Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.
The oil pump doesn't have to be replaced, you can't get to it easily.
What should be done however absolutely is to exchange the water pump also. In about half of all cases the water pump will leak within the first 5-10k miles. Then all the work has to be done again.
Therefore the water pump should always be renewed.
I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
