    my oil pan is leaking on the rear side... i wiped it down, came back in a few days and itwas back, sent pictures to a friend whos a mechanic and he said to change the gasket with rtv after we ruled out a leaking timing chain cover(no evidence of oil from that area)...just wondering if theres any tricks/tips when doing this procedure...i read that you have to drop the front diff to get the oil pan out but it seemed to be geared to the 1st gen tacomas...when i look at the pan it looks like i should be able to get it out without doing anything drastic...just looking for some advice before im waste deep and realize i cant finish the job

    Just make sure you don't remove the AT pan. But sorry haven't had experience with pan removal.
