SOURCE: oil leak on right side under top engine cover

your valve cover gasket may have blown. This can happen if you overfill above the required dipstick level. take off the valve cover and check the gasket. Better to be under the level than over. The oil preassure will try to blow from where ever there is a weak gasket.

SOURCE: oil leaking from engine right at the top of the bell housing?

it sounds like your oil pressure sending unit has gone bad. It is on the top back of the eng. close to the fire wall. If you don't have a good tool to take it out you could use a plumbing stem puller. It worked great. proper size is 1 1/16
Good luck and hope this helps. When replacing the oil sensor, make sure you do not use and teflon tape or silicon. The sensor is tapered and need a good ground to the engine to get proper readings.

SOURCE: oil leak problem with 1996 toyota camry

I am going to see a mechanic - my trusted mechanic who does not nickel and dime me - to see what this is. I have the same problem and he told me he has never done this job on a Camry and is unsure. Given the miles, he has suggested that maybe it is time to part ways with the car. I am going to ask him if he will put some florescent dye in it and let me drive it for 50-100 mi and then check to see where the leak is and fix it. Let you know what happens. I have to try, the car is solid.

SOURCE: My Chevy 2002 Tahoe is leaking oil. They told me

this truck is equipped with an aluminum oil pan you could have 1 or several things going on... a stripped drain plug which is causing it to leak or it may be a leaking front seal or a rear main seal. If it is a front seal it is not to labor intensive. But if it is a rear main seal leaking it will require the transmission to be removed since the seal is a 1 piece rear main

My back end seal is leakig


"The rear main bearing seal? This is expensive to get at, about $1000. Unless the oil is pouring out I'd just put a drip tray under it and top up the oil occasionally.

Having an oil leak at the bottom of my camry, not the oil pan gasket what else could it be.


There are three other area's that can leak, here they are in order of how often they occur
1.Engine Valve cover gasket(s) (2 if V6 engine), oil runs down the engine and drips off the pan.
2.Rear crankshaft seal leaking
3.Front crankshaft seal leaking. Oil is blown back by air pressure while driving and rips off of pan.

I have a Toyota Camry 2002 Se V6, I changed the catalyst converter, all the O2 sensors, new mass air flow new air filter they shut the light off it came back on but I also smelt a buning oil and I have oil


did you get the computer read for the fault code or codes that set off the engine check light the first time and now this time?just trying to establish why all these things were replaced.generally if a cat melts down it is caused by poor fuel burn,o2 sensors and sparkplug leads,or coils if direct fire type on the top of each sparkplug.If these arent right,the cat will overheat and smell like burning oil.But it should run unevenly or down on power if misfiring.It seems as if you hadn't finished your description....and I have oil.....leak perhaps?this shouldnt trigger light unless it is leaking onto a sensor and it would have to damage it or affect the reading of it to computer.Hope this helps or get back with some more information.

My 2002 chevy malibu is leaking oil what could it be ?


If oil is leaking -could be power steering,engine, transmission,
I can honestly name over 20 possibilities, but before we get into those possibilities I would recommend taking your car to your local repair shop for a complete inspection regarding the oil leak. Most shops may give you a free estimate or not exceed charging more than $100.00
good luck and top up which ever oil is leaking to prevent future problems..

I have a 1999 toyota camry and it just resently started leaking engine oil. It is not leaking around the filter or the oil plug. It only leaks when the car is running. Where is the next most common place...


the most common place for a leak, especially when the engine running, is the rocker cover gasket on the top of the engine. other places include the crankshaft and camshaft oil seals, the sump gasket, and as you have already said, the oil filter and sump plug.
it is a lot easier to spot a leak if you pressure clean the engine first.
that way it is much easier to see any fresh oil and where it is coming from

1990 Toyota Camry Oil Loss


Considering the age of the car I'm guessing failure of the main seals or piston rings. Failing piston rings would give the exhaust a blue tinge and be most noticable when reving the engine in neutral (park). It would also show up big time during an emissions test. Leaking main seals would show up as oil all over the lower parts of the engine and transmission. If your valve cover(s) are leaking it will make it difficult to determine where the oil is coming from.
I have a '90 Camry and have leaking main seals. I'm down almost two quarts each oil change if I don't stay on top of it. Not much to do in either case but rebuild the engine ($$$$$). Hope this helps.

It sounds like your valve seals are getting old and are leaking oil into your pistons.As long as it is not using a lot of oil or fouling your spark plugs drive the heck out of it and look the other way when you first crank it up in the morning.
One other problem that will cause this is a cracked head or a leaking head gasket which is getting water on your pistons overnight. Watch for #1 low antifreeze in your radiator #2 higher than normal engine temperatures. This could be a serious problem that could cause expensive damage to your engine if not corrected.
