Recently I ran over something and put a huge dent in my oil pan, which I think has damaged my oil pump or is impeding the oil flow. No leak but as I continue to drive, my coolant temperature slowly rises nearing 120C and my oil pressure slowly gets lower (stays at 2 on the gauge). No known issues with cooling system (new water pump, thermostat, etc.) Engine always stayed around 85C.

Question: Can oil pump be replaced with removal of oil pan only or is this going to be a major project?

Any experience with this would be appreciated before I rob a liquor store to pay:).

Thanks and have a Happy Thanksgiving and Joyful Holiday Season.
