I ran over a curb and believe my oil pan was pushed into my oil pump. Does anyone know the usual distance between the oil pump and pan on an 1987 Firebird 2.8 V6?

3/8" to 1/2" i believe anything higher and you take a chance of starving your enginge of oil on hard stops and acceleration. Just replaced my pan and pump and suggest you at least get a new pan depending how bad it is bent.

Oil pumps are relatively inexpensive. Go ahead and replace the pump. Not doing so could wipe out your engine if old one fails.
