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: 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 toyota vienta 3VZ-FE 1996 - oil leak onto exhaust

Hi,

That engine will leak oil from

- cam cover gaskets (rear one drips on the exhaust)
- camshaft end seals
- distributor shaft o-ring (appears on top of transaxle housing)
- oil filter bracket to block o-ring seal (drips on front bank exhaust)
- crankshaft nose oil seal (have done with timing belt change)
- rear main seal (expensive, leave it be)

I have a 98 Rav4 with Oil leaking from Timing cover - Is is hard to get to to fix? Should it cost much at the mechanic to fix?


It must be a damaged oil seal. It's necessary to replace the timing belt and the seal. It should cost you a bit.

Oil leaking on the right hand side of oil pan rav4 1997 already change oil pan


I am trusting that you had replaced the gasket and that it was indeed sitting on there even and square with no chance of being twisted? If so, then you had also inspected the oil pan to ensure there were no hairline fractures from wear, tear or other age induced rust lines which could have had a leak originally? Lastly, the pan on this model fits on one way only or could be on backwards - hey not sure, just an idea.. as you see,. stuff happens...
Best regards

The dipstick shows your engine oil level. If it is low, add oil to the engine by locating the oil cap. Usually has the word oil on it or "Engine Oil for Gasoline Engines) on it. As for the oil leak, try and locate it as soon as possible.

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil right side front of vehicle


More than likely it would be the front seals, oil pump front shaft seal and gasket ( "o" ring), Cam seal, crank seal one of those. Have to remove timing belt in order to change these seals. I would change out all the seals and put a new timing belt on it. Depending on how many miles you have on your car I would consider a water pump as well because the timing belt also needs to be removed to replace this part. In other words... Costly repair, but instead of replacing the seals and solving the leak and then 2 weeks later the timing belt snaps, then you just paid twice for the labor. Check oil pan gasket first b4 you spend money on seals.
