The cost of replacing an oil pump on the 1997 Camaro Z28 varies slightly by location. On average with labor this replacements costs between 250.0 and 300.00.

On the left side of the engine above the oil pan

take it to a mechanic, or buy a hanes manual.

Its in under the alternator and next to the oul filter

the oil level sensor is located on the oil pan. it is screwed into the pan next to the oil filter.

on the bottom of the engine on the passengers side next to the oil pan

Begin by removing the oil from your 1999 Chevrolet Camaro oil pan. Remove the oil pan retaining bolts. Remove the oil pan gasket and clean the surface. Reverse the process to install the new oil pan.

I have a 1994 Camaro z28 and from what I've read these lt1's take between 4.5-5 quarts of oil with an empty oil filter.

decals, emblems, suspension, engine and exhaust system, and the Z's had all the gauges for oil , water , and amps.

It will take Dextron II or Dextron III. If your changing the trans filter, it will take about five quarts.

It requires 5 quarts with the filter change. Use only the weight recommended by the manufacture. Generally it is written on the oil filler cap.

The 87 comaro if stock takes GL90 gear oil , if its a posi you will need a special additive Good luck

It depends on whether or not it is a complete System Drain or only the Pan. Also a Manual or Automatic.

The oil weight needed for a 1985 Camaro Z28 will depend on the type of driving and the outside temperature. If the car is to be driven in summer, the weight of the oil should be 10-40. In winter, switch to a 10-30 or 5-30. If the car is a show car for racing, 50 weight oil can be used in the summer.

I feel sure you have checked to see that the engine has oil in it. You need to install an external oil pressure gauge, the mechanical type and check for pressure. If it shows that you have oil pressure then your sending unit is defective.

It pops into place, so you have to give it a little tug until it pops out. Then pull it out. Pop it back into place when you are putting it back. If you are talking about taking an oil reading.

No, it will not cause oil leaks.

I switched to full synthetic engine oil in 2001 and have no oil leaks on my 1995 Ford What makes you think you will have leaks? And if you think you will have leaks then why would you use synthetic? You will have no leaks that you would not have with conventional oil.

you probably have a blown head gasket. Is there any water in your oil? It easiest to tell by checking engine oil cold. If you see white or gray colored stuff in your oil it is water and that means a blown head gasket.

on the LT1 model, it is the large gold piece with the electrical connector plugged into it near the oil filter. screwed right into the pan. I would think it might be the same on the LS1.

Turn the key to the run position, not start. Depress the accelerator to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. the light should flash and then go out.
