1997 Ford Explorer Question: estimated cost to replace the oil pump



Visitor, 5.0L V8, Grayslake, IL, March 10, 2010, 14:39

The oil pressure is beginning to fluctuate and a mechanic suggested this may be the oil pump beginning to fail. What is the estimated labor time and cost to replace the oil pump on my 1997
explorer with 5.0L engine and full time four wheel drive?

    Before you do that I would try to hook a manual gauge and check the oil pressure and make sure you dont have a faulty switch
