Question about 2002 Toyota Highlander
IN DECEMBER, MY 2002 HIGHLANDER ENGINE SEIZED UP. THE SHOP MANAGER EVENTUALLY TOLD ME MY ENGINE HAD BURNED OUT DUE TO A MAJOR OIL LEAK. THIS WAS TOTAL SURPRISE AS I HAD REGULAR OIL CHANGES SO IT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE. I REFUSED TO PAY $4300 TO REPLACE THE ENGINE SO, I TURNED TO A LOCAL MECHANIC. THIS DIAGNOSIS TURNED OUT TO BE UNTRUE. THE MECHANIC WAS ABLE TO GET THE ENGINE RUNNING AND THE CAR SOUNDS GREAT. HOWEVER THERE IS ONE MAJOR ISSUE. THE OIL LIGHT CONTINUES TO TURN ON AND OFF. WHEN IT'S ON, THE ENGINE IS MAKING RATTLING SOUND. I PURCHASE MY CAR BRAND NEW OFF THE LOT. I'VE HAD NO MAJOR PROBLEMS UNTIL NOW. I'M A STUMPED!
Well take it back to you're mechanic and have him in stall a master oil pressure gauge and check teh oil pressure this will tell you if the engine indeed has low oil pressure or if the oild pressure sender is bad. also if it is rattling or knocking SHUT IT OFF you dont wana spend the 4-5 thousand to fix it im sure
