2014 4-cyl Toyota Camry
All book maintenance kept up to date by mileage or time, whichever comes first.
Oil always changed every 5,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first due to severe use driving.
Oil dipstick checked every two weeks; no sign of any oil loss. When oil was changed several months ago no sign of valve seeping.
Yesterday during inspection so I can renew the license tags the mechanic found the right corner valve slightly seeping oil. Recommendation was to keep an eye on it but not needing repair yet as it is such small seepage just starting.
Question: So aside from watching for any leakage showing on the garage floor, watching for any apparent oil mess I can see from looking under the hood, and keeping close eye on the oil dipstick, anything I need to look for???
Remember, I am not a DIYer nor am I physically able to look under the car, take anything apart, etc. I’m an older, arthritic lady who keeps an eye on fluid levels, fills the washer fluid as needed, keeps tires aired, and changes air filters in both cabin and engine as needed. Unable to tackle anything beyond those limitations.
