Oil Pump Replacement Cost
Low oil pressure can be caused by a plugged oil pick-up screen or leaking seals in the engine. It is important that these items are inspected before replacing the oil pump.
The oil pressure should be checked before condemning an oil pump. A good quality repair shop will perform an oil pressure check and record the readings on the repair order.
When replacing the oil pump, some vehicles may require an oil pan gasket and/or timing cover gasket.
These parts will be an additional cost to this estimate.
Low oil pressure can be caused by using the incorrect type of engine oil. Be sure to check with your owners manual to ascertain the correct type for your engine and climate.
