After getting the cars oil changed and a tune-up because the oil light kept blinking after 20+ minutes of driving and going on and off when I stepped on the brake peddle, I now have the same problem along with a continuous grinding engine noise. They have replaced 2x's the Valve Cover Gasket and an Oil Pump along with Spark Plugs & Wires, something called a dual chain, upper and lower Gaskets, and removed the engine 3 different times before finding the clamps that hold the oil pump where cracked and replacing the Oil Pump twice. This process has taken 3 months and after getting it back the car runs beautifully and feels like it's new but still has the engine noise and when I drove it for about 40 miles the oil light came on only when stepping on the brakes. Now they are suggesting I need a new engine and are not charging me to do this.
