How do you change an oil pump in a jeep liberty , 2005, 3.7 L
Hello welcome to JustAnswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you. This isn't an easy job replacing a oil pump on a 3.7.. Here are the directions:


  1. Remove the oil pan and pick-up tube.
  2. Remove the timing chain cover .
  3. Remove the timing chains and tensioners .
  4. Remove the four bolts, primary timing chain tensioner and the oil pump.



The entire front of engine, timing chains, valve covers, oil pan will all need to be removed in order to replace the oil pump which is mounted behind the timing chain on the crankshaft.



Is this something you would want to repair?

The light is off now and is idling fine did this earlier & when I drove it the light came back on & was tapping again what should I do


Before I went thru with all the hastle of replacing the oil pump, I would remove the oil pan and look at the strainer for any debris.. If the engine has alot of carbon deposits it will break loose and stop the oil pump strainer.. If stopped up clean it out and clean oil pan.. If the oil pump pickup is clean I would replace the oil pump..
