Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

I'm thinking about buying a '91 4cyl 2wd Toyota pick up. The power steering is out, it has an oil leak out of the front seal, and the speedometer/odometer & tachometer aren't working as of 77,000 miles. He claims the truck has around 100,000 miles on it??? My question is how much should I him to adjust his $2000 price tag to compensate for the repair cost

Expect to spend $350.00 for the P/S pump.
At 100,000 miles, I would not be surprised that it would need a timing chain replacement, in addition to the front seal. It's common for them to be worn out around 100K miles...
Expect to spend about $700/800 dollars there.
The speedo/odo is probably a cable, 70/80 dollars
Tach - A new one is $495.00

Offer this guy $750.00; that is all it is worth.
I hope this helps you out.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine

Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    How do you replace oil seal on 1992 Toyota pickup

    You likely need a valve cover gasket, to confirm this is the leak clean the engine with a pressure washer and then drive it, if the cover is the leak tighten down the retaining bolts first, the gasket gets flattened and leaks, this works one time in most cases on this engine.

    The damper pulley, on the end of the crank is what drives the belts for pretty much everything else. the engine will overheat, the alternator wont charge, the power steering wont work, the air con wont work,
    the back of the pulley has a machined surface that runs inside the front crank seal.
    Is there a reason not to believe the toyota mechanic, or did it seem expensive?
    The front damper pulley (harmonic balancer) can be $100 or more plus the seal and I believe the radiator needs to come out to complete the job

    Just bought last week have an oil leak in driveway the oil is light brown in color what could it be..

    oil cooler lines, transmission pan, power steering leaking or axle seals. All are pretty common.

    IF you open up the access cover for the oil filter you will see the cooler lines. If they are wet with oil you found the first leak.

    The trans pan will be wet if the gasket is leaking

    the front axle seal will be wet right where the axles go in the front end.

    The power steering pump, lines, gear box will be wet if they are leaking.

    replace the power steering pump, the hoses are an odd size and you have to buy a wrench for it, the transmission you can change the gasket and filter and replace the fluids,, probably the engine is dripping from the rear main bearing seal, this is best left to someone who knows what they are doing.

    I have a power stearing leak I think its comming from driver side

    The front pump seal on the power steering pump - located behind the power steering pump pully tends to leak on these. To fix it you are better off replacing the entire pump assembly because the drive shaft tends to wear crooked and messes up the seal. Also, these are known for oil cooler lines leaking which is directly below power steering pump which can be mistaken for power steering pump leak.
