    hi from the uk this from what you have described happened? does not sound good but very expensive ? however when you say oil and thrn ignition lights came on and engine died? if you try to start ? what happens ? does engine turn over ok? or do you just get click from starter? if you could just try this check and come back with result ? if you try to turn engine manually by spanner//socket on crank pully to see if it turns ? do not wish to assume the worst at this stage but if you ddo this check and reply asap will be able to give positive diagnosis and best course of action next ?

    The indicators came on because the engine stalled, they where not most likely the cause of the stall, you need to do some tests to find the cause of this stall, 1st have a trouble code test run to see if any ugly trouble codes are stored for this stall, 2nd check the fuel pressure at the engine fuel rail test port while cranking the engine, and last is ness check for spark to the plugs. Let me know what you find, there is no silver bullet to fix these things, just a series of tests and checks.

Toyota has a problem with sludge in the engine which clogs up the oil pump pick up.Which could lead to oil starvation and engine damage.There is a recall on this if you meet requirements.Contact your dealer.

    Check the 15amp EFI fuse under the hood in the enging block on the driver side. That probably blew out. BUT that only fixes the problem for you to at least drive the car home or to an auto shop. It will blow out again if you accelerate the car fast or slam on the gas pedal to hard. Now the next part is still a mystery to me. I hear from others on forums that these toyota engines produces a lot of sludge, which causes the oil light to blink and the car seems to shut of by blowing the EFI fuse as a safety precaution I guess. Try that and I hope that helps a bit. I'll come back and update my findings.

you don't have a choke.
Could be the linkage hanging up for sure.
Have it checked by a pro ASAP.
Although it's kinda easy to replace, its easy to go wrong if you don't know what you are doing and safety should always come first.

it could be as simple as a bad oil pressure, or it could be a bad engine. If the oil pressure was good before the oil change maybe the oil filter might be the problem

there may be a software update for the powertrain control module for mis-fire monitor. check with your local dealer. but if thats not the case,these engines are known at least in my experience of having the heads crack between the valves and cause mild mis-fires. try compression testing all the cylinders and performing a leakdown test on them as well.

Oil pressure light comes on after driving on highway for 10 miles


Sounds like your sending unit sensor - if it was your pump going out, your engine would be history by now. Rule of thumb, if your oil check light ever comes on, it's usually too late to remedy the problem. You have a major issue, but since you've obviousely drove it quite a bit since then and it still hasn't seized up, I'm guessing you're ok...for now. Since you took it to a shop and they said you're ok, I'm assuming they checked your level and visually checked for leaks and found nothing. Either, you've got somethijng partially blocking your pick-up tube for the pump which is in your oil pan, or a electrical issue with the sensor. I would start by having someone check the sensor out and go from there...good luck.
