Default Changing Timing Belt etc. What about Oil Pump?

Hi Everyone,

Doing the timing belt maintenance including all the other things usually replaced in preventative maintenance.

Is it easy or worth it to put in an 11mm oil pump at this point? I'm at 100k and no problems oil related.

The only reason I am considering it is for future builds and setup.

Many Thanks,

You don't need that oil pump and you don't need to change it during that maintenance action. Going with a bigger pump is when you build a motor only.

Don't need the pump, but it would be a good idea to change out your oil pickup

nothing is too obvious !

but yes those are on the list.

It's a sad time to hit 100k, kind of feels like the car isn't new anymore

If it were me, since you're right there, I'd check the tip, side, and case clearances to make sure they are still within the service wear limits. Not a bad idea to check the free length on the pressure relief spring too.

If/when you build the motor, that is when you should consider another pump.

Thanks KillerB

I'm going to ask my local trusty mechanic at this point to work on this. I have the manuals and guides but a mistake will prove costly

I did mine recently too, nor did i have any previous problems with it so i didnt change it and nothing has gone wrong so far. Haven't heard of anything going wrong with the oil cooler anyway.
