Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
Had my oil changed at wal mart and a couple of days later the "Oil Lamp" indicator on instrument panel became lit and will go on and off at different times. I checked the oil level and it is ok.
Toyota had a problem with sludge build-up in these engines. When the oil was changed it probably freed up enough gunk to cover the oil pump pick-up in the oil pan. You must get the pan removed and have the pick-up cleaned now! This is a common problem, google: "toyota engine sludge"

I would go back to Walmart and have them fix it for free. I suspect it's a bad oil filter. If you hear engine knocking or noise, don't drive vehicle.
