Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Daewoo Nubira 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 147000 miles

The oil pump is leaking on my car. I have it pulled and I Was reading in my manual that it says to pack the oil pump with petroleum jelly for proper priming. My question is, Is there a o-ring on the back cover so that I can pack the oil pump with the petroleum jelly? I can't find any parts breakdown for the oil pump and finding parts for the car are difficult. I want it to be done correctly. I thought that it would self prime, so I want as much information so that I can get my car running again. Thankyou

You pack the oil pump with petroleum jelly in the gear cavity of the pump.

So I don't have to remove the rear cover of the pump, just in the opening of the pump should be fine?

Thank you for responding so quickly. I will pack where the pick up tube goes until I can't get anymore petroleum jelly in.
