Question about 1996 Toyota Starlet
Too expensive to rebuild, either find a good replacement engine if your car is in good condition or get another car.

The only positive way to check if the oil pump is working and therefore there is correct oil pressure is to temporary install a non-electrical oil pressure gauge that uses a small copper tubing to sample the oil/pressure and drive a needle on the gauge. Depending on temperature, idle should register about 20+psi. Having done this and confirmed that indeed there is sufficient oil pressure then it may simply be a defective oil sending unit. Otherwise, no or low oil pressure at idle is an indicator that the engine needs to be opened up again.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Complain to Toyota, they are fixing some of these car for free. Here is the explanation and the list of problem vehicles.
Oil sludge or black sludge is a solid or gel in motor oil caused by the oil gelling or solidifying, usually at temperatures lower than 100 degrees Celsius. Sludge can be a major contributor to Internal combustion engine problems, and can require the engine to be replaced, if the damage is severe. Sludge is usually caused by the presence of water in the oil, and can accumulate with use. Ways to minimize sludge production and accumulation includes performing frequent oil changes, using synthetic oil, and following the manufacturer's engine maintenance routine.
The following engines were reported by the Center for Auto Safety and/or their manufacturers to have a problem with sludge accumulation:

The tire and that is on it, we'll have the size listed on the side wall. It usually looks like 185/60 R14 or 195/75 R13 or some variation on the numbers but basically in that format. The question is, what size did it come with, what size does it have now, what size do you want to be on there. A seasoned tire store veteran can tell you all of the different variations on size that will fit your car. By a you can select a tire size and type based on ride comfort, winter or wet traction, high speed performance etc. If the tire pressure will also be listed on the sidewall usually in pretty darn tiny letters. Generally 35 PSI that is the Max. 32 usually gives a comfortable ride. air compressors that you can plug in your series cigarette lighter are less than 20 bucks and have a gauge.

There is two bolts that hold the window slider thing in place. One just below one of the door handle nuts inside the door and the other is on the outside of the door (on the inside of the car). Once these are removed it enables you to move that mech out of the way to get to the other bolt.
I undone the 3 latch screws to give me a bit more movement in the rod that connects to the handle too.
This should give you enough room to get to that other nut and clip the rod into the handle once installed.
Once handle is installed simply just slide the window mech back up into position and bolt back in.
