OIL PUMP | REMOVAL, INSPECTION AND INSTALLATION
NOTE: The various engines installed in the models covered by this manual incorporate three different types of oil pumps. The 1.5L engine utilizes a gear assembly that is rotated by the crankshaft. The oil pumps on all other engines are turned by the timing belt.
(Refer to illustrations 14.3, 14.4, 14.6a, 14.6b, 14.6c and 14.7)
- Remove the timing belt and crankshaft sprocket (see Section 7).
- Remove the oil pan (see Section 13).
- Unbolt the oil pickup tube (screen) from the bottom of the pump housing (see illustration).
- Remove the pressure regulator plug, spring and plunger (see illustration).
- Remove the timing belt tensioner (see Section 7).
- Remove the oil pump-to-block bolts noting the different lengths and locations of the bolts. Carefully separate the front case from the engine (see illustrations).
- Detach the cover from the rear of the case (see illustration) and remove the inner and outer oil pump gears.
- Remove the crankshaft oil seal from the front case (see Section 8).
INSPECTION (Refer to illustrations 14.10a, 14.10b, 14.10c, 14.10d, 14.10e, 14.10f and 14.10g)
- Clean all parts thoroughly and remove all traces of old gasket material from the sealing surfaces. Visually inspect all parts for wear, cracks and other damage. Replace parts as necessary.
- Install the oil pump outer and inner gears and measure the clearances (see illustrations). Compare the clearances to the valves listed in this Chapter's Specifications.
Measure the free length of the pressure regulator spring and compare the measurement to this Chapter's Specifications. Replace parts as necessary. Pack the pump cavity with petroleum jelly and install the cover.
Tighten the bolts to the torque listed in this Chapter's Specifications. Note: Be sure to install the gears or rotor(s) with the mating marks in the correct place (see illustration).
DOOR | REMOVAL, INSTALLATION AND ADJUSTMENT
(Refer to illustrations 12.5a and 12.5b)
- Remove the door trim panel. Disconnect any electrical connectors and push them through the door opening so they won't interfere with door removal.
- Place a jack or stand under the door or have an assistant on hand to support it when the hinge bolts are removed. Note: If a jack or stand is being used, place a rag between it and the door to protect the door's painted surfaces.
- Mark around the hinge-to-door bolts so you can return the door to its proper adjustment when installing it.
- Remove the hinge-to-door bolts and carefully lift off the door. Installation is the reverse of removal.
- Following installation of the door, check that it is in proper alignment and adjust it, if necessary, as follows:
- Up-and-down and forward-and-backward adjustments are made by loosening the hinge-to-body bolts and moving the door, as necessary. A special cranked tool may be required to reach some of the bolts (see illustration).
- The door lock striker can also be adjusted both up-and-down and sideways to provide a positive engagement with the locking mechanism. This is done by loosening the retaining screws and moving the striker, as necessary (see illustration).
