        Comments about Melling Stock Replacement Oil Pump:

        I installed this pump because I was getting a check gauges indicator and low oil pressure at idle. It does seem better now (staying in normal). I know I have a broken mount now while putting it on I saw it. It maybe all the vaseline that I used to prime it though, so we'll have to see. Built just as stock but with larger gears.

            A:

            Hi Kenny, I'm happy to help you! The pressure relief valve is located near the intake manifold. Remove the gas cap, then open the hood and locate the fuel system relief valve (near the intake manifold).

            Glad, I could be of help! Lubricate pump gears prior to pump installation. Remove spark plugs, disable fuel and ignition and free spin engine with starter in 20 seconds, then burst.

        • Q:

          Hi, I have a 1998-Ford 150,w/V6. I am having a low oil pressure issue when idling at traffic lights and sometimes while driving. I am going to change the oil pump. Is it really necessary to change the oil screen as well? I am assuming the oil pump is externally located on this truck. How hard of a job is this? I'm pretty mechanically savvy and a very hands on type of person. I am going to do this job. Can you please give me some basic install instructions. Thank You.

            A:

            Hi Robbie, good question! It is always better to replace the oil screen when replacing the oil pump. Instructions to replace the oil pump: Remove the oil pan drain plug and drain the oil into a drip pan. Dispose of the old oil properly, according to your local laws. Remove the oil pan. Clean the mating surface and scrape away any bits of gasket from both the pan and the engine block. Remove the oil pump support brace bolts and the bolts holding the pump to the block. Remove the old pump and pickup tube assembly. Prime the new pump with oil before installing. Fill the pump through the inlet and turn the shaft until oil spurts out of the outlet. Re-attach the pump to the block with the two bolts removed earlier. Use the torque wrench and tighten to 22 to 32 foot-pounds. Make sure the pickup tube bolts are tightened to 24 to 30 foot-pounds of torque. Install a new oil pan gasket and re-install the oil pan. Use the torque wrench to tighten the 1/4-inch bolts to 84 to 108 inch-pounds. Tighten the 5/16-inch bolts to 108 to 132 inch-pounds. Fill the oil pan with 6 quarts of new oil. Check for leaks around the oil pan.

            The spring that comes with this Melling Oil Pump - part# M246 is an oil pressure relief spring.

            A:

            Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
