1993 Toyota Previa - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

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.

I am unsure if this is the only problem with the kick down cable but you may need to remove the bottom pan of the transmission to be able to disconnect or reconnect if you cant access it the change the kick down cable from the outside the transmission.

Sounds like head gasket leak into the combustion chamber or a cracked head which does the same thing.

Interesting. It could be that the circuits are shorted out inside the instrument cluster. The oil light should be on when oil pressure drops below 5psi. Oil level in the engine would not have a direct effect on the warning light unless the engine was empty.
