    Where to start with an oil leak, dripping from red circle area of picture

    This car drips oil from the red circle spot, it seems to be collecting at that location based on the picture.

    Minor Oil Leak

    Just acquired a 1993 80 Series (1FZ-FE) and I have located a small oil leak. The bloke I bought it from said it was from the power steering, but that doesn't seem to be the cause to me? Doesn't look like the main seal, could it be the orange o-ring on the pressure relief valve? Photo is from...

    Mystery oil leak coming from rear

    Hi guys, I’ve got a 2006 LX470 and walking to my car this morning I saw a small puddle of oil behind the right rear wheel. Upon closer inspection the leak seems to originate from 2 pipes directly behind the wheel. Am I right in thinking these are the infamous ac lines leaking? Haven’t seen the...

    Possible Rear Main Seal Leak

    Hi everyone, I am hoping to get a second opinion on a leak between the transmission and the engine. I have noticed the leak might be getting a little bit worse after I repaired the valve cover gasket and the distributor o-ring. The photos attached don't show much oil leaking because I wiped the...

I noticed oil is also leaking...

    Question about potential oil leak at front of engine- 1984 FJ60.

    Howdy, A few weeks ago I picked up my truck from Jim Dickey's repair shop, and it's running great. There were no apparent oil leaks when I dropped it off, and none when I picked it up. I know because around this time I had been inspecting it for anything wrong. Fast forward a few weeks; I'm...
