4.1 model oil pan gasket
hello rav4world members!
i have a tiny oil leak, which i only notice during warmups. i had previoulsy replaced the camshaft seal, and for that project, i had to support the motor using a floor jack with a 2x4 piece of wood.
i checked around the valve cover and around the timing belt cover, and didn't see any bleeding. but i noticed wetness at the far right side at the seam between oil pan and the block ( in the back). the bleeding occurs only during warmups.
Does that ring a bell with anybody?
If it's the oil pan gasket, which i think it is, can somebody give me instructions?
can i unbolt the oil pan without unbolting the front exhaust pipe? ( i don't want the exhaust bolts to break off on me).
thanks for advices.
