Removal, check of a state and installation of the oil pump


Components of assembly of the oil pump


1. Remove the engine from the car and install it on the suitable stand.
2. Shoot a gas-distributing belt, its intermediate videos and a pulley of a bent shaft (see the Section Removal, check of a state and installation of a gas-distributing belt and cogwheels of the GRM drive).
3. Remove the sensor of provision of a bent shaft (CKP).
4. Give a bolt of fastening of a guide of the probe of measurement of level of motive oil to left heads of cylinders and remove a guide.
5. Remove an oil filter, the oil cooler and an arm of the filter from a forward part of the block of cylinders, previously having disconnected a hose from the oil cooler and I will corrode conductings on the oil pressure sensor switch.
6. Remove the pallet of a case and, if necessary, a maslozabornik (see the Section Removal and installation of the pallet of a case of the engine).
7. Give 8 bolts of fastening of the oil pump and remove it from the block, trying not to damage their interfaced a surface. Throw out laying – for installation it will be required new.

The oil pump fastens bolts of the different size – do not mix them at installation!

8. Turn out a stopper, remove a sealing ring and make dismantling of the reducing valve (address an illustration above).

The spring of valvate assembly is compressed rather hardly, protect eyes and hands!

9. By means of the big screw-driver with a crosswise sting turn out eight fixing screws and remove a back cover of pump assembly and take pump gear wheels.
10. Scratch out all traces of sealant and material of old laying from the interfaced surfaces of the pump and block of the engine, then wipe surfaces with the rags moistened in acetone.



1. Wash out all components in solvent, then check them for existence of signs of excessive wear and mechanical damages.
2. Examine the rubbing surfaces of components of the reducing valve, estimate a condition of a valvate spring. In case of need make replacement of the valve assembled.



1. Lay in a pump housing the conducting and conducted gear wheels marking towards a cover.
2. Fill cavities in assembly by technical vaseline and establish a back cover. In a diagonal order strongly tighten screws of fastening of a cover.
3. Oil components of the reducing valve pure motive and establish them on the regular place.
4. Impose a pillow of RTV sealant 3 mm wide on the interfaced surface of the pump, be not overzealous: sealant should not get in maslotok and bolted openings (address an accompanying illustration). Installation of the pump has to be complete within five minutes after sealant imposing.
5. Lay a new sealing ring in the block.
6. Achieve the correct introduction of the leading gear wheel to gearing with a pin of a bent shaft and install the pump on the regular place.
7. Screw fixing bolts on the former places and tighten them in a diagonal order with the required effort (address an accompanying illustration).
8. Installation of the remained components is made as it should be, the return to an order of their dismantle. Tighten fixture with the required effort.
9. Add necessary amount of engine oil, start the engine and check it for existence of signs of development of leaks.
10. Double-check the level of motive oil.
