SOURCE: i have a 19991 toyota previa. the oil level light

If the light is flashing there could be problems with the electrical wiring. The easy places to check are at the bottom of the oil reservoir (pass. side under the hood) and at the driver side of the oil pan under the vehicle where the wires plug into the sensor. If this doesn't resolve the problem then it isn't easy, and testing the circuit will have to be done by someone who knows their electrical "stuff." Even the pump motor for the reservoir could be out.

If the Oil Level Sensor light stays on and you have already checked to make sure the oil level read on the dipstick under the driver side seat engine compartment is reading adequate, then you have a sticking oil level sensor float. Replacing the oil level sensor is easy, but extremely expensive ($485 in 2012). You can try to clean the plastic spool that the float slides on, but the problem is usually that it has swollen or expanded (likely from heat in the oil). One could try to sand it down but this would be difficult. I have made a new part out of nylon 6/6 on my lathe and replaced the plastic spool so far with excellent results. I'm considering selling it as an aftermarket part when I see if mine works. It would be a lot less than $485 dollars from Toyota. Or possibly have people send it to me and I'll repair the sensor myself.

Transmission


There are two types of transmissions in 1991 Toyota Corolla. Manual Transmission and Automatic Transmission.
1. Manual Transmission:
The transmission oil is checked through a level bolt which is provided to the left CV joint side in the middle of transmission. To check the oil level, park the car on a level floor, remove the level bolt with 22 mm or 24 mm spanner. If the oil starts coming out of this hole the oil level is considered OK. If not, top up the oil till it starts coming out and tighten the bolt. The recommended manual transmission oil grade is 75W/ 90W and total capacity is 2.4 Litres.

2. Automatic Transmission:
Warm up the engine, park the car on level floor, pull up the hand brake, gear lever stick in P, keep the engine start, let the radiator fan come on, take the auto-transmission stick out, wipe it with a clean dust free cloth, insert it in, again take it out, keep the stick in horizontal position and check the oil level. At operating temperature the auto-transmission oil level should be at upper level (Hot). If not, add oil to mach the mark. The recommended auto-transmission oil is Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Dexron II, and total (drain and refill) capacity is 1.4 Litres.

Does 1999 toyota camry come with an oil level sensor


Hello. Welcoem to FixYa.

Unfortunatly, the answer is no.

Toyota does not fit oil level sesnors to any of its passenger automobiles.

The only Toyota product that did have an oil level sensor installed was the Previa model.

When i shift into Drive it does nt move right away 10 seconds pass bumps into gear drives great" Camry 1991


1st check fluid level in trans. If o/k then suggest a trans oil filter replacement. If the filter is clogged it will starve the trans oil pump. Another cause would be a faulty check valve inside the trans that stops oil from leaking out of the torque converter back into the pan. Check this by checking the oil level after overnight and see if the level is about 2-3 litres over. Nope this helps Moe
