Once I have taken off the oil pan and see the oil filtering screen, the oil pump is located inside the engine at a location in which i cannot get to it. What is the best solution of getting the oil pump dismantled?

The oil pump is located just inside the oil pan if you remove your oil pan you'll be able to see the oil pump sending unit. The oil pressure gauge switch is located just above the oil pan on the engine block beneath tge cylinder head. Hope this helps.
pump isb behind the timing belt cover and is on the timing mechanism. all this has to be removed to change the pump.here is the engine diagram, that could be your problem. oil flush can sometimes fix this. and do a few oil changes with cheap oil and filters until it is clear.
1 yes the pump could be bad, but it is not likely.
2 yes it is in the oil pan.
3 yes you can change it without pulling the engine, though it is not easy.
Most common problem for your oil pressure reading to be going away, is the oil pressure sending unit(sensor) it is located next to the oil filter, check and replace if neccessary this sensor first and see if your oil pressure returns to normal. If not then you may have a pump problem. Hope this helps, let me know.
Oil pumps on these do not go bad. The oil pressure sensor could be bad giving you a false reading. If not the only other thing could be is a clogged up oil pickup screen inside the oil pan. also get a delco pf47 filter
On every reciprocating engine I have ever seen in a vehicle, the oil pump is located at the lowest point of the engine and submerged in oil in the oil pan which is the lowest part of the engine and is mostly rectangular in shape.
Once oil has circulated to the moving parts it flows by gravity back to the pan to be pumped again through the oil filter and into the engine.
The location of the oil pump is located inside the engine oil pan. The oil pan being on the very bottom of the engine. This would be a fairly difficult job for a beginner. Highly suggest obtaining a manual with specific directions. Disconnect battery, Make sure to remove intake plenium for clearance when jacking engine after disconnecting engine mounts, and losen only on the rear transmission mount. It will also be necessary to disconnect radiator connections hoses and transmission lines if automatic, on the safe side many people just remove the radiator all together to avoid damageing it with the engines bottom pulley when lifting/jacking engine. The engine will have to be lifted enough to facilitate the removal of the oil pan. Caution, sometimes the oil pump/ pick up screen tube assy. will have to be disconnected before the pan will clear these can just be dropped into the pan. Also, it is not uncommon to have to rotate the crank by the front pulley in order to get the cranks throws to clear the pan as well. Remember going back together you may have to slide the oil pan in place first then put the new oil pump in. This will be tight work and you may do a lot of swearing! Caution again never work in these close areas without supporting the engine on some wooden blocks! I have used short pieces of 4x4's in the past, make sure the engine is securely supported. Remember when going back together to retighten everything you loosend make a list. Before doing all this work please do an oil pressure check and not just rely on the gauge as an indicator to change the oil pump. Also, if an engine has not been serviced regularly the engine oil pan could have a build up of sluge blocking the oil pump's pickup screen therefore decreasing the oil pressure. God Bless
oil pump in engine is like heart in human body ! do not run engine with out fix it .ck the oil pan,oil screen for mud and tar, oil filter for clogs, the oil pump is located in the L side of engine behand the timing cover next to the water pump
Well it could be bad oil pump or worn connecting rod bearing/main bearing or even worn journal or clogged oil ports.The system bypasses the filter if its clogged so its not the filter. Location of the pump in front cover where the chain is and its spun by the crankshaft. It right behind the crankshaft pulley/damper. Its not a very difficult job but its not that easy, its alot of work. Good Luck
