22re oil leak

I have a 22re that is spraying oil from the front of the motor. I replaced the oil cover seal and o ring. there was a small groove in the balancer so i bought a sleeve for it. Put everthing back together and it still sprays oil from the front. any ideas????

I had the same problem a few years ago. The harmonic balancer already had a sleeve repair in it and it looked in perfect shape. I ended up replacing the hormonic balancer with a new one. At the same time I did replaced the PCV valve. I don't know if the PCV was clogged or not, or if it had anything to do with it or not, but that was it for me. No more leaks after that.

Good luck!

How did you install the o-ring? I had to use grease to hold it in place. Could just be that it dropped out of the groove. Another simple thing is checking to see if all the bolts are there. I had a leak and it turned out to just be a missing bolt.

yea other loose bolts on the cover can cause oil leaks also. Sure its comeing from the lower oil pump area? Seen leaks from between the timing chain cover and head make it look like it was comeing from down there also.

I had to pull the radiator, fan, belts, etc to find the oil leak on mine.

It was the oil pump o-ring on the top right side of the oil pump, could NOT see where it was coming from with out everything else removed.

Good luck.

I had a pretty bad oil leak from the crank oil pump seal. It looked like the previous owner replaced the front seal with an aftermarket POS. The water pump was also leaking, so that got replaced. Loaded the oil pump teeth with wheel bearing greese to help get pressure and went with a toyota front seal. I believe the aftermarket seal wasnt hammered all the way down, it was just chilling flush with the face where the balancer slid on. I hammered the toyota seal all the way down, didnt leak a drop today.

Well if its not a toyota OEM part its a piece of shit. I replaced the o ring with a toyota oring which is way better. That fixed it. The one i bought from the auto parts store got pinched in the install. The toyota one fit way better.


Thanks again guys for the help

I have a similar problem. I have a motor I installed a couple years ago with less than 40,000 miles on it. I did an oil change and on my way to Fordyce trail the oil pan gasket started leaking between the 2 bolts on the front of motor. I've replaced the gasket 3 times now, slowed the leak but still leaks while running.
When I changed the oil I used Napa brand oil which I haven't run in a while. I've always run 5w30, my brother says 10w30 is manufacture recommendation.
I've gotten the cork gasket from Napa for my replacements, put small amount of even dabs of rtv across both sides of gasket, cleaned the sealing surfaces with wire wheel, and torqued bolts evenly from the center working my way out. I did that pattern about 5 times till it was tight. Waited an hour for rtv to dry then double checked to make sure they were snug. Waited till the next morning, filled with oil then started. Started leaking by the time I got to end of rode when I checked it.
When my brother had a pcv problem it blew out the dipstick before any of the gaskets
Napa oil problem? Napa gasket problem? Pcv? Other?

If it's the oil pan, I would recommend getting a tube of the FIPG Toyota gasket maker. When I had my pan off after installing a new head, timing chain kit, and timing cover(water pump, and oil pump too), this is what I used and it worked perfectly. I didn't use the cork gasket that came with engnbldr engine gasket kit.

A couple of other places to use FIPG...

-There is one bolt for the oil pump that needs FIPG on the threads.
-I also used it where the head meets the timing cover and block.

Just my 2 cents, I hate oil leaks.

I'll give that a try. Found it on eBay for $15! That shits pricey, what place would give the best deal?
Definitely the oil pan, I can see it dripping out. I tapped the pan around the bolts with a punch and hammer before last removal to make sure it wasn't warped
Its been driving me crazy, I lose almost a quart after 150 miles
