Wrong gear oil change it to a limited possi anti slip oil and when you do change it putt old oil in see threw bottle.and look for metal flake if there is rebuild it if there isint,change the oil putt it back together and try it and see if it works
As it is an EFI computer controlled engine the tune up will start with having the fault codes read. The ECM unit keeps the engine tuned at all times so if there are any sensors that need replacing then hat is where the tune up starts . The biggest pitfall is wasting money replacing things that are perfectly ok (plugs HT leads etc). The over sites are things that drain engine power indicating poor performance but are not connected to the engine Items include dragging brake /pads, low tyre pressures, wheel alignments, carrying unnecessary loads/ weights
Metal flakes in the oil are usually bearing material so I suspect the engine is gone. You should have it looked at by a licenced mechanic to be sure. Tow it, don't drive because the engine may very well be saved. Hope this helps.
Unfortunately, the damage is done--the crankshaft bearing(s) have probably been ruined for lack of oil along with the pistons, rings, camshaft, valves, and so on. A major, major repair. Even if you fix the obvious noises, the rest of the engine will continue to haunt you. Cheapest repair is to find a replacement engine at a wrecking yard--they give a short guarantee for such parts which is long enough to reveal such things as oil burning and noises like you have now. A re-manufactured engine is the best of all choices, but quite expensive--probably over $3000. Hope this helps!
the oil should be black,brown or gold(new) with no other colors in it. shouldnt be milky or streaky. the trans fluid should be light red or semi light red.as for the engine being oily its hard to discern unless you rinse it off to metal and drive it. if you mean the oil pan has black oil on it then it may be ok.
