OIL LEVEL CHECK Every time you stop for fuel, check the engine oil as follows:

  1. Park the vehicle on level ground.
  2. When checking the oil level it is best for the engine to be at operating temperature, although checking the oil immediately after a stopping will lead to a false reading. Wait a few minutes after turning off the engine to allow the oil to drain back into the crankcase.
  3. Open the hood and inspect the level of the engine oil tank. The fluid level on the tank should read between FULL or F and LOW or L.
  4. If the level is below the LOW or L line, remove the cap and add enough engine oil to reach the FULL or F line. Fig. 1: Fill the engine oil tank located under the hood first i want to check the - 90911p07.jpg
  5. Install the oil cap and hand tighten.
  6. After filling the oil tank, remove the engine access hole cover on the drivers side.

  7. Remove the engine oil dipstick and wipe it clean.
  8. Reinsert the dipstick, push it in as far as it will go, the pull it out and look at the level on the end.
  9. If necessary, insert more oil through the oil filler cap next to the dipstick, this will completely top off the system.

Hello, I have a toyota previa 94, How the reservoir oil tank works, this appears to have no function, The level does not change. The engine has an oil leak but the reservoir level remains the same while...


the oil is filled and checked by lifting passenger seat and hatch. The under bonnet reservoir tops up oil as required to ensure all the oil ways are filled. This ensures the top end of the engine does not run dry. If all is well then you will rarely ever top this up.
Try and determine where the oil leak is coming from and keep an eye on the oil level in the sump (under passenger chair)

Oil level light stays blinking on toyota previa 1993


most of these models have 2 oil lights.The red one is oil pressure,if flashing or on when engine is running,it is usually serious.check oil level,but usually caused by blocked pickup screen(a common toyota fault) when services aren't done.The orange oil light is tripped by an oil level sensor on the side of the sump when the oil level is low.If the oil level is ok,note this is a common fault especially if oil changes have been missed,and/or a petrol engine oil used and sludge builds up,sometimes using an additive for flushing prior to oil change can help,but may not work on 1st oil change.

My toyota lucida is pouring black smoke out of the exhurst and oil leval light is on


Hi
Is it a diesel or petrol motor? If it is Diesel or petrol then black smoke is a sign that it is using excessive fuel so it could be a blocked air filter or fuel filter. if it is a diesel motor. So check these 2 items first.
The low oil level light is on because the engine needs the oil topped up, if you fill it to the correct level this will make the oil level light switch off. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Oil light flashing occasionally


It could be a faulty oil sending unit, but it would be advisable to have the oil preasure checked with a mechanical guage to determine if it is a sending unit or low oil preasure. Oil preasure low enough to allow the light to come on is low enough to possibly cause major engine damage.

I have a 19991 toyota previa. the oil level light


If the light is flashing there could be problems with the electrical wiring. The easy places to check are at the bottom of the oil reservoir (pass. side under the hood) and at the driver side of the oil pan under the vehicle where the wires plug into the sensor. If this doesn't resolve the problem then it isn't easy, and testing the circuit will have to be done by someone who knows their electrical "stuff." Even the pump motor for the reservoir could be out.

If the Oil Level Sensor light stays on and you have already checked to make sure the oil level read on the dipstick under the driver side seat engine compartment is reading adequate, then you have a sticking oil level sensor float. Replacing the oil level sensor is easy, but extremely expensive ($485 in 2012). You can try to clean the plastic spool that the float slides on, but the problem is usually that it has swollen or expanded (likely from heat in the oil). One could try to sand it down but this would be difficult. I have made a new part out of nylon 6/6 on my lathe and replaced the plastic spool so far with excellent results. I'm considering selling it as an aftermarket part when I see if mine works. It would be a lot less than $485 dollars from Toyota. Or possibly have people send it to me and I'll repair the sensor myself.

Need to know how to change the oil


First you go get a bowl to drain the oil from within the engine and remove a knot underneatthe engine to enable the oil drain out. Remove and replace the oil filter, tighten it properly, then fill in the new oil into the oil compartment of the engine.

simple.

Petrol smell from engine


I think you might be only intermittantly noticing it.
Check around the fuel injectors for signs of wetness as soon as you notice it again. Failure of the metal-plastic junctions is pretty common. Their expansion and contraction rates are different so eventually, the seal can fail.

When you say "warning light is on", I assume you are not talking about the oil pressure gauge...
If not, here is your solution:
What you have is a very common problem: The oil LEVEL sensor has failed. Previas have 2 sensors; pressure & level of the oil in the pan...What you need to do is replace it, Toyota part number : 89491-28030.
BUT...This part is $380.45. Not cheap; Sorry but true.
