On most cars, unless yours is an exception, the engine has to come out to pull an oil pan off- "running hot" is not due to the oil pump- you can try finding out why your engine is running hot, first- a hot engine could be thinning your oil, stressing your oil pump, (and everything else), and, indeed, could be destroying everything inside your engine- yes, repairing cars IS expensive-
