Oil pump not raing pressure

If this is a 3.0 liter V6 the oil pump is driven directly by the crankshaft. This pump is located directly behind the timing belt sprocket on the crank. To access it you'll have to remove bolts from the front portion of the oil pan and remove, for the most part, everything off the lower front portion of the motor. If you feel comfortable a good shade-tree mechanic you should be able to do this, expect a full weekend though. While doing this go ahead and replace timing belt and belt tensioner too. In truth I can't imagine this pump failing. They are very simple yet very rugged. Are you able to put another gauge on a oil line to test true oil pressure? Curious to what problems you are having?
