Oil pump removal EA 82
Posted 08 January 2013 - 02:34 PM
I read alot of the info on the "Tick Of Death" so I think this is likely the oil pump starting to go. Next oil change Im going to add some automatic Transfluid to see if it helps the lifter, but Id like to prepare to change the oil pump... so here are my questions.
1. Where can I buy an oil pump outside of the Subaru dealer? I could not find one on ebay or at my local parts store. What is a good price?
2. Does anyone have a procedure for replacing the pump? Any tricks or tips would be appreciated.
Is the oil pump replacement related to the timing belt replacement process? I replaced the timing belts at 46K only because the water pump & radiator needed to be replaced.
Thanks in advance

My intent is to follow the thread already posted here about rebuilding/resealing the pump.

Feel free to message me with any questions.
Oh and def. just replace the pump instead of just resealing it. They can be had pretty cheap and it's peace of mind. My .02
