    Comments about Melling Stock Replacement Oil Pump:

    The sealing surface that lies against the oil pan gasket was left as cast. I was sceptical about installing it, but had no option to complete car in time for monday morning. Engine built oil pressure quickly ( cranking it over without crank sensor connected ) so internally I hope it is good. Never had a problem with Melling products before - hope this is not the first.

    • Q:

      Is the oil pan the only thing that has to be removed to replace the oil pump?

        It depends on what engine the vehicle has and what drives the oil pump but for step by step instructions i recommend that you go to your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and purchase a repair manual.

        No. The upper and lower timing belt covers, the timing belt tensioner/idler will have to loosened, the timing belt will have to be removed, the crankshaft pulley and then the crankshaft timing belt sprocket will have to removed. After all that the oil pump mounting bolts will be able to be removed, and then the pump can be removed. And remember, YOU HAVE already removed the oil pan before any of the items I have listed have been removed. Now on to a few more details. I add the following only because you sound like you do not have a lot of mechanical experience. If you do I apologize. AFTER you remove the timing belt covers you must remove the crankshaft pulley, and then put the bolt back in the crankshaft and turn it and align the crank and cam sprocket timing marks. Then loosen the tensioner bolt and remove the timing belt. DO NOT MOVE the crankshaft/cam until you reinstall the timing belt. MAKE SURE you clean the oil pump pick up tube/screen. AND GET a automotive manual.
