  1. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hey guys. I've got an '02 Camry LE, Japanese made, 4-cylinder, 5-speed manual, and it's leaking oil from somewhere behind the crankshaft pulley. Have you guys seen anything like this before, and if so, what's the most common reason behind the leak? My guess it's some sort of oil seal or gasket...
  2. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I bought a 2003 Toyota Matrix a couple weeks ago. It’s a nice car and I love it, but the kid that sold it to me lied about it’s condition, and the engine is in pretty bad shape. Instead of wasting time and money troubleshooting I’m thinking of just putting a new engine in it. What’s the...
  3. Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    Hello friends, So I just got back from the repair shop to see what could possibly be wrong with my Avalon, I noticed there to be a slight oil leak. The repair tech told me that the issue is the timing cover, and the oil pan leaking... He quoted the repair at about 2000$ and about 20hrs of...
  4. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I located 2 spots where oil is leaking from my engine. The first was fixed by a simple oil pan gasket replacement. The second is where I'm having problems. There is some sort of sensor on the back side of the engine on what appears to be the middle of the block. It's leaking a good amount when...
  5. Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I need help in identifying where this leakage is starting. It's an early stage that i caught when i was planning to replace my front brake pads. This leakage is next to the Catalytic converter and has collected a lot of dust along with it. Also, do you think there is a crack on the metal frame...

    Can somebody tell me what the black piece in the picture is, it seems to be leaking quite abit of oil
  7. Sienna 3rd Generation (2011-2020)
    Picked up a 2012 that a guy was rushing to sell. Didn't really look at it that closely since the exterior was money and the carfax was showing religious maintenance records and dealership oil changes every 4k (wth). 130k miles and the price seemed great so I went for it. Brought it back and...
  8. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi everyone, I own a 1994 Camry with 121,000klms on it. It has just started to develop an oil leak down the front of the engine. The oil runs from around the oil filter and all the way down to the oil pan. My guess is the oil cooler is the culprit. It would be fantastic if I could get some help...
  9. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I drive a 2003 Toyota Corolla manual CE, about 260xxx miles on it. I recently noticed that the bottom of my car is leaking and I recall the leak coming from the bottom of the passenger side, around the left tire, and somewhat in the middle. At first I figured it was just the AC condensation from...

    We have a 2005 Camry and it has never used or leaked oil but my wife drove it home yesterday and there was oils all over the s belt and that side of the engine so I cleaned off all of the oil after putting it on stands and taking off the plastic shield and turning it on and off for a few seconds...
  12. Sienna 2nd Generation (2004-2010)
    Hi all, I have decided to buy a Sienna for my family and have been looking at several used ones. I looked at this 07 with 130k miles and small dent that is offered to me at $3000, a good $1500 under the competition, however it has a few potential problems: 1. Transmission cooling hose broke...
  13. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    Hi! New around here so forgive me if this seems like a stupid question/thread. I have a 2001 highlander with right around 197k on the clock. The engine recently went out and i had it rebuilt completely about 25k miles ago. It has a pretty bad oil leak on the passenger side of engine compartment...
  14. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    Realized I've been missing a bolt on the engine cover since I purchased the car a couple years ago. Currently 255k miles. It's burning and leaking oil so just replaced the valve cover gasket. Previously replaced the PCV valve and just did it again as well. Already replaced the thermostat due to...
  15. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hello to all the 2ZZ-GE experts here.:D I got a small oil leak on my Corolla TS, near the timing chain cover and the tensionner, which is also near the engine block. My local dealership looked at it for 5 minutes and said that it was the head gasket... :oops: Since then, I cleaned the entire...
  16. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Looks like the oil is leaking where the intake manifold connects to the motor. Is this possible, or is it just my head gasket on the way out? Its fairly coated with oil at the back and I noticed a single drop of oil under the car - so not leaking like a sieve...yet. I also drained the coolant...
  17. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Noticed a tiny oil leak on the garage floor so decided to check under the vehicle. Found a small bead of oil leaking near the front middle of the car. Can anyone help diagnose what is leaking and potential solutions from the attached photos? The vehicle is 2010 Camry LE 4-cylinder. Looks like...

    Hi everyone I have a 2002 Camry and just did an oil change. I noticed previous owner didn't add a washer on the drain plug but the car wasn't leaking oil even though there are older leak stains on the pan especially coming from the gasket seal. I bought a generic metal plug washer that fit the...

    I have a Toyota 2001 Camry LE, 2.2 Gas engine. Miles are around 165000. I was checking something near the wheel and my hands were full of oil when I put it on the CV boot on the driver side. Please take a look at the picture and let me know your thoughts on the reason or location. Thanks for...
