My car just suddenly stopped. The oil light turned on, and at the same time, the brake pedal AND gas pedal could not push down. I then restarted the car. It worked fine for 1/10 of mile, and then the same thing happened. I pulled into a parking parked with parking brake because I could not use the brake nor the gas pedal. I Checked oil and it was not full, but did not seem to be too low, it was also a bit chunky. I know the chunkiness can happen from cold weather; it has just become "cold" as in 35degrees in the past week. I Added oil (5w-20) and got home (Which was about a mile) alright. The check engine light went on last week and the shop checked it out and said it was the EGR, but was not sure on the specific until I could leave the car there-they said it should be fine to drive for a week or so until I can leave it at the shop. Any advice?
