Q:will my vehicle start up with a faulty oil pump? 1989 chevy astro 4.3 Liter will not start. eliminated most causes. had very low oil pressure before it died
A:Hi Rush1981, glad to help you! Most likely the first symptom will be your engine or oil light indicator on your dashboard coming on to alert you there is a problem. Still this isn't always the case and often times the driver fails to notice the light or ignores it. Typically if the oil light is on it is an indication that the oil pressure is low. This isn't an automatic indication you have a problem with your oil pump, as there could be a leak, or your engine could be burning oil. The problem could be solved by checking the dipstick and adding oil if it is low. If the light persists you can check for these other symptoms: Low oil pressure, Increased engine operating temperature, Noise. Your vehicles hydraulic lifters are an important part of your engine's operation and it is important that they are adequately lubricated. When your engine is working properly these lifters are virtually silent, but when the flow of oil is cut off to the lifters they begin to make noise and wear unevenly. It is extremely expensive to have lifters replaced and extremely important they are properly lubricated. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.
Q:my 1994 chevy is making a knocking noise and a local mechanic told me that it could be the oil pump should i replace it just to see if that could be it and if so whats the best kind of oil to use???
A:Hi Curly, Sorry, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest you to refer your vehicle owner's manual for the exact oil specifications.

Q:I have replaced an oil pan gasket on a 92 Chevy pickup. I also removed the oil pump so that I could remove the flywheel cover for ease of preping the block for the new gasket. Do I need to prime the oil pump after reassembly before restarting the engine?
A:Yes you definitely want to prime the oil pump before you start the motor up for the first time once you are finished reassembling.
