    Well, I have found all of them. To remove the pan is necessary to remove one part of exhaust system and pull the engine up... Had I know that I wouldn´t have gone for it...

    Bringing this post back

    You guys are awesome. I had the rattle/no oil pressure in my Ex recently and after reading your posts, I feel more assured that I can do this on my own. I just thought it was the oil pump but after reading here, I decided my best bet would be to take care of the entire balance shaft/jack shaft tensioners. Thanks for the volumes of info:chug:.
