Drop the pan. That usually requires that you lift the engine off the motor mounts a few inches. However, low oil pressure usually doesn't mean a bad oil pump. Typically, low oil pressure means that the engine main and rod bearings are worn. Engine rod and main bearings do not ever touch the crankshaft; they ride on a film of pressurized oil. When the bearings wear, the oil pump is no longer able to generate enough oil volume to keep the pressure up. One way to determine if it's oil pump or bearings, change to a heavier grade oil (higher viscosity number) and see if the oil pressure stays up after the engine warms up.

Can a water pump on a 1998 Chevy Suburban leak?

I currenty owne a 99 suburban and owned a 97. The leak is probably from the "weeper" hole on the bottom of the pump and if it is "leaking" then your water pump bearings are going out and you need to replace the pump. Both of my water pumps went out at 70,000 mile--cheap parts.
