I dont know that model but id be doing a compression test to check that it hasnt thrown some piston rings which would allow diesel into the oil

diesel in the oil was a common issue with the 4jx1 but there should be nowhere that diesel and oil share? Is the common rail inside the engine? That could allow a head gasket leak to mix them Is the injector pump oil lubricated? I have no knowledge of common rail engines
