2001 Toyota Avalon Repair Question
Toyota Avalon Oil pump Problem
If you checked it with a mechanical pump and that is the result, it sounds like a bad pump.
but is a new pump that mean i have to get the new pump like
I would recommend checking the oil pump. That would be my first guess based on your description. Other than that, you could have a worn out engine (bearings) that could cause the pressure to be low or even the pick-up tube on the oil pump could be plugged.
you mean take out the oil pump
If you have no pressure, you have to.
if the oil pump bad what is a good brand to buy?
I always try to stay with OEM parts.
I THINK J and N MEANT IN THE BEGINNING TO CHECK PRESSURE WITH A MECHANICAL GAUGE---SCREWED INTO THE HOLE THE SENDER IS IN NOW
(NOT CHECK IT WITH A "MECHANICAL PUMP" AS HE MISTAKENLY SAID)
I GOT MINE ON A PLASTIC TUBE----I CAN RUN IT UNDER THE HOOD OR THRU A HOLE IN MY FIREWALL
YOU CAN BUY A "UNDER DASH" UNIT AND USE IT TEMPORARY LIKE MINE----OR YOU COULD MOUNT IT PERMANENTLY (IF YOU GO THIS ROUTE--PICK OUT ONE YOU LIKE IT'S LOOKS!)
