    Hey all, thank you for taking the time to answer this- I’ve got a small timing cover oil leak, near the p/s pump and the oil pan, I recently replaced my valve cover gaskets, and water pump, yet still seem to have a bit of oil leak. I know that these are fairly common on the 4th gen 4Runners, yet I am wanting to know if it’s worth the replacement. I’m not losing any substantial amount of oil and it’s not dripping in driveway, but should I still be concerned, idk if I will lose oil pressure since the oil pump is on the timing cover? Is there any quick fix or stop leak that I should consider using?
