The oil pump on that engine is pretty easy to access and replace, since it's right there on the timing cover. I believe I wouldn't try to mess with replacing just the pressure valve, but I would replace the whole oil pump, pressure valve and all.

nothing, its just terminology why A pressure relief valve is a safety device to prevent over pressure in such things as compressor receivers. A pressure reducing valve drops the pressure to the requirements of the user or tool. Such as a demand valve on scuba gear.
