Lexus fixed sludge issue in my 1999 Lexus 4 yrs ago. I was driving the other day. Oil light ame on. It was low almost 2 quarts. Added 2. Drove down the street. Oil light came back on. Car was losing pressure. Had it towed to mechanic who cannot work on it due to back problems. It was making light noise by oil pan area and had a small leak but I kept only synthetic oil in it every 3 mos. The mechanic said all I needed to do was watch the oil level and to come drive it home but next morning he called and said my car will not start.
Any idea whether it's oil pump locked or if I need new engin
