I have a 2 wheel drive f-450. The dealer told me in order to replace the high presure oil pump he has to remove the engine to get the pan off is that true?

    I looked up the info for a 2001 F-350 and it shows 11.7 hours to remove the oil pan with does include engine removal, But you might be able to save some money by having a independent shop handle this and you can get a few estimates from http://repairpal.com/directory?address=98370&car_bran... shop here

    Whew, lots of problems with this one: The high-pressure oil pump is located on TOP of the engine and does NOT require engine removal. The low-pressure oil pump even does not require engine removal- it is located behind the harmonic balancer in a housing (gerotor style). The shop manual does state that engine removal is required for oil pan removal, but all the technicians that I know “sneak” it out by lifting the motor on a jack stand. Please, ask more questions as to the exact nature of the required repair before authorizing this work. Alarm bells are ringing in my head.
