Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you by discussing your request in detail. Is this a 4 cylinder, or a V6? Thanks
6 cylinder.3vz-fe engine code.
That aluminum device is the oil filter adapter
It connects to the block, and provides a convienent location for the oil filter.
Your gasket is most likely leaking; there is oil pressure passing thru this when the engine is running
the rectification is to obtain another gasket, remove the adaptor, clean the mating surfaces and refir the adaptor with a the new gasket
refit sorry for the typo
Just to ensure we are speaking of the same part, this oil filter adapter is located to the right of the oil filter and how many nuts secure it?
My personal car is a 93 camry SE-V6. Great car.
Correct. The oil filter is located at the left of the aluminum adapror, it mounts horizontally under the front exhaust manifold. The port on the engine is where you are seeing your leak. On my car, I see two nuts on studs; there may be a third, the lighting is not great outside today
Would you be able to provide a part# XXXXX what is your mileage? Mine is 451,000 kms?
Sorry, my book does not list this gasket seperatly, I only have the entire gasket kit part number. You can purchase this gasket at your nearest Toyota dealer parts dept
Ask for the "oil filter extension housing gasket"
Can i buy this separately?
I am sorry, I do not have the part number for this gasket. ALl I have is the part number for the entire gasket set. Apologies.
The flat rate time on this job would be 48 minutes.
What is the name of this gasket set, just in case?
Engine overhaul gasket set; V6 Part number 04111-62050 The cost is high, $401.13 US dollars
That is why I suggest obtaining the part seperatly.
Thank you.Since you have the same vehicle, i also need to replace the hydraulic power steering line going to the radiator fan.Do you know where the other end is connected to?
You are very welcome.
let me check on that for you
The pressure line comes from the power steering pump. After passing thru the hydraulic fan motor, it passes thru a small oil filter, the power steering fluid cooler, and then returns to the power steering reservoir.
The power steering pump on this model has two functions, providing fluid pressure to the rack and pinion, and, providing pressure to operate the cooling fan
Both fluid 'return lines' come back to the power steering reservoir
Do you have any other questions for me today? Thanks
Where is the ps fluid cooler located?
In front of the radiator, a long loop of tubing
you may have some fins on it; after 451,000 km, your cooling fins may be rusted off if you are in a area prone to allow rust
Thanks very much for your help.Nice talking to you. I will now accept.
Certainly. Please provide the full 17 digit vin.
input it with a space between each number or letter like this:
1 a 2 a 3 a 4 a 5 a 6 a ....etc
You are correct; that is the current part number. Looking at the parts catalogue, the seal is indeed called an o-ring.
Order the part, remove the three bolts, remove the old o-ring, slip on the new o-ring and bolt it back together.
You should be OK, unless the aluminum adaptor housing has a crack in it near the sealing surface.

Not a bad idea to clean the block and the adaptor off with some good spray 'brake cleaner", then wipe on a thin layer of black RTV. Good call.
You are welcome.
Thanks for the accept; it was a pleasure to assist you on this request.
