Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. my name is ***** ***** I will do all I can to help. Are you noticing any spots where you park? or are you having to add more than 1 or 2 quarts of oil between oil changes? Trying to get an idea of how bad it is leaking if indeed it is. thank you.
Hello, sorry for the delay, If you don't notice any spots, and it doesn't use any oil, then I would definitely question the severity of the leak. it sounds like it may be just seeping some to me. It would be motor oil that would leak at the timing chain cover. The cover is in the front near the harmonic balancer at the front of the engine that spins all the belts, if you take a flashlight and look down there and don't see anything leaking, and don't notice any spots. then I wouldn't worry about it. Maybe at next oil change, get someone to double check it, but it doesn't sound like it is leaking bad enough to me to warrant a replacement at this point. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you.
