners manual on the exact amount of oil to use. Honda has changed the fill technique for some of the newer models. With a higher fill hole on some newer models you may be over filling the final drive, so you may have to measure the amount. Too much oil will cause waste and may cause over flow out the top vent. Happy Trails.

I need to replace oil pump on a 1988 ford bronco 2


Remove oil pan, making sure to drain oil first. Remove oil pump attaching bolts. Lift off oil pump and withdraw oil pump drive shaft.
INSTALLATION;
Prime the new oil pump by filling either the inlet or outlet port with engine oil. Rotate the pump shaft to distribute oil within the pump body. Insert oil pump drive shaft into block dwith the pointed end facing inward. The pointed end is closest to the pressed-on flange. Place oil pump into position with a new gasket and install attaching screws. Tighten the screws to 15-22 foot pounds of tourque. Clean and install the oil pump inlet tube and screen assembly with a new gasket. Tighten the bolts, then replace the oil pan.
Oil Pan;
Clean of any debris and replace gasket. Fit the oil pan bolts and tighten in two steps. Start from the rear/left hand side and tighten first, then tighten the bolt in the front/right side. Alternate from rear to front, working from back to front and front to back.

Oil pump replacement, location of it, nomenclature


Remove oil pan and pump is bolted to back main bearing cap. But this is most likely not the problem. This engine is known for cam bearings spinning out of the block and cam shaft breaking inbetween #3 and 4 cam journals, oil pump is driven off the end of camshaft, engine runs very rough and makes all kinds of noise when this happens, cure is a new engine. to check for broken cam shaft removed front valve cover, have some one start or crank the engine, the 2 rocker arms on the drivers side will not move at all, most likely there will be silver metal dust laying in the low spots of the head where oil puddles up.
