Oil Pump Fits 91-08 Ford Aerostar Ranger Mazda B3000 V6 OHV 12v VULCAN. The oil pump is the heart of the engine it pumps vital lubricant and supplies pressure to every moving part. The pump is required to provide 3 to 6 gallons of oil per minute while also maintaining system pressure. Most oil pumps are driven off the camshaft or distributor shaft. The pump itself typically consists of two gears in a close-fit housing. When the gear teeth come out of mesh, they leave a space, which is filled by oil drawn through the pump inlet. Oil then travels to the space between the gear teeth, where is it forced through the teeth into an oil passage, creating pressure. If your oil pump isn’t working properly, it won’t be long until your engine becomes an oversized paperweight. A failed pump can lead to low oil pressure, lack of lubrication, and eventual engine failure. Be sure to have your engine oil pump replace with aftermarket replacement oil pump as soon as it starts to give you trouble.
