Disassembly and Assembly

Nissan Maxima. INSTALLATION

  1. Oil pump housing
  2.  Outer rotor
  3.  Inner rotor
  4.  Oil pump cover
  5.  O-ring
  6.  Regulator valve set
  7.  Regulator valve
  8. Spring
  9. Regulator plug
  10.  Oil strainer

CAUTION: Before assembly, apply new engine oil to the parts as shown.

DISASSEMBLY

  1.  Remove the oil pump cover.
  2.  Remove inner rotor and outer rotor from oil pump housing. CAUTION: The outer rotor has directional vanes in relation to the rotation of the oil pump shaft. Note the outer rotor vane direction for assembly.
  3.  Remove oil strainer from oil pump housing.
  4.  After removing regulator plug, remove spring and regulator valve.

INSPECTION AFTER DISASSEMBLY

Clearance of Oil Pump Parts

  • Measure clearance with feeler gauge.
  • Clearance between outer rotor and oil pump body (position 1).

Nissan Maxima. INSPECTION AFTER DISASSEMBLY

  • Tip clearance between inner rotor and outer rotor (position 2).

Nissan Maxima. INSPECTION AFTER DISASSEMBLY

  • Measure clearance with feeler gauge and straightedge.
  • Side clearance between inner rotor and oil pump body (position 3).
  • Side clearance between outer rotor and oil pump body (position 4).
  • Calculate the clearance between inner rotor and oil pump body as follows:

Nissan Maxima. INSPECTION AFTER DISASSEMBLY

  1. Measure the outer diameter of protruded portion of inner rotor (position A).
  2.  Measure the inner diameter of oil pump body with inside micrometer (position B).

    (clearance 5) = (inner diameter of oil pump body B) - (outer diameter of inner rotor A)

  3. If out of specifications, replace oil pump assembly.

Regulator Valve

Nissan Maxima. INSPECTION AFTER DISASSEMBLY

  1.  Visually inspect components for wear and damage.
  2.  Check oil pressure regulator valve sliding surface and valve spring.
  3.  Coat regulator valve with engine oil. Check that it falls smoothly into the valve hole by its own weight.

    If damaged, replace oil pump assembly.

Regulator Valve Clearance

(Clearance 6) = D (Valve hole diameter) - E (Outer diameter of valve)

Nissan Maxima. Regulator Valve Clearance

If it exceeds the standard, replace the oil pump assembly.

CAUTION:

  •  Coat regulator valve with engine oil.
  •  Check that it falls smoothly into the valve hole by its own weight.

Assembly

Assembly is in the reverse order of disassembly.

  •  Assemble the outer rotor in the correct vane orientation to rotation as noted during disassembly and the inner rotor with the groove on the oil pump cover side.

CAUTION:

  •  Do not reuse O-ring.
  •  Before assembly apply new engine oil to the parts as specified.
