1996 Oldsmobile 98 Q&A
1996 Oldsmobile 98 Question: Where is the oil pump located on a 3.8 engine?
The oil pump is in the timing cover and is accessible from outside the engine. It can be rebuilt. The oil pick up assem. is inside the oil pan, either one can cause low oil pressure. Pressure should be checked with a manual gauge to rule out bad oil pressure switch(sending unit). - pushrod
maybe it is in the oil pan - Tomiko
You should have your oil pressure checked with an oil pressure gauge...good oil pressure = replace sensor; bad oil pressure = tell your mechanic...You already had someone look at it? what did he say? - your.mechanic
