Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
Inside the oil pan. Why? Oil pumps rarely fail. I would look for other problems first. DIY? you need a repair manual. Your favorite Auto parts store, or try filepeep.com.

On a 22RE the oil pump is on the timing cover behind the crank pulley/harmonic balancer,it has the crank timing pointer built onto it,generally they don't leak around the pump seal but as Monster80 pointed out they leak from the front main seal wich is installed on the front of the oil pump,pretty common for the 22R/RE to leak around the timing cover gaskets or out the bolt holes on the timing cover also,usually due to uneven tourqe on the bolts,to check the front main seal you need to look at the the crank from the underside right after you've shut the motor down,if the seals bad you'll see oil starting to form a drop on the backside of the pulley or the front of the oil pump housing.
