Hello if you have low oil pressure then yes its possible the oil pump is faultythe issue dloing this in the car is being able to remove the sump? this bulletin shows whats involved to replace the pump http://www.w124performance.com/service/w124CD1/Program/Engine/103/18-2100.pdf I'd say it is possible but you will have to lift the engine slightly to be able to withdraw the sump
