Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Possible rolled gasket during install? Missing moon caps in front or back of cylinder head?
Was this installed by you or a shop?
Is this the drivers side? Did they happen to do an oil change to?
Was the valve cover just replaced as in today/yesterday and you think its something that they did, or was it replaced like a week or so ago and now its leaking.
These valve covers can easily roll when installing, event just a little section of it, you wouldn't be able to tell until you remove the valve cover and see the rolled or event pinched gasket.
I understand what your saying I just find it odd that the day off a repair, you start leaking oil ? It wasn't leaking like this before it was worked on but now it is?
See attached picture, if it rolled where circled in red, the leak would travel down the back side of the timing cover and com out on the lower passenger side of the block.
See attached, same two spots
Can you circle leak point in this picture?
Maybe this is a power steering leak then? How is the fluid level in the power steering resivior?
It was dripping off those two hoses? I don't think it would be anything from engine, I would suspect power steering fluid, or event transmission fluid if the leak was that far forward.
