Having problems with your 2000 Chevrolet Silverado ?
Where is the oil pump located on 5.3 vortec 2000 silverado? How do you change?
Located on the front of the engine behind the timing cover. can be done with lost of paitents without droping pan. hint. set a strong magnet against the bottom of the oil pan by the fron side of it so if you drop the oilpump pickup tube bolts the stay right there so you can reteive them with out removing the pan. you can go to autozone.com create a users account then add your truck to the list of cars you own and will be able to access a free online copy of a repair manual to ease your work some hope this helps,.
Well this is a common problem with the 5.3 and we have learned that most cases the engine can be saved if it is caught early and how long it ran with low or no oil pressure. These engines dont last as long as most v-8 engines today but when they are running they are one of the best out there. These engines have a poor oil pump design in my opinion and would be better served with the older style and easyier to service.
