im in need of replacing the oil pump pulley seal. it was suggested that i also replace the o-ring that goes between the oil pump body cover and the main oil pump part. can the oil pump body be removed without removing the whole pump? also, since some of the bolts are used to hold both the oil pump body cover and the to the housing to the motor, will this cause future leaks? i dont want to open a can of worms. many thanks :)

Oil pump o-ring

I had a bad oil leak from the front of my engine. I replaced timing belt, cam, crank, oil pump shaft seals and water pump. When I put it all back together the thing still leaked I thought I would have to take the entire oil pump housing out which requires dropping the pan. After looking closer at the manual I realized that you can take the shaft part of the oil pump out with out taking out the entire oil pump housing off. Its just a few bolts and there is this lumpy boot shaped little rubber o-ring (not an o shape but called an o-ring) behind it that gets all dried and cracked. The part was like $16 bucks at the dealer and they knew exactly what I was talking about when I started to describe it. I would definately replace this if you are doing all the belts and seals. Hope this helps.

Reading your question again

No, this will not cause future leaks between the housing and the block and pan. The oil pump bolts are short and only go into the housing and not all the way through to the block.

thanks mr. bond, i hope this is where my leak is coming from. but on a good note, i take take off and install the timing belt in about an hour - blindfolded. these are the last two seals around where the leak is coming from.

"i take take off and install the timing belt in about an hour - blindfolded."

Is that with reassembly too?
