First and foremost you have to check your DIP STICK oil level. If the oil is within normal oil level there should be no problem with your engine lubrication. If the oil warning light comes on only if you step on the brakes, there must be a short in the brake light system and the oil pressure sending unit. trace the wires in the oil press sending unit if it frays with other electrical lines. trace the lines of the brake switch which should be in the brake pedal under the dash. try wiggling it gently. OR unless somebody worked on the electricals before.

You either have a malfunctioning oil pressure sending unit, possibly damaged by the oil change, or, low oil pressure. Replace the oil pressure sending unit, and if the lamp continues to glow, you may need some internal engine repairs.

I have a 1996 toyota corrolla......there is a rapid clicking noise everytime i try to start it! what should i do?

Does it start, does it run and have a rapid ticking. Need more info.sounds like its your lifters in the motor. try checking and adding oil first. When your oil level runs low the oil pump cant pick up the oil therefore not sending it to higher parts of the motor.

I'm put oil for Mator 20/50 and for break dot 4 and I dont known if good or not for toyota corrolla 93

That oil is for tropical regions so it's a little too viscous if you live on a cold country or in winter - recommended is 10W40. The recommended brake fluid is DOT 3. Remove the one you have now and put in the correct one.

Open the drivers door and there is a plate riveted to the pillar below the latch.It has a bunch of info on it including the VIN number. The trans code will be listed there. Its helpful to know the possible codes you are looking for since it won't be obvious with all the numbers and letters listed there.
