99 camry 2.2 cyl Oil leak near ignition coils bracket that hold coil.
My 99 camry 2.2 cyl. leaking very slowly near bracket the holds the ignition coils. just wondering what needs to be change ? how tough job is it ? i was reading some blog it says you have Distributor plug oil leak ? and some thing half moon ?? can anyone please explain me how tough job is it and what gasket and oil seal need to be replace ? it is very slow leak so should i hold it ? I am handy man i can do it for sure but need some guidance or step/video.
Look for the actual leak to know what needs replacing. My guess is a valve cover gasket.
Sometimes you need to clean all the oil off to find the leak source.
i already checked it. i can see very tiny oil drop is accumulate under neath of ignition coil bracket and i can feel oil wet after cleaning and driving of 4-5 hours.other than that i did not see any oil leak mark.
I did clean all the oil with break cleaner than i kept noticing every drive whether any surface is getting oil wet or not and the first surface oily wet was under the ignition coil bracket so just wondering is what needs to be replace. How the oil drop is accumulate under neath of ignition coil bracket ?
Pull off the igniter coil bracket drill a small hole in the plug thread a wood screw into it and pull it out. You can clean the plug and hole real good with clorinated break cleaner or alcohol then apply ultra gray or red rtv and pop the plug back in bolt the braket back on and fill in the rest of the void with rtv. Allow a day or two for the rtv to cure oil and that is it. I have had 2 99 & 97camerys and this fixed both of them but also make sure your valve cover gasket is not leaking if so make sure to rtv around sparkpug tubes when replacing the valve cover gasket
