SOURCE: 1994 camry oil leak
Before you start removing the oil pan to reseal it, you need to rectify the leak between the oil cooler and the block. Interestingly enough, (in a pinch) the rubber gasket from the (genuine) Toyota oil filter is the same gasket that seals the cooler to the block. Aftermarket filter gaskets will NOT work. Remove the filter, carefully take off the gasket, remove the oil cooler, take off the old rubber gasket, and put the oil filter's gasket onto the cooler, and bolt it all back up. (You should buy this gasket from a dealer) Clean the area real good with cleaner, and THEN check for additional leaks.
Hope this helps, and THNAKS for choosing FixYa. Please feel free to comment back if you need any additional info. The graciousness of a FIxYa rating would be greatly appreciated.
