Oil leaking from undercarage on passenger side of rav4 toyota

Was driving down the free way and noticed smoke coming from the muffler. Pulled over and noticed that oil was leaking from under the undercarage on the passenger side. Looked to see if it was the oil filter and could not identify where it was or if that is where the oil was coming from. Checked the oil and it was barely reading on the dip stick. did not drive it. Had it towed to a repair shop.

    Did you have your oil recently changed?
    If so, somebody might have not spun it on tight or made sure that it was well seated, so it leaked.

    Rav 4 is pretty reliable. Get a 2nd opinion of you get a more than inspection cost.

    Sometimes when you remove the old oil filter the rubber seal stays stuck on the block. Then you put the new filter on and it doesnt seal because it is double gasketed. It just needs refilled cleaned up and started and look for the leak.

SOURCE: Toyot Rav4 1996 Uses Oil

It has to be either burning it or you have a leak. If you changed the oil and overfilled it a gasket may have blown. try pouring a can of engine stop leak. Maybe it will help.

SOURCE: 1994 camry oil leak

Before you start removing the oil pan to reseal it, you need to rectify the leak between the oil cooler and the block. Interestingly enough, (in a pinch) the rubber gasket from the (genuine) Toyota oil filter is the same gasket that seals the cooler to the block. Aftermarket filter gaskets will NOT work. Remove the filter, carefully take off the gasket, remove the oil cooler, take off the old rubber gasket, and put the oil filter's gasket onto the cooler, and bolt it all back up. (You should buy this gasket from a dealer) Clean the area real good with cleaner, and THEN check for additional leaks.
Hope this helps, and THNAKS for choosing FixYa. Please feel free to comment back if you need any additional info. The graciousness of a FIxYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Replace 2007 Toyota Rav4 super sport passenger side door mirror

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

SOURCE: car is leaking fluid under driver's side

A dark red or burgundy color fluid most likely means you have a transmission fluid leak.

Warm you car up for 5-10 minutes and check your transmission fluid level while it's running and you will likely find it to be low.

do you know if they replaced the O ring rubber that connects the pipe under the intake Mark?
One of its trademarks is it only leaks after the vehicle sets overnight.

2003 lincoln aviator/how do you know if there's motor damage


Your car shouldn't have just suddenly started burning oil. Its possible it's leaking in the engine compartment and the leak is dripping onto the hot exhaust manifold and the. The smoke is blowing out the back as you drive. I would think it's unlikely that the engine has been damaged since the check-engine light should have come on if the oil level was low enough to cause damage.

If hii find that bluish smoke is coming from the exhaust pipes, then the next thing to check is whether it smokes on acceleration or deceleration. If the latter, it may be just a valve issue. If it smokes a lot on startup, then it may be rings.

2002 Toyota RAV4 passenger side floor Water


Hi, we also have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 and developed a leak in the front driver's side of the car. After much research, we discovered that the drain wells from our sun/moon roof were clogged. If you have one of these, I suggest that you open the sun roof and look carefully. You will notice some tiny little holes in front and in the rear of the sun/moon roof tracks. Over time, these become clogged with dust and debris. You need to find a long, sturdy piece of thin wire and run it down the holes. To test if you have properly unclogged these, take a small amount of water and pour it down the holes. You should see water coming out of the drain wells under the car around the rear of the front tires. Hope this helps.
