Just a guess but perhaps you have a plugged up oil port. You might try cleaning it out... I'd try an oil cleaner additive, maybe run some seafoam through the engine. If you are a good enough mechanic to determine that only part of the engine is lubricated then I am sure you have tried that stuff all ready. so maybe you are not getting enough oil pressure? bad oil pump?

2003 yukon denali oil pressure switch pegged over the 80 psi indicator. Oil qty is good.

Sounds like a bad oil pressure sending unit.

Try unplugging it and see if the gauge drops to zero. If it does than replacing the oil pressure sending unit will most likely fix your problem.

It is not easy to see or get at but you can find it on the back side of the engine on the drivers side, kind of in between the valve cover and the intake plenum

Oil leak under driver side front

First thing i would do is degrease the whole engine, with oil leaks there hard to detect when the engine is very dirty, after you clean the engine and its free of all oil take it for a short drive when you get back home inspect the whole engine on the driver side and see where the fresh oil is coming from remember oil leaks downward and blows rearward when your driving so a leak on the valve cover in the front of the engine could eventually look like an oil pan leak after its been leaking for awhile if you still cant detect where the oil is coming from go to an autoparts store and ask them for detection dye, its a dye that you add to you engine oil and its used to detect leaks use a black light and then you can be very sure where the oil is coming from.

Where is the engine oil filter on the engine block?

Oil filter is on the drivers side, all the way back on the side of the block, close to where the transmission bolt's up to the engine block.

Toyota lucida estima 1993. What is the container on the driver side, under the bonnet, with engine oil inside used for?

normaly that would be true, except our vans have an extra oil resivewar (sorry i cant spell) under the hood, its on the passenger side of mine(battery and air filter on driver side). What it does is dump more oil into your pan if level gets old. also cycles oil from pan to res back to pan, lessens oil change visits.

How can I remove oil pan on 1991 toyota pickup 2wd 2.4 L

There are two ways to get the clearance required to remove the oil pan.
Start by draining the oil pan, after all the oil is out remove the 16 bolts and two nuts holding the oil pan on. You can use a oil pan seal cutter to break the seal or if you don't have one just use a putty knife (it okay to scratch the pan a little but do not bend the flange!) There are two strut bars under the engine that need to come out. One is a square tube about a 1.5 feet long and the other is a typical tubular strut bar, remove both of them.

Once the oil pan is loose the easiest way to get it out is to lift the engine about 2-3 inches. Start by hooking up an engine lift to the front lift point on the engine. You will be pivoting the engine on the transmission mount so you only want to lift at the front of the engine. On the passenger side undo the two bolts on the sides of the motor mount (should be 14mm) and on the driver side undo the nut in the center of the mount (should be 17mm). Now lift the engine 2-3 inches and the oil pan should be able to slide out. Unfortunately the oil pan takes up the entire front part of the engine so there is no room to use a jack if you dont have a car lift.

If you dont have access to an engine lift the you will have to remove the steering rack from below the engine. There are three ball joints that will need to be separated so you will need a pickle fork or some tough screw drivers to pry them apart. Undo the two castle nuts and ball joints on the passenger side and the one on the driver side and undo the big bolt from the pinion arm. You should be able to remove the steering rack now and the oil pan should be able to just come straight down.

Cant get change oil light to turn off

There is a red reset button is the fuse panel on the inside of driver side dashboard for the change oil light. With the key on and the engine off, depress the button once, which will start the light blinking. Now depress the button and hold it. The light should go out and a chime should sound to indicate that the reset is complete.

Oil pressure is fine. Oiling only to the pass side valve train.

The 3.1/3.4 engines are built the same way. The oil goes through the cam bearings then to the lifters, then the push rods to the rocker arms. The last engine I seen that had a weird problem had the cam bearings spun. Unfortunately there is no easy way to check for this problem short of disassembling the engine.

The other possibility would be bad lifters but loosing half of the engine lifters wouldn't be possible. Sometimes the pushrods wear on the contact areas also but not usually half an engine.

This isn't going to be easy, Good luck.
