The only positive way to check if the oil pump is working and therefore there is correct oil pressure is to temporary install a non-electrical oil pressure gauge that uses a small copper tubing to sample the oil/pressure and drive a needle on the gauge. Depending on temperature, idle should register about 20+psi. Having done this and confirmed that indeed there is sufficient oil pressure then it may simply be a defective oil sending unit. Otherwise, no or low oil pressure at idle is an indicator that the engine needs to be opened up again.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Low oil pressure toyota camry

Is this high mileage vehicle? If so, I doubt changing oil pump will help, you may need engine overhaul?
Sometimes, you use an analog pressure gage in place of the oil pressure sending unit, to read actual oil pressure. My info says at idle, oil pressure 4.3 psi or more. At 3000 rpms, it says 43--78 psi.

Low oil pressure

Cam bearing usually have a lot to do with oil pressure. but sense you overhauled it. There are more questions to be answered. Did you replace oil pump or reuse the same one ? Did you replace cam bearings ? Was there a gasket between the block and oil pump mounting location ? Also if the cam bearings were not replaced , did you check to make sure none of them had spin out of alignment . if this happened it could cause low oil pressure and also be starving other areas for oil.

My toyota 5a engine tapets are very noisy when running

check your engine oil pressure with a manual gauge, compare it to repair manual specks. if oil pressure is too low and mileage is 80,000 or below you could get by with an oil pump replacement. If miles are lower see if tappets are adjustable and try it. only if oil pressure is good as well. If mileage is higher than 80,000 you may be in the market for an overhaul if oil pressure is low.
