View Full Version : Oil Leak

My car is leaking pretty bad right now.

I'm sure the oil pan seal is shot.

Is that an actual gasket you have to buy, or is it Permatex?

What else should I check.

it is a gasket. if that don't fix it you could also check the cam, crank, and oil pump seals. it's i little extra work to pull the timing covers but it'll give you a chance to inspect the timing belt too. also check the valve cover gaskets. they love to leak oil down the side of the motor due to the angle the motor is mounted at. that's toyota's gift to you.

Yeah the back end of the valve cover is leaking down. I think the distributor seal is leaking as well.

The 4AFE in the parts ST that I HAD was sealed at the pil pan with an orange gasket material.

5SFE different?

Hey.. if you need the 4AFE distributor seal kit - we have it. :)
