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.

How do you remove the starter from a 1991 nissan pic up with 2.9 cc engine

I did not find the instructions for a 2.9 L engine per se, but the following should be good for many American models of the 1991 Nissan d21 Pickup truck: REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery, then disconnect the positive battery cable at the starter. Fig. 1: Starter removal on 4WD - 6-cylinder engine 86713015.gif
    Fig. 2: Starter removal on 2WD - 6-cylinder engine 86713016.gif

  2. On 4wd models with the 6-cylinder engine:
    1. Remove the front gravel shield.
    2. Detach the oil pressure switch connector.
    3. Drain the engine oil and remove the oil filter. CAUTION
      The EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used.
    4. Remove the exhaust manifold heat insulator.
    5. Remove the fuel tube retainer bolt.
  3. On 2wd models with the 6-cylinder engine:
    1. Remove the front right wheel.
    2. Remove the front gravel shield.
    3. Remove the exhaust manifold heat insulator.
    4. Remove the exhaust manifold.
    5. Detach the oil pressure switch connector.
  4. Unfasten the remaining electrical connections at the starter solenoid.
  5. Remove the two nuts holding the starter to the bell housing, then pull the starter toward the front of the vehicle and out. To install:
  6. Insert the starter into the bell housing, being sure that the starter drive is not jammed against the flywheel.
  7. Tighten the attaching nuts and secure all electrical connections to the starter assembly.
  8. Install all remaining components in reverse order of removal.
  9. Reconnect the battery cables. If applicable, refill and check the oil level. Check the starter assembly for proper operation.

1991 Toyota Pickup 22RE. Loss in oil pressure, timing chain is really got a lot of slack in it. Got 197,000 miles on it. What might be the solution of fixing?

The soulution is probably going to be expensive. It sounds like your oil pump is going bad or your piston rings are not sealing properly anymore. As far as the timing chain is concerned if the timing is still good and/or you are getting no backfires under acceleration then it is just showing normal wear. You probably need to rebuild the motor. Please rate my answer.
