There are two types of transmissions in 1991 Toyota Corolla. Manual Transmission and Automatic Transmission.
1. Manual Transmission:
The transmission oil is checked through a level bolt which is provided to the left CV joint side in the middle of transmission. To check the oil level, park the car on a level floor, remove the level bolt with 22 mm or 24 mm spanner. If the oil starts coming out of this hole the oil level is considered OK. If not, top up the oil till it starts coming out and tighten the bolt. The recommended manual transmission oil grade is 75W/ 90W and total capacity is 2.4 Litres.

2. Automatic Transmission:
Warm up the engine, park the car on level floor, pull up the hand brake, gear lever stick in P, keep the engine start, let the radiator fan come on, take the auto-transmission stick out, wipe it with a clean dust free cloth, insert it in, again take it out, keep the stick in horizontal position and check the oil level. At operating temperature the auto-transmission oil level should be at upper level (Hot). If not, add oil to mach the mark. The recommended auto-transmission oil is Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Dexron II, and total (drain and refill) capacity is 1.4 Litres.

Oil temp low. as low as it can be read on gague. check engine light on. car sometimes has trouble with going into reverse

The first thing you should do is to check your oil level, by the way, it is an oil PRESSURE gauge. Which shows you at what pressure your oil is being pumped up to the valves. If the oil level is ok then the oil pump (located in your oil pan) could be clogged or quit working.

If the oil level was low, then fill to the correct level and then take your vehicle to an auto parts store to have the error codes read and write them down so that you can give us them later (if needed).

Is it just open drain plug and refill or is there aproblem of air pockets the tranny is 4x4 with transfer box in same housing

there is no need to blead air from the gearbox or transfer, or diff's
first the transfer and gearbox are together but use their own oils and are changed seperatly
remove the drain plug to drain, refit then refill through the filler flug, the correct level is thesame as the filler so when starts draining from the filler hole its full. car needs to be level/flat ground when doing this.
if its auto there will be a tube for checking the level, at the back of the engine under the bonnet. auto trans oil does need the engine running to check for correct level.
remove drain plug with the engine off, refill approx same amount of oil in to the dipstick tube, then start the engine, select each gear for a couple of secconds then back to neutral, check level with engine still running. adjust level if needed.

Red oil light stays on at high rpm.reads 139 at idle

Check the sending unit for the oil then check the oil pump. I bet on the oil pump being bad.

Over heated after about 10 miles of driving

Check the coolant level.
Check the engine oil level. If the engine oil is blackish looking and smelling burnt, replace the oil as well as the oil filter.
The coolant condition can be checked with a coolant tool purchased at an auto parts store.
Also check the water pump belt is turning and is not slipping.

Oil pressure warning light is buzzing and i've replaced the sensor on my 94 vw golf

Could be a few things, I assume you've checked the oil level. You could have a worn engine and therefore low oil pressure, could need a new oil pump. you can connect a mechanical oil guage to check whether it is a problem with your guage
