Question about 1986 Toyota Hilux 2200
No oil feed to tappets. Oil pressure normal but no oil through push rods to tappets. Oil channel from oil filter into engine seems to be OK because air passes through

replace the pcv valve. If it is not working it will allow pressure to build up in the crankcase. this will cause leaks everywhere.

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.

if you have just bought the car change the oil and the filters asap on the grounds that the oil and filters may have not been changed for quite a while also change air and fuel filters also and grease any steering and tail shaft joints check brake fluid and water levels also and for any leaks around brakes gearbox and differential then every 5000km change oil and every 10000 change filters and spark plugs start with 4liters of oil let settle check level and keep topping up until close to full mark fill oil slightly under than over too much oil will build up pressure and burst oil seals in motor the more expensive the oil the better the quality its a bit like scotch whiskey best of luck glenn.......

The oil pressure sending unit is a sensor with an internal diaphragm, if the internal diaphragm is damaged , or the line to the diaphragm is blocked you can get this kind of fluctuation on the oil pressure gauge.
The oil pressure value must be read by installing a mechanical gauge near to the oil pressure switch and checking the pressure.
If pressure is ok, replace the sending unit. If there is a real pressure drop, check the oil pump.
If you still get fluctualtion after replacing the oil pressure sending unit, replace the oil pressure gauge.

Under the engine in the front you will see an aluminum cover.There is a square hole that fits a 3/8 ratchet remove this first.The new filter comes with a drain adapter that snaps in the hole under the cover.This lets the oil in the housing drain.Then take a oil filter cup wrench or a big channel lock to twist of the larger portion.Then change the filter and o-ring and reinstall.Make sure the o-ring on the square drive cover is there also
