Oil Pump Removal

My oil pump seems to be pumpin less oil and my pressure is not that good. I would like to replace it with a heavy duty one. I heard you have to take the engine out to get to the sump. Please tell me that aint true coz if it is shit. What other ways can i take it out. How have you guy taken yours out. thanks

You can lift the engine without taking it out to do it but it is not a fun way to do this job. Make sure you loosen the engine mounts as they are otherwise likely to break when you lift the engine. You need a hoist to lift the engine. Getting the pump out isn't too hard but getting it and the sump back on is really fun, fun, fun !!!!

And it's much easier and cheaper to replace the oil pressure sender unit 1st and that's more likely at fault.

Easier to pull the whole engine but it will take more work. What Ford recommend is that you remove the K frame while supporting the engine with an engine lifting crane. This also requires a bit of work in terms of removing the steering rack, tie rod ends, front break lines and lower suspension arms etc.


Fun fun fun? Well the quick as dirty is lifting the engine loosening the sump without removing the engine or sump (leave it resting on the K frame) and manipulating the pump in and out; an awkward job. I have done this and I can tell you that while it works, there are times during this exercise that you will contemplate pulling the engine out instead.

Also get a hand gauge to check the pressure; even if the sender unit is good the wiring, gauge etc might also be faulty. It not a job to do unless you really need to.
