SOURCE: Oil pressure on toyota tazz2E I put new bearings mains and big hands. New oil pump but the light is on.i prime it but still after 2hours the light comes on

its possible that you loosing oil pressure at the crank through the bearing liners did you make sure the the bearing size and clearence where right also the viscosity of the oil because warm oil is thinner than cold oil and very important use a GUD oil filter i have personal experience of pressure issues with other brands

I had valve cover gaskets and lower intake gaskets replaced, also changed the oil and filter again a week later and was told metal specs in oil. my oil light comes on within 10 minutes of driving.

metal specs in the oil is an indication of impending failure in the engine
Have a oil pressure test done with a mechanical gauge to eliminate the possibility of a faulty oil pressure sender unit
check the viscosity of oil in use
It should be no lower that 20w and should be around 20w-40 or 30w-50
The flecks could be from a problem cam shaft lobe , big end bearing, main bearings or if the engine has been overheated , ring/cylinder wall or piston

I have 1989 Toyota 3.0 v6 4x4 pickup it has spark and getting fuel but wont start.

Your firing order is out of sync......if your getting spark you are firing in the wrong cylinders to actually start the vehicle. Or your ignition module or stator is bad, you will need to prob your electrical to figure out the where the problem first would be not firing cylinders correc

I have a 99 cavalier with the 2.2 its has a knocking noise when u get the car up to 40 it stops knocking. when it gets to opperating temp the oil light comes on at idle and stop. When the light comes on...

Well yes a match is one option.
When you were replacing the rod bearings did you check the main bearings too ? My guess is a worn out main bearing.
Once you get up to speed the crank is not in such a strain as when you are accelerating. And the worn main bearings can cause the oil pressure to drop when the oil thins out at operating temp.

Have a 1990 F150 5.0 efi 4x4 automatic.truck cranks up untill it gets warm then shuts off.fuel pressure is good and i changed spark control,map,iac,temp,tpi,sensors still same thing ..please help

Did you change the stator inside the distributor?? That is likely the problem, they were a very poor design, I have changed 100's o fthem in early F series trucks like yours.

I have a 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager. The oil light keeps coming on when the engine is at an idle, under 1000 rpms. If I am driving and the RPM's get up above 1000 the light will go off. I checked the oil...

could also be wrong type of oil but worst case is the big end bearings inside the engine have gotten to big to maintain oil pressure and as you guessed the oil pump could be worn out, i would try changing oil pump first.

How do you replace a right front wheel bearing on a 2007 toyota tacoma sr5 v-6 4x4

remove the tire
Remove the caliper- two bolts in back, could be torx or allen
remove the bracket that holds the caliper- two bolts in back
remove the rotor, with hammer if nessissary
remove the big nut holding the shaft in the middle of bearing
there are three or four bolts that are in back that hold the bearing on the spindle remove these
use a screw driver and chisel to pry the bearing out of the spindle, you will have too beat on them so use an old screw driver. If the new bearing comes with the hub, then you can beat on the hub and knock it out. be careful because your limited on space and it is easy to hit something that you don't want to hit. If the new bearing doesn't come with the hub, you will have to have it pressed out and in. about twenty bucks at a garage.
Good luck

Low Oil pressure light in idle at stop

Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.

Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.
