Oil pumps are internal, they are inside the oil pan, at the bottom most point of the engine. But before you replace the oil pump, recognize that oil pumps are designed to produce a stream of pressurized oil into a set of oil lines that distribute pressurized oil throughout the engine to bearings and sometimes hydraulic lifters. A pressure relief valve in the oil line prevents the oil pressure from going too high by releasing oil if the pressure starts to go above the pressure setpoint. But that is not typically the problem. Most low oil pressure conditions are caused by worn bearings that result in too much of a gap through which oil escapes the pressurized lines. If the gap between the bearings and the crankshaft is too large, oil will rapidly leak out, dropping oil pressure. While it's always a good idea to replace the oil pump when you rebuild an engine, it usually isn't necessary to replace an oil pump at any other time. In fact, if the oil pump fails, the engine is usually trashed almost immediately, then you MUST replace the oil pump. May I suggest that you change to a heavier grade oil before you attempt to solve a low oil pressure problem by replacing the pump. If you've been using 5W15 oil in the engine, change to 10W30 or even 15W50 if you can find it. Just try an oil with higher numbers to see if the oil pressure problem will be somewhat improved. The auto manufacturer has suggested an oil for that engine but understand that the suggestion is based on a NEW engine, not one that is worn. Once the engine ages you need to find ways to keep it running that don't involve a lot of expense.

How do you obtain starion?

I actually have a starion. My cousin was trading me a vaporeon and his game had some problems from a gameshark action replay. When he traded it to me it said you got Vaporeon take good care of it blah blah blah. But when I went to go get it and switch it in for my first Pokemon it said,"Starion". But when I was looking on the internet for Starion nothing came up. So I expected it to be a glitch, with vaporeon and someother. But I didn't expect it to be that missingo Pokemon from red version. If you need anything else on it just post. P.S. He looked like a fuzzy white vaporeon with a black out line(also lineing some features on his body.)

Why does the interior brake light blink?

could be a problem with the sesor in the emergency brake. a bad connection there could cause the light to blink with the vibration of the car running On some cars, the brake warning light will blink if the parking brake is set, and you drive... it could be a failed parking brake switch, assuming the brake is not applied. It is supposed to blink to get your attention. One car that does this is the Mitsubishi Starion, there are probably some others, too.
