HI,

Nothing easy about this oil pump. It is 8.5 hours labor to replace and takes me in a shop with a lift and air tools about 6 hours. The engine has to be lifted some to drop the oil pan for this job AND the timing chains have to come off, so the front part of the engine comes off as well to do this job. If you are doing this at home and no lift or air tools, I would plan on it being a weekend job.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
