The Cost of Replacing an Oil Pump

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man

Hi Bob,
I have a Ford F150 2003 model with 65,000 miles. I was told that I need an oil pump and it would be $1200. That seems pricey. An idea what it should cost?

The oil pump is located in the oil pan. In order to change it, you need to remove the oil pan. However, on some vehicles, the oil pan can not be simply removed. Usually there are suspension members in the way. So, you either have to remove the suspension member or remove the engine. The price of the pump is relatively low and the actual install process is quite easy. However, this is one of those parts where getting to it is a lot of work!
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
