Should you drop the oil pan and check the oil pickup screen for blockage or the pan for poor clearance to the oil pickup?


did that a while ago and the pick up is clean. pan is undamaged, so there shouldn't be clearance issues. I think i'll order a new pick-up gasket from toyota and see if that fixes things.

The old school trick is to prime the pump with thick assembly lube oil or just thick (20W-50) engine oil and pre-fill the filter then cross your fingers it all works right. Usually if the pump isn't sucking there's a reason, like worn pump or excessive pump clearances that's causing low suction and it'll still be a problem once it's running and hot.

WE HAVE OIL PRESSURE!!

I've no idea what the **** it was that I did, but oil is flowing again. Essentially primed the pump with oil to test how the gear is working, slapped it on the block, ugga dugga the oil pick up to the pump, slapped the oil pan on, filled with break-in oil, disconnected the turbo oil feed line, and spun the oil pump gear and it started to bleed out. Plugged that line back and then pulled off the oil pressure gauge and spun the gear again to confirm. Oil bled out of there as well as did the oil filter.

Now I just gotta put this **** all back together again. I am not looking forward to that.

SitRep: Oil pan is officially resealed and bolted back to the block. Filled the motor with some Amsoil Engine Break-in oil and tested the pump again just to ensure it wasn't a fluke when I tested it before. Currently fighting the timing belt to get it back on, but I think I've picked up a trick to get it on based on some videos i've seen.

I guess tune in tomorrow to see what happens.

got lazy yesterday and didn't do anything except binge season 7 of Agents of SHIELD.

Today, put some time into the car and got the lower timing cover on along with the AC belt and the motor mount. Just need to tighten down the tensioner for the power steering pump and I think I can attempt to start the car again...maybe...

Over Turkey Day weekend, some friends came over to help out and double check to make sure timing belt and crank was all lined up properly. Still no dice.

however, i did notice that the pins for power and ground for the oil pressure and fuel pressures sensors were flipped on their connectors. Corrected them and then started to fiddle with the analog input in the PCLink software and managed to pick up Oil Pressure on Analog 4, so making some progress.

My IAT is still reading -40C for whatever reason. Aaron is saying that's because there's a bad connection somewhere. Part of me thinks I just have the 2 wires swapped out. I'll fiddle with it some more tomorrow when I have time.

ummmm..... ahem....

Got IAT, Fuel pressure, Oil Pressure, wideband, and Flex fuel to read correctly after Scott sent me how he wired up the auxiliary harness.

car still won't crank, so I guess we'll continue to look into that... :\

Starter works and all that.

What's a good website to host videos that this forum will accept?

I saw your video Alex.

If the ECU is firing the plugs right, then your only real remaining avenue is fuel. Your wideband was showing 14-16, wasn't it?

Will is start on starting fluid?

3S no start

Here's a video of it coughing.

I just set the timing to 0 via the standalone and confirmed with the timing light and still not getting anywhere.
