    Is it actually still leaking, or is the manifold just burning off the built up oil?

There is a proper tightening sequence for the valve cover bolts. I've found it extremely helpful to put a bead of RTV on the valve cover gasket to help ensure a solid seal. I've had problems with the aluminum threads in the head stripping out before reaching torque spec. You can use longer bolts in some of the holes on the head if you have stripping problems.

You should also wait 12 hours before starting the car, as you want the seal to take.

What would leak oil onto the starter


the oil leak could be a bad valve cover gasket needing replacement, a head gasket leaking oil, a leaking intake gasket and oil running down along the engine block and dripping. it could be an oil pressure switch that is leaking. it is near the starter while driving or engine running can spray oil onto the starter. unless the oil leak is very bad and has been leaking a long time onto the starter will not cause it to act like a dead battery even then not likely. have a starter draw test down to check condition of the starter.

Almost certainly it is coming from the rear bank cam cover gasket, for which leak the Camry V6 is notorious. Other common places are the distributor shaft o-ring seal, the crankshaft nose seal (replaceable), and the oil filter adapter bracket (if fitted)

If you get the cam cover gaskets done, specify Toyota parts, as the aftermarket parts don't last, they harden quickly.

I did this job on mine using aftermarket parts, and it leaked again inside 2 years. Sigh, once more, but with genuine Toyota gaskets etc this time, and it hasn't leaked since. So that's my tip, use genuine bits.

Having an oil leak at the bottom of my camry, not the oil pan gasket what else could it be.


There are three other area's that can leak, here they are in order of how often they occur
1.Engine Valve cover gasket(s) (2 if V6 engine), oil runs down the engine and drips off the pan.
2.Rear crankshaft seal leaking
3.Front crankshaft seal leaking. Oil is blown back by air pressure while driving and rips off of pan.

Hi i have a 1994 dodge caravan it is leaking oil can this be fix im worry that we would have to save money for a van for my kids thanks


The Chrysler minivan products all had leaking problems. I have had 5 or 6 different Dodge or Plymouth minivans from 88 to 99. How bad is it. The most common thing is Valve cover leaks. Front and rear seals in the engine leak as well as the oil pan gasket. If its leaking a little bit at a time open the hood and look at the front and rear of the engine. Do you see grease and oil that has gone down the sides of the engine? Do you see a lot of grease on the engine with some clean streaks going through it. You may be able to see where its leaking from. If you know someone that knows what their doing have them change the leaky gasket/s. If not you can probably have it repaired for less than buying another van unless other things are seriously wrong with the van.
Hope this helps... Dale

Leaking oil from the engine ...camry 1996 v6 3.0L


Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

RECOMENDATION:
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

INFO: PCV
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

2.2l toyota camra engine has pressure leaking from engine when oil fill is removed from valve cover, is this normal, i also have small oil drip at pan gkt.


replace the pcv valve. If it is not working it will allow pressure to build up in the crankcase. this will cause leaks everywhere.
