I do a lot of work on Toyota Previa before; including rebuilt engine, swapping engine and transmission and lot of things in between, but never swap a normal aspirated engine to a supercharged engine or diesel. Since i have some experience in Previa, I would like to share my opinion with you regarding your plan to swapping the normal aspirated Previa engine to a Supercharged engine. When you do a swapp like that, you will not only be dealing with just swapping engine, but some wiring, computer, throttle body, air cleaner assembly, extra frame and pulley on the accessory items, transmission as well as a right rear end to get the correct gear ratio to accomodate the new engine and transmission. I can go on even more, but let me tell you this, beside less headache, it would definitely cheaper if you were to find a Supercharged Previa and fix it up. However, if you are totally motivated to do this project, keep in mind, this engine swap will be a long term and time consuming project.l I wish you best of luck and have fun!

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.
