how to replace oil pump on 4 liter motor 4x4 ford explorer
details of what to take off and if motor mounts have to be removed to get oil pan off and what to look for. and what should be replaced with pump
the engine would need to be lifted up or removed to pull the pan... The oil pump is not hard to remove and replace once the pan is off the engine...I pulled the pump out of my 99 Sport right after I bought it thanks to massive sludge and a dead oil pump... When you pull the pump, check the driveshaft and make sure it is not broken...If something jammed in the pump teeth, the driveshaft can twist like a pretzel and break rendering the pump useless...
please mark answer as helpful and best to help my reputation please thank you
