    Note: It may be necessary to rock the pump counterclockwise so the teeth of the gear can properly align with the crankshaft drive gear.

  5. Install the suction pipe and tighten the fasteners 25 N·m (18 lb·ft).
  6. Install the bracket and the dipstick guide tube on the suction pipe. Tighten the suction pipe bracket bolt 50 N·m (37 lb·ft).
  7. Install the oil pan with a new gasket.
  8. Install the vibration damper. Refer to "1.9.2 Vibration Damper Installation" .
  9. Fill the engine with the correct amount and appropriate type of clean engine oil. Do not overfill.


    To avoid injury before starting and running the engine, ensure the vehicle is parked on a level surface, parking brake is set, and the wheels are blocked.‪



    Diesel engine exhaust and some of its constituents are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.‪

    • Always start and operate an engine in a well ventilated area.
    • If operating an engine in an enclosed area, vent the exhaust to the outside.
    • Do not modify or tamper with the exhaust system or emission control system.
  10. Start the engine and check for leaks.
  11. Check the engine oil level and add oil if necessary.
