The oil pump is located in the pump housing inside the bell housing of the transmission case. The oil pump assembly consists of an inner (3) and outer (2) gear, a housing (1), and a cover that also serves as the reaction shaft support (6).

OPERATION

As the torque converter rotates, the converter hub rotates the inner and outer gears. As the gears rotate, the clearance between the gear teeth increases in the crescent area, and creates a suction at the inlet side of the pump. This suction draws fluid through the pump inlet from the oil pan. As the clearance between the gear teeth in the crescent area decreases, it forces pressurized fluid into the pump outlet and to the valve body.

STANDARD PROCEDURE

OIL PUMP VOLUME CHECK

  1. - FROM COOLER
  2. - TO COOLER

Measuring oil pump output volume will determine if sufficient flow to the transmission oil cooler exists, and whether or not an internal transmission failure is present.

Verify that transmission fluid is at the proper level. If adding fluid is necessary, fill to the proper level with Mopar ATF+4 (Automatic Transmission Fluid-Type 9602). The following procedure is to check oil pump output volume:

1. Using hose cutters or a suitable blade, cut the "to cooler" line off flush with the cooler inlet fitting and place a collection container under the open line.

CAUTION: With the fluid set at the proper level, fluid collection should not exceed (1) quart or internal damage to the transmission may occur.

2. Start engine and run at curb idle speed , with the shift selector in neutral.

3. If one quart of ATF is collected in 20 seconds or less, flow is within acceptable limits. If fluid flow is intermittent or it takes more than 20 seconds to collect one quart of ATF.

4. Inspect the cooler hose for damage. Replace if necessary.

5. Re-connect the to cooler line to the transmission using a service splice kit. Refer to instructions included with the kit.

6. Refill the transaxle to proper level with Mopar ATF+4 (Automatic Transmission Fluid-Type 9602).

CLEANING

Clean pump and support components with solvent and dry them with compressed air.

INSPECTION

  1. - OUTER GEAR
  2. - POCKET

1. Re-install the gears and check clearances.

2. Measure the clearance between the outer gear (1) and the pump pocket (2) . Clearance should be 0.089- 0.202 mm (0.0035-0.0079 in.).

3. Measure clearance between outer gear and crescent. Clearance should be 0.060-0.298 mm (0.0023-0.0117 in.).

4. Measure clearance between inner gear and crescent. Clearance should be 0.093-0.385 mm (0.0036-0.0151 in.).

5. Install the 9524 90º or the C-3339A Dial indicator (3) into the Scooter Block D-115-2A (2).

6. Zero the Dial Indicator (3) in the scooter block assembly on a flat surface (1) of the pump housing.

7. While applying slight downward pressure rotate the front of the scooter block side ways onto the outer gear (4).

8. Measure and record the gear height to the pump housing case clearance.

9. The clearance should be 0.020-0.046 mm (0.0008-0.0018 in.). If not replace the oil pump assembly.
