Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
HelloCustomer what kind of vehicle is this?
2002 Toyota Highlander V-6
2002 Totoya Highlander V-6
Is the oil leak on the driver side, passenger side or in the front?
Did you ONLY have the belt replaced or were other items replaced at the same time?
I will be here.
Interesting way for them to word a timing belt job.
Was the oil canged also during this service?
do you only see the oil when the car is running or does it drip after shut off?
If you use a flashlight can you tell if this is dripping from the passenger side or the front of the engine? How big of a puddle is this leaving? Is the oil level low on the dipstick now?
Ok, this came from the oil filter then, you are likely seeing old oil that was drained not fresh oil.
The oil filter location is in the center front, when this is removed to be changed it is very easy to drop the filter and fill th subframe with oil which can continue to drip for days.
I recommend you have the shop that just did the service recheck this to be sure the oil filter is not leaking, likely what needs to be done here is the subframe just needs to be degreased and pressure washed out.
There are only 2 items that can DRIP engine oil in this area of the vehicle.
1- The oil filter
2- The oil seals behind the timing belt cover (there are 2 cam seals and one crank seal located there) if eitehr of these leaks it will drip in that general area as well, these should have been repalced with the timing belt if you plan on keepoing the car long term.
