    I have a Toyota hilux 2.0L and bought in 1999. There oil leakage just under the fuel pump. How do I fix it?


    Hilux 1rz-e 2lt 2002 minimal oil consumption 70ml per 600km.
    No apparent power loss .running like new everyday.
    Probably just do timing chain and sprockets with guides.
    As soon as possible just to be safe . Or a complete 0 km rebuild.
