Is replacing an oil pan in a 2004 toyota camry an easy fix ?


It isn't too hard. You need to drain the oil first ( make sure to change the gasket around the plug every time you remove and replace the plug or it will leak), then drop the oil pan... put down lots of absorber pads as there will be droppings. Have a rag on hand for your hands. Scrape and clean the old seal where the oil pan meets the engine then put on a new one once it is thoroughly cleaned. Put on new pan, or repair old one.... again make sure to replace oil pan gasket and new oil drain gasket ( around plug..) since your going that far get a new oil filter also.... fill the new filter with oil before installing, fill up the engine with new oil..ps. It takes a few minutes to run down so wait between oil bottles and check the level ( don't run the car) fill the oil until the dip stick reads full ( remember wait a few minutes between each liter of oil to give it a chance to leak into the bottom of the engine). I believe it is around 4.5 quarts including the amount needed to fill the filter.

Engine is making oil


An engine does not make oil, but it can spill the oil that should be inside. You could have an oil leak, which means that oil will be leaking from either the front or the rear oil seal. The front oil seal is just behind the crank pulley, the one that drives the fan / alternator belt. If oil is leaking from there, suspect the front seal.
If you have oil leaking from the bell housing, that the the bell shaped metal thingy between the engine and the gearbox. you can suspect the rear oil seal.
If you inspect the engine and see oil leaking from the oil pan under the engine, you have a leaking pan gasket. This can usually be solved by tightening the pan bolts, a whole lot of bolts underneath the engine.
Finally, and this is probably the worst, if you see oil around the breather pipe that goes from the valve cover on top of the engine to the gas intake system, you have leaking compression, that means either the valve stem seals are leaking or the compression rings are finished, and you will have to have the engine overhauled, or at the very least have the cylinder head overhauled.
If the rings are suspect, you will also have excessive smoke out of the exhaust when you drive, especially when you accelerate. Check the exhaust for signs of wet oil.

How to remove oil dip stick


ITS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE BEHIND THE A/C COMPESSOR AND BELOW THE VALVE COVER.. LOOKING AT THE MOTOR WITH HOOD UP IT WILL BE ON THE LEFT SIDE IT SHOULD STAND UP PRETTY TALL. IF YOU ARE WANTING TO REMOVE THE WHOLE DIP STICK TUBE. ITS ATTACHED TO THE VALVE COVER BY 1 BOLT.. TO REMOVE ENTIRE DIP STICK TUBE WHICH GOES DOWN INTO THE OIL PAN.. IT SHOULD HAVE A YELLOW RING FOR DIPSTICK.

Leaking transmission fluid


Check transmission pan for leaks. More than likely that's it. Sometimes it could be the o ring around the dip stick. Check for both and replace leaking one.

How to do a oil change


Pull the drain plug, change the oil filter, replace the drain plug. Add oil until the dipstick reads full. Start the engine and make sure the oil light goes out. Check for leaks around the oil filter with the car running. Recheck the oil level, add as necessary. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Oil leak


Northstar engine, that's about right. They do take about 8 quarts.
The most common place they leak at is at the oil filter housing that attaches to the block of the engine.
