If you are takling about the external oil tank, you don't need the pump, you need to replace the oil tank level sensor.
Common problem.

    Yes.

    You need to change the oil level sensor.

    That part is a known failure item.

The compression is the same for all cylinders(150), but when I turned motor over, water came out of #1 cylinder only. Any idea?


Sounds like a head gasket leaking water in from the cooling system. Does it run OK? Any water in the oil on the dipstick and a mayonnaise type film on the oil filler cap?

Why is it that the oil pump of my toyota previa is not lubricating


Did you prime the new pump with some engine oil? Another trick is to use some light grease to coat the pump gears so they will seal against themselves. If you primed the pump and are sure the pump is working, you may have worn out engine bearings or some internal oil leak that is keeping the oil from getting pressure.

I have a 1993 Toyota Previa. It has been leaking oil for the last few days. I have difficulty turning the wheel and at the same time it makes a wealing noise. I checked my engine, brake, and power steering...


No, this is a power steering issue. Are you certain the power steering fluid level is correct? The squeeling noise is caused by air in the power steering pump. The leak must be repaiored, usually by replacing the pump, unless it is just a leak in the reservoir.

91 previa LE, 205K miles. diving Tucson to St George, UT, 800 pound load. After 3 hours at 65-75 mph, had to slow down as engine was struggling to keep up speed. Stop for gas, and engine was "tapping"...


It is probably a oil pressure problem. If there is some sort of small blockage in an oil journal it could stop oil from flowing to the lifters which would cause the the tapping noise. at this point the best thing to do would be to try and flush out the engine with some sort of desludging agent. One thing i usualy do is drain the oil and re-fill it with atf and run it for about half an hour or an hour and then re-drain and replace with normal engine oil. transmission fluid contains tonnes of detergents and should help clean out any blockages.

Rattling Noise


The power steering pump could be going bad. The noise coming from the catalytic converter could be something as simple as a mounting bracket coming loose, or worst case something busted internally.

Toyota previa 1991


the oil should be black,brown or gold(new) with no other colors in it. shouldnt be milky or streaky. the trans fluid should be light red or semi light red.as for the engine being oily its hard to discern unless you rinse it off to metal and drive it. if you mean the oil pan has black oil on it then it may be ok.
