If you had that much sludge in the pan, you may want to remove and inspect under the valve covers for sludge. You can remove the front one fairly easily. It'll only cost a gasket.

Thanks. I went over the car and couldn't find anything obvious. Will disconnect the battery next and see if that helps. Fortunately for everyone else, this appears to be a very rare issue.

2003 RX Tachometer stopped working

Tachometer stopped working all of a sudden. Everything else appears to be working and all the fuses check out fine. Any idea where should I start looking? Thanks in advance.

You may be able to find more sources for information and even better prices for parts if you look for Toyota 3.0l V6. You should also have more options if you decide to go the junk yard route.
