Hi everyone, My '04 sportivo has a slow-ish leak, it seems like its below or near the PCV valve but I wanted to get your opinion on what it is and how to fix it. I have about 195,000 kms on it, and need to do an oil change anyway so figured I may as well fix this beforehand. An image album is linked here The last image is probably the most helpful, by my guess. A key thing to note is that I dont really know what I'm looking at, like names of stuff. I've done a rocker cover gasket replacement in an SR20 with the help of a friend, and will probably get his help again but hoping to get a head start on what the issue is. thanks!
Hi All, Just recently replaced the dogbone "Steady Bar" on my old mans Camry (2AZ-FE) and noticed quite a few oil leaks down the right hand side of the engine, also some leaks around the valve cover and power steering very damp around the reservoir and hoses. Dad has been complaining about the oil level on the dipstick slowly going down.. Car only has about 70,000kms on it Firstly the power steering leak, the whole reservoir and both feed and return hoses were quite damp with p/s oil. The oil level seemed to be a bit below the low marker. I traced the feed hose all the way down behind the engine to the p/s pump and could see the pump and high pressure fitting were quite damp as well. From what I've searched online, it seems the hoses/hose clamps are the main culprits. Anybody here experience this problem? The other leak is the engine oil, there are small signs around the valve cover gasket which I'm planning to replace this weekend, but the more concering leak is around the timing chain cover - best described in the pics below. I haven't a clue where it's coming from, on one corner it looks like it's from the headgasket but it can also be seen behind the pulleys and down the cover. I'm also thinking the PCV valve needs replacing, as there's probably pressure build up in the crankcase (possibly causing some of these leaks) Any help or input appreciated. Cheere fellas
