Section 3.3 Oil Pump

Section 3.3
Oil Pump

The lubrication system has a rotor-type oil pump located in the front of the crankcase and driven by a gear directly meshing with the crankshaft gear.‪

Oil is directed through an oil pressure valve to the full-flow filter and through appropriate oil passages machined in the crankcase to the main bearing carriers, camshaft bearings, and to the turbocharger.‪

Oil jets located on the bearing carriers lubricate and cool piston pins, connecting rod-to-piston, and the internal area of the pistons. An external oil line allows proper lubrication of the rocker arms. If the oil filter is clogged, a bypass valve located in the oil filter cartridge will allow the oil to circulate through the engine.‪

Section 3.3.2.2
Inspection of Oil Pump

Inspect the oil pump as follows:‪

  1. Visually check the oil pump rotors for scored, gulled, or pitted surfaces.
    1. If the oil pump rotors are scored, gulled, or pitted, replace the component. Refer to "3.3.3 Installation of Oil Pump" .
    2. If the oil pump rotors are not scored, gulled, or pitted, reuse the component. Refer to "3.3.3 Installation of Oil Pump" .
  2. Measure the clearance between the rotors and the oil pump housing.
    1. If the clearance between the rotors and the oil pump housing is not within 0.130 mm (0.0051 in.), replace the component. Refer to "3.3.3 Installation of Oil Pump" .
    2. If the clearance between the rotors and the oil pump housing is within 0.130 mm (0.0051 in.), reuse the component. Refer to "3.3.3 Installation of Oil Pump" .

Section 3.3.3
Installation of Oil Pump

Install the oil pump as follows:‪

  1. Install the oil pump to the cylinder block using three Allen screws. Torque to 27-28 N · m (20-21 lb · ft). See Figure "Oil Pump Location" .
