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. Hope this helps.

This should get you up and running. Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating would be most appreciated.

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 pan gasket leaks


go to autozone dot com and make a free account then put in the make model and year and look at the free repair guides. That will help but you need to be able to raise the vehicle to work under it, then you need to remove all the pan bolts and if you can not drop the pan all the way, just enough to remove the gasket will work, make sure that you clean the surfaces on the pan and the block,dont use any sealer on it. make sure it is lined up correctly,put it back and tighten the bolts, DONT OVER TIGHTEN the bolts.

The oil pan is leaking from its seal


Drain oil remove appx, 20 bolts from arround pan remove and replace gasket, Make sure you get all of the old gasket off. And use a high tempiture silicone when replacing gasket onto pan place hew gasket onto silicone let set appx 15 min Also place some of your silicone onto your engine block where the pan fit's up to. When tighting bolts do not over tight, this will damage your pans smoothness. Good luck.

Engine lite stays on all the time and how do i change fuel pump on my 93 dodge spirit?


Okay....this is for the fuel pump:

  1. Make sure the negative battery cable is disconnected. Have a metal cup handy to collect any fuel that may spill.
  2. Place a drain pan under the oil filter, then remove the filter with a strap wrench or equivalent.
  3. Disconnect the fuel and vapor lines, catching fuel that spills. Dispose of any spilled fuel safely.
  4. Plug the fuel lines to prevent leaks.
  5. Remove the attaching bolts and remove the fuel pump.
The fuel pump is NOT repairable. It must be replaced as a complete unit. Always use a new gasket when installing the pump and make certain that the gasket surfaces are clean.
To install:
  1. Clean the fuel pump and engine block gasket surfaces of all old gasket material or dirt.
  2. Position a new fuel pump gasket against the engine block, then situate the pump in position over the gasket with bolt holes lined up squarely. Install the retaining bolts and tighten them to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
  3. Connect the fuel lines to the pump (always start fuel line connections by hand-before using a wrench to tighten) and tighten the fittings to 175 inch lbs. (20 Nm).
  4. Clean the block surface, check the gasket, then install the oil filter, tightening it by hand only. If the gasket is damaged, replace the filter. Refer to Section 1 for the proper service procedures regarding oil filters.
  5. Start the engine and check for leaks. Check the crankcase oil level and refill as necessary.

Oil Pan Gasket Replacement - How to - GMC Yukon 2000


No big job Really. Just locate your Drain Plug for the Oil. Thepan is right there, Remove the Bolts around the Pan and Remove. You will lose all of your oil so, Have something there to catch it all. Clean it all around the Edges of the Block where the Pan mounts with Degreaser and Make sure that you Scrape the Old Gasket off of Both the Block and the Pan. Run a Thin Bead of Blue ATV Silicone around the Pan Edge, Lay the Gasket on top of this Silicone. Put another Thin line on top of the Gasket and Reinstall. This Silicone is High Temp Silicone and will Seal Very Well. Make sure to put oil Back in the Motor! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

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?
