Replaced oil pan screen.
Now I looked it up that the oil pump doesn't actually pressurize the oil pressure. Is there some tools I use to restore the pressure?
Do you

Good evening,

Yes, the oil pump does produce the oil pressure in the engine.

If you have an issue with the pressure, it could be the pump itself or it could be main or rod bearings causing the low pressure issue.

So once I top the oil off, I should be able to start it an the pressure will be restored?

Assuming the repair was correct, yes. If there is no oil pressure, then the screen was not the issue.
