LEAKS

2000 Toyota Camry • 2.0L 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 164,000 miles

I am having serious fluid leaking from the right side of the engine and assuming it is oil as I have had to add more than 1 quart this past week. This just started about a month ago and is getting worse. Recent maintenance on the vehicle includes new shocks on the front, replacement of two motor mounts, brakes and new tires all around. I have added stop leak and has had no results so looking for answers

You need someone who can actually look at it to see where the leak is. Look for the highest point you see oil. One thing that can help is to wash the area if necessary, then add a small bottle of dark purple dye to the oil. Search a little while later with a black light. The dye will show up as a bright yellow stain that you can follow back to the source.
