Best suggestion is to check valve covers and oil filters... Then if not obvious need to pressure wash or have engine steam cleaned then look for leaks. Check all fluid levels to see if any are low.

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.

Sounds like a vacuum leak. Make sure there are no ports open on the intake manifold that looks like a hose is missing.

Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model

You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

The V6 had oil leaks from

-rear bank cam cover gasket

-distributor o-ring seal

-oil filter bracket o-ring seal

-crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

-rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

The 4 cyl leaked oil from

-distributor o-ring seal

-camshaft cover gasket

-rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

Every 400 miles leaks half quart of oil

Oil leaks can come from many places. The most common are the Valve Cover Gaskets, around the Oil Pan and the Rear Main Seal of the engine. You might also want to check that your oil filter is not on crooked. Sometimes this can happen when you go to a Jiffy Lube or quick oil change service place. Even just a little crooked can result in a leak.

If you cannot follow a leak to it's source, then it is likely that your car being a 1991 is just getting old and burning more oil. You can help extend your cars life by giving it a thorough tune up and making sure to take extra good car of it. You can also start putting a thicker grade of oil in it, such as 50 weight instead of 20 or 30 weight (which are the most common).

1991 toyota supra blue smoke from tail pipe when get of the gas

The intake valve guide seals are worn and are letting oil slip by under high engine vacuum--as when you let up on the gas. The only fix is to take the cylinder head off and replace the valve guide seals. This problem is pretty normal for an older car with high mileage. It will probably run just fine. Just keep checking the oil level and keep it topped up.

Oil leak on 1991 3.0 V-6 Engine

If leak is from top at rear my bet would be that valve cover gaskets are leaking. They are not too hard to change. Good Luck

Knock sensor location

under the intake manifold, if it is turbo there should be two of them. please note that I have seen many of these that set knock sensor codes and the problem was usually in the wiring. wire will ohm ok but the problem is faulty shielding that allows other voltages to leak into the circuit. easiest fix is to buy some shielded microphone wire from radio shack and run a new wire from the sensor to the ecu.
