engine oil pump on 2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty

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?

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.
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_brand_names=Forda shop here
no its not the same thing get your truck out of there asap what that means is that you have a bad IPR get it replaced
