    That's what I was afraid of!! ... It seems that the engine has locked up due to internal damage from low oil level... Have someone with a little car savvy check it out for you... I hope I'm wrong..... Good luck with it!!!

    The engine check instrument said the rocker arm actovator has problems due to low oil pressure

    Yep, I bet it does!!!!.. Have someone try to turn the engine with a socket and ratchet on the crankshaft pulley bolt to see if it will even turn!!!
    Again... Good luck!
