Question about 2001 Toyota Sienna
I just had the valve gaskets replaced from a small oil leak. it cost $380.00. when i got the car back within a day it leaks worse than ever.
the mechanic states that its unrelated and he will now have to drop the transmission to replace a rear seal, and this will cost seceral hundred dollars. it seems like more than coincidence that this happened. could he have caused this to happen? do i have any recourse?
can you tell me how many estimated hours it should be to replace this seal?
SOURCE: I am looking to buy
Could be quite costly. Especially the rear main seal on the engine. You have to take the trans out to even get to it. I would look for something else with less problems to buy.

Yes rear cam plug leaks are common. no need to replace, just remove & apply rtv to sealing surface. Also check cam housing on right bank rear. This can be removed & resealed with rtv silicone.

I have the same car and the same problem. I can see the oil shooting out at the (upside down) rear, right side of the oil pan. This side of the oil pan is covered by a piece of plastic foam. There are no bolts on this side of the pan. Toyota recommends grey Formagaskit to seal the pan. The natural flow for this leak is all over the bell housing. The piece of plastic foam is attached to bell housing inspection cover. Good Luck!!!
