So I just posted on here about me looking for a vehicle and I came across one this weekend. Well I decided to go pick it up and as I'm driving home I had the oil pressure light flicker on me… not good..

I pulled over as quick as possible and had oil all underneath the vehicle I am pretty sure it's that oil cooler line or I hit something like one of those many chunks of tire in the road. Anyway does anybody know of any shops in the area they recommend me bringing it to near Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Thanks Andrew

If it turns out to be the oil cooler pipe hose leak, the part is going to come from a Lexus or Toyota dealer. There is a Toyota dealer in Elizabethtown, but closest Lexus dealer is in Louisville. Depending on the new car date of first use and current mileage, the oil cooler pipe may be covered by a warranty extension; call the Lexus dealer in Louisville to check eligibility. Personally I would…

Thanks Grant, I appreciate the reply. I ended up having it towed to the parking lot repair at advance auto parts and doing the repair the good old way on my back. Brought back so great memories. Luckily I Think I'm in the clear and the engine seems to be good with no abnormal noises.

Glad to hear it. I've had a couple breakdowns on long road trips myself.
