good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist
it could be the pick up screen is clogged. if a pump was bad it would be bad all the time. I would try flushing the oil system first. use some sea foam in the oil and let then engine run for about a half hour. drop the oil and change it and the filter. I would do this a couple time to rid the pan of the debris that may be blocking the pick up. if that does not work, yes, the oil pan should come down for inspection
no, the oil pan can be dropped in the car
CAUTION:Assure removal of the two bolts attaching the timing cover to the oil pan, as damage to the timing cover and/or oil pan may occur.
NOTE:To prevent oil leaks at oil pan to timing chain cover, the following tightening sequence procedure must be performed.
CAUTION:The collar must be tighten using the following procedure, as damage to the collar or oil pan may occur.
