1997 Toyota camry oil pump leak
Customer came in to my shop with a complaint of severe oil leak.The car a 1997 Toyota camry with a 2.2 liter 5SFE engine. The vehicle had over 220000 miles. Wehad the car on the lift with engine running and noticed oil pouring out from the oil pump housing . The 5SFE engine has a thin rubber gasket between the oil pump cover and the timing cover which becomes brittle and cracks over a period of time.The job involves removal of the accessory belts timing cover etc. We recommended the replacement of the timing belt water pump cam and crank shaft seals which the customer agreed to. The job involves three hours of labor time.
