Question about 1992 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

I have a friend who has a 1992 Toyota celica Gt. It is leakinf alot of oil on back side of engine. She had a friend who said it was the oil pan and they replaced the gasket. I saw oil leaking from the car so I looked and I can't tell that the gasket was replaced, but there seems to be alot of oil leaking farther up the backside of the engine. I think it could be the oil pump gasket. My ? is there is so much oil I am guessing on the leaks locaton, but how hard is it to replace the gasket? and can this be a do it yourself job?

How do you change the oil in a 2000 Toyota Celica Gt?

put a jack so that you can slip in under the engine... at the oil pan its the only bottom part of the engine you'll see a drain plug remove that, thats where the oil drains out. but before doing that start your engine first atleast 5 to 10 mins. then turn of the engine, then perform the draining... leave it for atleast an hour then put back the drain plug... others replace also the oil filter its located at the side of the engine bit lower its round tin metal like... but you should have a tools for that, because thats tight and slippery w/o the tools... after doing that put the new oil remove the oil cap at the top of the engine then pour the new oil, make sure you check the manufacturers oil level.

I have a 1990 toyota celica gt hatchback STRUT RPLACEMENT

I won't address your struts question because you can find the answer in any service manual. Refer to the free repair manual for your car at Look in the "Steering and Suspension" section.

For your other two questions.

If the oil on the passenger side is leaking from down low it could be coming from the oil pan gasket. You'll have to remove the oil pan and reseal it with a new after-market gasket or with gasket-maker. If it is coming from higher up behind the timing cover, most likely it would be from either the crankshaft seal or the camshaft seal. Replacing these involves removing the timing belt and the camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. Refer to the service manual. Or it could be coming from the oil filter. Make sure that the filter is securely in place, and check that its gasket is in good condition, or just replace the filter.

The vibration/rumble is most likely due to old worn out motor mounts. You can probably eliminate 80% of the vibration by replacing the front right motor mount - the one that attaches to the passenger fender. To replace the mount, start by loosening the mount's center bolt nut. If I recall correctly it is a 19mm nut, and you will probably need to fit a steel pipe extension over a 19mm wrench to loosen it. Then support the engine with a jack before you loosen all the other bolts on the fender and the timing cover. .

Let me know if you have any questions.

What is the size of the allen wrench needed to fit the oil pan drain plug in a 1995 toyota celica

The oil pan drain plug should require a 14mm hex head wrench to remove. The transmission pan requires a 10mm allen head socket, or wrench to remove. Are you sure you're trying to remove the correct drain? The oil drain should be on the passenger side and on the rear corner of the pan.

No spark when trying to start my 1992 Toyota Celica GT. The engine died while I was driving. It will crank over but won't start.

Remove the distributor cap and see if you see a rust colored dust inside. If so, the the distributor is bad and needs to be replaced. The igniter in the distributor is not working properly

Replace oil pump

Oil Pump is in the oil pan.. You would have to take the pan out. To get the pan out you either have to raise the motor up or remove crossmembers.
