Re: Oil Pump Failure in 2.0 Engines ??
I haven't ever heard of a TS or JTS engine with a faulty oil pump causing failure. I suspect many of the people on the honest John website have actually run the cars low on oil, but don't want to admit to it for warranty reasons. Often a car can be run low on oil and problems will not surface for a few thousand miles later, and when they do surface it just so happens the engine at that time has plenty of oil in it..
Oil pump failure is an exteremely rare occurance, although if you were to rebuild a well used engine they are often changed as a matter of course.
