Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am sorry this happened to you
it is not a requirement to have a low oil or low oil level cut off switch in an automobile
as for why some did and some did not is very hard to say
i would call the Toyota 1800 customer service number and explain what happened and ask for possible assistance for the repair
at this point that is all you can do i am sorry to say
if you have any questions please ask as i do not get credit for my work until you rate us here at justanswer
how are you making out ?
