Question about 1997 Toyota RAV4
Check that it is not the rear of the sump gasket that is leaking. If not then the fix will be to remove the gear box. If manual the leak may be at the clutch shaft input seal which is relative minor fix. If auto it will be torque converter seal and shaft seal . A bit more expensive. It it is the rear main seal then the clutch ( if applicable) and flywheel have to come off as well. All in all about $20.00 dollars for seal and about 6 hours labour.

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.

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...
