I have a 93? Hijet that needed rod bearings when I got it. Pulled the pan and noticed the pickup tube is in the front and pretty high off the pan. After it was back together, I took it out for a drive and that's when I noticed the oil light come on trying to climb a fairly common hill. Is this typical? Also I noticed the Subaru sambar has a backwards facing rear engine.... What does it do when the oil is sitting on the Pistons climbing a similar hill? Probably going to sell the hijet for an acty. Oil pan design looks more slope friendly. What's your $.02?
