Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Oldsmobile Alero 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
I have a 1999 olds alero, 3.4 liter, 6 cylinder. I am not getting any oil pressure. So far I replaced the oil pump in the oil pan. The hex drive shaft which drives the oil pump does not look worn. I turned over the engine to see if the oil pump 'drive' shaft turns. It does not turn. The oil pump 'drive' shaft is firmly engaged with the 'upper' drive gear. I even tried to turn the oil pump 'drive' shaft with a socket & ratchet to see if the drive gear was stripped. It didn't turn. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?
