Question about 1991 Toyota Celica
Use a drill to turn the shaft from the distributor/module
Posted on Jul 16, 2009
The oil pump drive is off the intermediate shaft
and that is driven by the timing chains. Unless you want to take apart
the chains and spin the int shaft itself, there isn' t a good way to
prime the motor.
Or just try this:
Just disconnect the bulkhead plug just behind the coil pack, you know the big round thing with all the wires. Crank the engine over a few times, 10-20, reconnect the plug and start the engine.
Look on back of block there is a metal cap held on by two bolts. Take that cap off and pull out the top gear then find a socket that fits the top of the oil pump driveshaft. Put it on a power drill with a long extension stick it in the hole onto the driveshaft and spin it, cover top of whole around the extension with a rag so it doesnt spill. This will prime the whole motor, if you do it with head open you can see the oil come up through the lifters

SOURCE: Pump Priming Problems.
you should try to pack the gears and pump cavity with petroleum jelly which will prime the pump and the oil will then displace the jelly. If you use any other kind of grease, the oil will not be able to displace it so make sure you only use petroleum jelly. This is the stuff used in the medical field but works great for this purpose too. Let me know how it goes and whether you have any further questions. Thanks and good luck
