    Hello all, I just replaced my front timing chain cover on my 1995 2.4 2RZ FE with what I thought was a direct replacement. However, my original engine oil dipstick tube is too large for the hole that is machined in the new front cover. Would anyone know what year Taco dipstick tube went to a small diameter?

    Thanks in advance!

    The timing cover (and therefore the dipstick tube bore size on the timing cover) is the same for 1995-2004. I suspect you probably just don't have the union installed that fits between the dipstick tube and the timing cover.

    Dipstick Tube Union:
    90405-10016 - 1995 - 02/1999
    11459-70010 - 02/1999 - 2004
