Just had my 75K mile service at dealer on my 2014 Toyota Avalon. They noted small oil leak in the timing cover gasket. Estimate of 3900.00 to fix!! Help!


Is this for a gasket or for the timing chain replacement ?
It's pretty complicated engine but that seems high for just a gasket.
It may be that you were quoted for a timing chain replacement along with the gasket repair.
Ask for clarification and get a second estimate.
If it's not leaking that much and little oil spots/droplets aren't showing up on the rear of the vehicle and you check the oil all the time, $3900 will buy a lot of oil.

Leaking oil from the timing chain cover


The problem is the amount of items you have to remove so you can get to the timing chain cover, remove it and replace a $5 gasket.

You can try tightening all the bolts a LITTLE. Don't overdo it though because if you break the bolts, you are looking at more money to remove those.

  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
  3. Negative battery cable
    • Timing chain cover
    • Timing chain and guides
    • Water pump and discard the gasket
To install:
  1. Clean all mating surfaces of any residual gasket material.
  2. Install or connect the following:
    • Water pump with a new gasket and torque the bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm)
    • Timing chain guides and chain
    • Timing chain cover
    • Negative battery cable
  3. Fill the cooling system to the proper level.
  4. Start the vehicle, check for leaks and repair if necessary.

Timing cover leaking


Before you go out and replace the timing cover gasket; check to see if the timing chain tensioner is not the cause of the leak. I will bet you a FixYa rating that the tensioner is the culprit, not the cover gasket. I replace tensioners every week, and I have never had to do a cover gasket.

Also, the answer given to you by "suterman" is 100% WRONG. Your car has a timing chain, not a belt, that is why you have a tensioner, and it is leaking. And, if he had any clue about cars, he would know that you pull the balancer off BEFORE you pull the cover. In any case, you need to do little more than replace the tensioner.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice.
