No. Please do NOT use silicone. The oil pressure there is very high, and it will blow the silicone right out.
...What you CAN do, if it is leaking real bad, is to take the rubber gasket off of the oil filter, and use that gasket behind the oil cooler, to the block. You will need to buy a new filter, though.
The gaskets are almost identical, until you get a new one from a Toyota dealer.

This should get you up and running. Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Oil leak at filter


If it's at the filter replace the filter. If it's at the mount/engine side replace the seal/gasket. The filter bracket is taken off by removing the filter. The screw that the filter goes on has a nut built on it. remove it to remove the bracket. If it is a seal get a new one and add some silicone. If it is a gasket, clean it off, just use silicone.

Oil pan leaking.


not the easiest job at home but if you have way to lift the car securely and tools not a problem.
first lift the car and secure.drain the oil.remove the exhaust pipe to clear the oil pan,remove the bolts from oil pan. between the motor and transmission is a small plate.remove the plate to access two more bolt from the oil pan. with big flat screwdriver pray the pan on the back side.you will find lip on block and the pan to insert the pray bar or screwdriver.clean the pan from old gasket.clean the block from old gasket. install new gasket on the pan and insert 4 screw to hold in place.on front of the engine is the timing cover connection.one drop of silicon will seal the gap.place the pan and drive the 4 screw 3-4 turns.install the rest ant slightly tight all across. (ask you auto store for silicone gasket. the old cork is not so good) .tight all screw again.don't over tight.stop if the gasket start to deform out of the pan.replace the oil filter. refill oil and start the car.check for leaks.
good luck.

1997 camry ce 1mz v6


Almost certainly it is coming from the rear bank cam cover gasket, for which leak the Camry V6 is notorious. Other common places are the distributor shaft o-ring seal, the crankshaft nose seal (replaceable), and the oil filter adapter bracket (if fitted)

If you get the cam cover gaskets done, specify Toyota parts, as the aftermarket parts don't last, they harden quickly.

Oil leak by the oil filter 94CAMRY


It is a V6? If so this is one of the very common oil leaks on Camry engines of that model, the others being the distributor shaft o-ring seal and on a V6, the rear bank cam cover gasket.

The oil filter spins onto an adapter which itself is bolted to the block. In time the o-ring seal to the block goes hard and leaks. It can be easily replaced.

Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model


You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

The V6 had oil leaks from

-rear bank cam cover gasket

-distributor o-ring seal

-oil filter bracket o-ring seal

-crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

-rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

The 4 cyl leaked oil from

-distributor o-ring seal

-camshaft cover gasket

-rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

Freeze plug/plate leak


if this is the plate above LH side of the oil filter and behind/below the alternator, the gasket is leaking. Its called Water/coolant seal plate. Hopefully this helps

Developed oil leak below oil filter where block mounts to upper sump section!!


This is a real big problem with these cars! I have had the engine apart TWICE and it still leaks!

My guess is that the Aluminum parts are Warped and no matter how much sealant you use... it's going to leak. I used oil dye too and though I can see when it's coming from..the leak just won't seal!


I own a garage in CA

So, unless you have mad skills take it in..it's not going to be cheap to fix and it might not stay fixed for long. we have gotten it to leak less but never to stop %100.

1994 camry oil leak


Hi Toyota Ed
The silver plate seems to be a blank as there are no oil pipes running into.
The leak seems to be weeping along a secondary sump if that makes sense.
If looking from the bottom you have a black sump that bolts onto a silver alloy cast that then seems to be bolted to the lower engine block this seems to have a flexi seal of sealant ( can feel it where it has seeped out) this is were i think the leak is comming from.
Especially when you stop the motor you can see it seeping out around here, but as you know oil sometimes can travel in weird ways and i will check again around the blank plate that you mentioned.
Would i be able to repair it if it is the main sump/ gasket and do you have to remove the motor?
