Full Version: Oil seal- leak now low oil pressure
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I have a 1988 corolla, 4A-F engine 212,000 miles, central PA. It has been leaking oil from the crankshaft seal for almost a year. I have left it go, as oil loss not that great but a big oily mess in right wheel area. The belts are starting to get oily now so I need to do something. Last week the low oil pressure light is flickering on at low RPM and idle. My question is: can a very bad oil seal cause a low oil pressure or do I now have a bad oil pump? It looks like the oil pump is right behind seal, driven off crank but I am having trouble getting the oil pan down because of 2 screws located above engine support cross member.
