Having problems with your 1996 Ford Windstar ?
The engine has more of a tapping than I am comfortable with. Not quite a knock. I would only tow it instead of drive. Problem is it is not worth spending much money on since it is a 1996 model Windstar. This is a request for a second opinion on the difficulty of replacing an oil pump on a 1996 Ford Windstar. The oil pump is external. I have replaced engines and do most of my work. I just do not want to start a project that will "blow up" in my face and I cannot find my Haynes manual.
The oil pump is not external, its internal, and its not going to fix it. it has bearing problems.
Oil pump is internal.I had a collapsed valve lifter in mine put in heavyer oil and STP oil treatment worked.
