Hi, is it just water? or does it look more like coolant? if just water, and seems to only leak when a/c or defrost is used, this would likely be the evaperator drain tube letting moisture out. this is normal. but if looks like coolant(reddish pink, or possibly green) this likely means you have a leaking water pump. the water pump is driven by timing belt which is located behind the timing cover directly behind the drive belts. if/when you go to get it repaired, the timing belt should be replaced at the same time. also, you may want to have the timing belt tensioner, and timing belt pulleys relpaced at this time as well, it's good insurance for any repairs that may be needed later down the road after service. make sure to have the drive belts checked when repairing timing belt, they will be removed during repair, if they need to be replaced due to wear, re-install new ones at no extra labor charge.

This is going to be your water pump. It is important to get this replaced because you are leaking coolant, which may lead to you getting a new engine if the level drops too low.

Broke timing belt


If the timing belt broke, your car won't run. Fortunately, it's not too expensive to replace, and as long as you are at it, may as well replace the water pump. Usually they have to dismount that in order to get at the timing belt. Generally that is that case, but it all depends on how each car is set up.

I am leaking oil on the engine side closes to the firewall can see it or find it


You don't say what engine, but I'd assume a 4-cyl. It is almost certainly the cam cover gasket seal leaking, which is so common it is a Camry standard. This is true also of the 6-cyl. When replacing it I'd recommend genuine Toyota parts, since the generic parts don't last.

1996 vw vr6 engine coolant leak in front of engine


A blown head gasket doesn't necessarily mean there is water in the oil. Check for bubbles coming into the coolant tank. Take car for a short drive to build up coolant pressure and you should be able to see where it is leaking from a bit easier. It is possibly coming from a heater pipe or core plug.

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.

Leaking water down the side of motor from the head gasket


it can possibly be a broken gasket seal in your water pump, i recommend that if this is the problem replacing the timing belt and water pump at the same time. i have a 1987 toyota camry station wagon as well and the same thing happen to me, if its leaking from teh side, its most likely the waterpump which is located underneath the alternator and attatched behind the timing belt
