Melling Oil Pump Screen

Vehicle Specific

Part Number: 81-AS3
Features & Benefits

A new Melling pick-up tube/oil screen assembly provides the lubrication oil as well as protection for your oil pump from materials that find their way into the engine oil supply system. Contaminates enter your oil system via engine wear, extended time between oil changes and other internal engine sources. These contaminates can interfere with the proper oil flow and pressure spring functions resulting in engine damage and/or failure. Melling suggests that a new properly installed oil pump pick-up tube/screen be a part of every oil pump installation. Several Melling oil pump applications are offered with an oil screen included.

  • Manufactured from high quality durable materials for long wear
  • Precision engineering protects the engine from dirt and contaminants
  • Designed for long-life and worry-free performance
  • Meets or exceeds original equipment specifications

    Not in Stock?

    Ordered this part to replace the screen and oil pump on my 87 YJ Wrangler. Didn't fit because of the odd bend in the tube took it back and they ordered another one to double check and it was the same thing. The 25 degree bend in the tube instead of going straight out was causing the screen to hit the oil pan. No way this would fit. Here is my biggest complaint thought. The site clearly says the screens should always be replaced yet they didn't have one in stock in fact they don't stock it at all. Its a $22 part. If I am going to all the trouble to drop an oil pan and replace the pump why wouldn't I spend the extra to put a new screen on it? The other thing is unless you want to risk damaging it they require a special tool to install and Auto zone doesn't carry or even know about it? Granted it costs more than the new oil pump but I would have gladly paid to rent it and save the half hour it took to finagle it in the new pump. Seems like two lost opportunities for profit to me. I was very glad when they took the pump and screen back and received great customer service!

    Pros: Autozone was AWESOME about the situation

    Cons: Didn't fit, No install tool, and they don't keep them instock.
