The oil could be transmission or engine, put some cardboard under and see what colour it is, auto trans will be reddish, manual will be cleanish and smell like tom cat ****, engine will be black. To fix you have to remove the trans, get back to me when you work out what is leaking, dont run out of oil though

Camry csi 2000 oil leak between engine and transmission

Lots of Camrys do this.

The oil will typically leak from the rear main bearing seal between engine and transmission, but that will appear at the bottom of the joint line, and will not reach the exhaust. This leak is expensive to fix and is usually left as is.

A leak from the cam cover gasket can drip into the exhaust.

The other typical leak is from the distributor shaft o-ring seal. This appears at the top of the join line between engine and trans, and can blow back onto the exhaust.

Should I fix my oil leak in my 1986 Toyota Camry 1986 4 cyl.?

On this car it's almost worth the repair cost to fix many of the common problems, they are quite reliable cars. So if your mechanic thinks the rear main engine seal is leaking, or the automatic transmission torque converter is leaking , be ready to spend some money on the labor, as both repairs require that the transmission be removed. Aside from this one repair, all other work can be done with relative ease! Keep this car, over 250 k, think about selling.

Can engine oil leak into transmission on toyota corolla 1989

Sounds like you need to get your transmission serviced as the darkened color is a sign of deteroration. As for oil to somehow make it into the transmission you would need one serious oil leak and the grommet around the tranmission dipstick would have to be pretty much gone for oil to somehow make it into the housing. Needless to say I've never seen it happen.

I have a huge oil leak in my 98 Toyota Camry It leaks roughly 1 qt of oil for each hour of driving. What would be the cost of repair?

Need to find out where leak is from. Kinda sounds like a crankshaft main seal, front or rear of engine. Front one is pretty easy to change, but rear main seal leak means you have to drop transmission to get to it. But it could be another seal or gasket. Can you tell about where leak is, from oil spills on ground where parked? Look at engine. Is oil seeming to leak from bottom end or upper engine. May need to wipe or clean it off to see where fresh oil leak develops. A mechanic may need to put it on a car lift to pinpoint the leak. Good luck.

I have oil all over the hose behind the engine. Not sure if it's the hose or the engine that is spurting oil.

Check the motor oil and coolant level and top them off when the engine is cold.
Place a white card board on the ground to catch fluid while you idle the engine for few minutes.
If it's motor oil then come out of the rear main seal. The oil will leak out on the lowest spot (WHERE ENGINE MEET the transmission)
If it's coolant then it will be green and the leak can come the heater core hoses (inlet / outlet) or freeze plugs.
Ran the car for few minutes to catch a larger sample of the leaking fluid.

I have an leak comming down by the oil pan above the oil drain is on my 2000 toyota sloara I had the valvue cover gaskets replaced and im wondering if they didn't do the job right or could it be something...

Oil leak may be the oil pan gasket. you can purchase a dye at Autozone specifically made for determining where leaks are comming from . Or take the vehicle to an ASE certified repair shop. There Technicians will tell you where the leak is from.
With regards to the shift solenoid take it to an ASE Transmission repair shop have them do the repair. This is not a biggie but could turn out to be if you let it go.

Could be quite costly. Especially the rear main seal on the engine. You have to take the trans out to even get to it. I would look for something else with less problems to buy.
