I have a 2000 Toyota Camry and it is leaking oil by the power steering pump. I replaced the power steering pump and valve cover gasket. My next thing to replace would be the oil pump seal, camshaft seal and crankshaft seal. Do you think this would fix the problem or should I check something else before I have a mechanic tear down the engine.
Have you de-greased the engine to determine where the oil leak is actually coming from? If you just tell a shop to replace every oil seal you have, you will be getting one heck of a bill. If you tear that deep into it, they will be talking you into changing out your timing belt, water pump, and everything else. If you have never had your timing belt done, I would suspect it's about time though.
This was good insight. Do you know how much this job would cost to replace the camshaft seal, oil pump seal and crankshaft seal.
In this video, you can access all three by removing the timing cover. Once the cover is removed, you will be looking at exactly the same thing in the second video. Usually just the timing belt, water pump and pulley replacement will run you around $1200. You may be looking at $1800-$2000 to have it all done. All the seals plus timing belt and water pump. It will always vary in price depending on who and where you get in done. Since they have to tear the timing belt off to replace the seals, you may as well bite the bullet and have the timing belt replaced and water pump. Nothing would be worse than to only have the oil seals done, and then a month later have the water pump or timing belt break. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wGn47W9S-E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8dwM_CVfCo The first video will show just how much has to be done just to get to the timing belt and water pump. Just to give you an idea. You may want to get a couple of estimates.
