Asked by for the 1996 Suzuki Sidekick
the oil pump is on the front of the engine on the crank behind crank pully timming cover and belt and timming belt pully/cog parts would include timming belt oil pump and seal kit water pump timming belt oilpan gaskit 8v note you can not use a gaskit if you have a crank sensor 16v and the job is complex and by no account small 4x4 is evin worse if you get a manual they lie the tork #s are all wrong in every book find the #s online the crank bolt should be 94 ftlbs if it tells you 40 something the numbers are outdated
