Toyota Camry 2006 leaking oil

Asked by Sep 01, 2013 at 01:42 PM about the Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My daughter's 2006 Toyota Camry (88K on it) is apparently leaking oil. The mechanic wants to replace the crankshaft oil seal (including R&L transmission) for $1,000. I'm floored that it would need such a costly repair at this point.

It's all labor cost, you have to remove a fair amount of parts to get to it. Try some other mechanic to see if they can do it for less. How much oil is leaking? Might just want to top it off every week depending on the amount of oil that is leaking.

what is involved here? disconnecting hoses, pulling out the radiator....take the belt off...get a harmonic balancer puller....seal hook to pluck the old one out, and a new one (like four bucks max)~ you can do this~

...now if it is the Rear Main....time to get a new clutch at the same time to take advantage of the R+R situation...again these seals are inexpensive~ four hour job...don't let them charge you more~

Number 1 let's go slow.get a piece of cardboard.put it under the car where you think the leak is coming.you now know what area the leak is coming from.now get a flashlight and chase that leak down.if it coming from under the car (chock) your tires so car does not move.have a (guy) get under the car w/light and find that leak/maybe take a picture.take rhe picture to your parts store.your a mechanic
