1994 Lexus ES300 Q&A

1994 Lexus ES300 Question: is the Oil Pump located in the oil pan or driven directly by the crankshaft.

How much will I expect to pay for labor and what else could make the oil warning light come on every time I drive the vehicle; it will come on for a few minutes then go off repeatedly only while driving not while sitting in idling mode. -

seek a manual oil pressure test, it could be just a sending unit issue -
