I would remove the belt first. It probably needs to be replaced anyways. Better to do it now , than pay a towtruck later.

Where Is The Oil Pump Located>? And How Do I Replace The Oil Pump


Here you go. BIG Job!

http://www.ehow.com/how_4506339_replace-oil-pump-ford-taurus.html

The oil pump is an essential piece of equipment that keeps your Ford Taurus running. It lubricates the engine by keeping the oil circulating. Without this lubrication, the engine wouldn't run. An oil pump is usually located in the oil pan. If you want to change the oil pump and replace it with a new one, roll up your sleeves and get ready for some dirty work.

How to Check if an Oil Pump Is Bad

Things You'll Need




  • Wrench



  • New oil pump



  • New A/C bolts

Remove Old Oil Pump


  1. Drive your Ford Taurus up onto ramps or lifts so you have room to work as you pull out the oil pump. You could also use a jack, but make sure you brace the front wheels so they don't roll. In addition, set the emergency break firmly into position so the car doesn't roll.


  2. Take the engine out and put it on an engine stand then remove the upper intake manifold. Take off the valve covers then the accessory drive belt.


  3. Remove the power steering pump and the alternator. The water pump is the next component to remove, followed by the A/C compressor and bracket.


  4. Rotate the pulley shaft clockwise to remove the crankshaft pulley. It has left-handed threads.

  5. Pull out the oil pan and the oil pump screen and tube. Take off the front cover and the timing chains and remove the crankshaft timing gears. Finally, remove the oil pump, taking note of the bolts you removed and in which order you remove them.

Insert New Oil Pump


  1. Install the new oil pump and put the bolts back on in the same manner you removed them. Tighten these bolts to 71 to 106 in-lb.


  2. Reinsert the crankshaft timing gears, timing chains and front cover. Put the oil pump screen and tube back on, torquing the bolts to 71 to 106 in-lb, and torque the nut to 15 to 22 ft-lb.

  3. Put the oil pan back in, then the crankshaft pulley. Install the A/C compressor and bracket using new bolts for the A/C. Add the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, the accessory drive belt, valve covers and upper intake manifold.


  4. Replace the engine back into your Ford Taurus and fill the crankcase. Start your engine and look for leaks in the area you were working.

How do i remove an oil pan off a 1998 ford 2 wheel drive with out pulling the engine


Remove the bolt that runs thru the engines motor mounts, not the ones that attach it to the engine block. Take a 2x4 and put it on a floor jack so the jack won't damage the front pulley. Raise the engine with the floor jack to get enough clearance to manuver the pan around the steering components once thw oil pan bolts have been removed. Watch the fan blades don't hit the radiator.

How do i replace oil pump on 01 monte carlo ss


If the oil pan will clear the steering components without jacking up the engine then drop the pan and unbolt the oil pump. You'll need to get a new pan gasket for the oil pan too.

Now the oil pump proceedure in print:
Instructions
Remove Oil Pump
1
Drive your Toyota Camry up onto ramps or lifts so you have room to work as you pull out the oil pump.
You could also use a jack, but make sure you brace the front wheels so they don't roll. In addition,
set the emergency break firmly into position so the car doesn't roll.
2
Drain the oil out of your engine and disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the fender apron
seal and the undercover, the front exhaust pipe, and the front exhaust pipe bracket from the No. 1
oil pan.
3
Remove the following components in order: the alternator drive belt, the air conditioner compressor,
the power steering pump drive belt and the adjusting strut, the timing belt along with the belt
pulleys, the rear timing belt cover, the air conditioning compressor housing bracket, the No. 2 oil
pan and oil strainer, as well as the No. 1 oil pan and baffle plate.
4
Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor and remove all nine of the oil pump bolts. Remember where
each bolt was located.
5
Take out the oil pump body by reaching in and grasping between the oil pump and main bearing cap.
Remove the O-ring from the cylinder block then remove the plug, gasket, spring and relief valve
from the oil pump body.
6
Finish by taking out all nine screws, the pump body cover and the driven rotors. Clean all
components to remove contaminants.
Install the Oil Pump
7
Install the new oil pump by slipping it into the same spot where the old one was. Reconnect
the following: the driven rotors, the drive pump body cover, all nine screws, the oil pump
relief valve, the spring, the gasket and the plug to the oil pump body.
8
Insert a new O-ring onto the cylinder block and add liquid sealant to the oil pump and the
engine block. Put the oil pump back on the engine block.
9
Add and tighten the bolts over several passes, keeping the torque even. The 10 mm head should
be 69 in-lb. and the 12 mm head should be 14 ft-lb.
10
Reconnect the crankshaft position sensor, torquing the bolt to 69 in-lb. Insert the No. 1 oil
pan and oil strainer and the No. 2 oil pan.
11
Reinstall the air conditioner compressor housing bracket, tightening the bolts to 18 ft-lb.
Add the rear timing belt cover, tightening those bolts to 74 in-lb. Insert the timing belt
pulleys, the timing belt and the adjusting strut and power steering drive belt, tightening those
bolts and the nut to 32 ft-lb.
12
Install the air conditioning compressor, the alternator drive belt and the front exhaust pipe
bracket to the No. 1 oil pan, torquing the bolts to 15 ft-lb. Add the front exhaust pipe, the
undercover, and the right fender apron seal.
13
Connect the negative battery cable and fill the engine with fresh oil. Start your Toyota Camry
and look for leaks in your working area.
