    I saw your post Avalon low oil pressure light. I am having a similar issue with approx. 150k miles. When last started it had a high pitch whining noise, I turned it off immediately. I tried to drop the oil pan for inspection but I have been having trouble breaking the seal in order to get the pan removed. Did you use anything special in order to remove the pan?
    I bought 2000 Avalon XLS with 33k miles on it in '02 and have been using Mobil 1 oil since that time. I can't imagine I would have a sludge problem, but who knows.
    Have you had any re-occurrence of the same problem since you dropped the pan and cleaned the screen, and cleaned up under the valve cover gaskets?

    I would really like to get this problem solved and get my Avalon back on the road. If you are willing, send me an e-mail & I'll send you my phone # in order for me to discuss this issue with you. Thanks, [email protected]
