Ford Mazda 3.2 2.2 gear oil pump kit

 Ford Ranger Mazda BT50 upgraded gear oil pump to suit 5 Cylinder 3.2 P5At, 4 Cylinder 2.2 P4At 

From 2011 all 5 cylinder 3.2 P5At, 4 Cylinder 2.2 P4At Ford ranger Mazda bt50 engines use vane oil pumps. It has come to our attention that these vane pumps are prone to 2 types of failure. The first most common failure is failing to self-prime when the oil is changed.  Oil changes must be done and the engine started within 5 minutes. If you don’t restart the engine asap than an air lock occurs in the vane pump. The air lock prevents the vane pump form self-priming. The second type of failure is the oil pump vanes brake. This results in oil pressure failure.  If the engine is not shut down within seconds Chaotropic engine failure will occur within 20 to 30 seconds.  You will then be looking for another engine and upgraded gear oil pump.
