Question about Toyota Corolla
There is no way of knowing what all has been damaged by the low oil pressure without taking the motor apart. you might get away with replacing the heads and flywheel but something else will pop up later and cost you more trouble. You will also have to replace the oil pump since the pressure dropped, umnless you just ran out of oil and the pump wan't hurt. My advice on this is to talk to an engine rebuilder and get an estimate on rebuilding your current engine, that way he can save any parts that were not damaged and will only have to replace the bad parts. Check to see what the difference in price is whether you replace the motor with a new one vs a low milage used one against the cost of rebuilding yours. Some cases it eisier to replace the motor instead of rebuilding. I suspect that you have much more damage than you think. Loosing oil pressure is a death sentence for engines!
