Question about 2006 Toyota RAV4
I heard a pop in my engine drove about a mile and all lights came on, car stalled. Started again, drove another mile, car stalled, all lights came on.
Took to a mechanic . He said oil pressure switch had popped out and all oil came out of engine. Has this happened to others? 2006 Rav4 Limited 50,000 miles
There are no recalls that pertain to oil pressure switches on any Toyota vehicle. I would like to know exactly what part of the switch popped out, the entire switch, or just a part of it. What probably happened is somebody banged into the switch when changing the oil, and compromised the integrity of the switch. The oil pumping out issue: The Oil Pressure Switch is on the first oil galley out of the oil pump. This means that the switch port gets full oil pressure while the engine is running. This is around 30 PSI. With the switch, or any part of it missing, it would not take too long to pump out the 3.9 quarts of oil in the pan.
