Usual places for this car are the oil pump seal under timing cover, valve cover and the o-ring around the distributer shaft

also, check to see if PCV valve needs replacing, this puts excess pressure on the oil system

You can find a small vacuum leak in your 2002 Toyota Camry with a diagnostic tester. The diagnostic tester can pinpoint virtually any vacuum leak.

To answer your question; I would say your Freon is low and you need a recharge but it also tells me you have a leak somewhere.

There is not enough information to answer this question

The Camry could have a vacuum leak. If there is a vacuum leak, then there can be a whistling sound until the vacuum system is full of air.

Oil can either be burned, or it can leak

Shampoo the engine to clean it. Check for leaks in a day or so depending on how bad the leak is. Replace the component causing the leak. If you still can't find the leak you can put dye in the engine oil and look for the leak with a black light.

You do not have many choices either replace it or if the leak is not sufficient buy one of those leak fix bottles.

Need to know if it is a coolant leak, oil leak, vacuum leak, exhaust leak or compression leak and exactly where the leak originates then we can talk about fixing it.

You don't. If it needs refrigrant, it has a leak. Take this to a professional. You have neither the tools nor the expertise to repair.

Low coolant level, internal or external coolant leak or faulty thermostat.

Cover suspected area with talcum powder or similar substance to try to determine where leak originates Valve cover? Engine Seal? Timing chain cover? Oil filter? Oil sending unit?

Clutch fork or cable broken. it might have a hydrolic leak. Check the master in the clutch

could be timing It can be many things. I would suspect you have a vacuum leak.

There are some oil additives you can get, that might stop the leak. But if the leak has developed, the only way to fix it is to replace the seal.

User Avatar

Shouldn't have to add any unless you have a leak in the system.

User Avatar

It means that you have a leak somewhere and the system can't keep to maintain vacuum. If the level of fluid does not drop it does not mean that you do not have a leak. It did not have time to develop.

If you mean the brake master cylinder, then squealing might mean that you have a vacuum leak.

A leak from any water hose or the water pump, or even a freeze plug may be dripping down the side of the engine, making it appear it is a leak from under the engine. You need to get under the vrhicle to find exactly where the coolant is leaking from.

$4 to $5 for Toyota o-ring. Don't use after-market. 1 hour labor. Go to dealership because they will warranty it for 12 months. It may leak again after 6 - 10 months. If u buy the Toyota part and give to your mechanic, u will get no warranty.

Have you tried tightening it ? Always start with the free simple things first, it usually is one of them.

The oil leak is coming from the valve cover gasket and leaking onto the exhaust manifold, the rubber valve cover gaskets get hard from the engine heat and start to leak, you will have to replace the rubber valve cover gaskets to stop the oil leak

It has been damaged or the seal has deteriorated

User Avatar

Check to see it the valve cover bolts are torqued to specs. If this does not stop the leak, the gasket needs replacing.
