Porsche Crest 944 Oil Pump project

How long does it take to change the oil pump on a 84 944?

What is the cost to do it? Anyone know the book time for this kind of project?

Thanks for the help guys.

My first question is why do you need to replace it ... ?

and second you have to drop the oilpan to get at it......

I would find it easier dropping the engine and doing a complete overhaul........

but what happened that you have to swap it out ?

and that oil pump is 3-4 hundred bucks..... and add all the other parts you will need/want to replace on your way there.

I kinda have to ask the same question as AE...

The oil pump is painfully simple on the 44. A one gear jobby. Seems what "goes wrong" with it is a groove developing in the gear that mildly interfears with operation.

I "mistakenly" removed mine while in the process of a front seal job. Amazingly enough I did not damage the front oil pan seal even though I didn't drop it for the job. (BTW-NOT recommended).

If I knew the pump was bad I would do the oil pan gasket AND the front oil seals, belts, rollers if any of those things were in question. I did them all one job at a time over the past year and should have just done the whole shebang.

Answer - once the pan is dropped and the front belts/pullies/covers / crank seal is remove, the actual pump is a piece of cake
