DO NOT USE DORMAN HELP KIT # 82572 To Fix Leaking Oil Pump On Your 1998 Toyota Camry 2.2 5S-FE
This job came back to bite in less than a year. I originally installed (against my better judgement) this Dorman kit 82572 . Lesson learned. All of the other ones I have done in the past I have used OEM parts and have never had a come back. I hope this helps you save time and money.

    Those come backs are a way of learning lessons. I twisted wrenches for many years and luckily back in the old days we didn't have all this Chinese carp, I still wrench every now and then but at 72 those days are becoming fewer. Hang in the fella cause your going too love retirement ! Keep the sunny side up and the greasy side down !'-)
    he greasy side down !;-)

    Thanks for put this on. I have a oil pan leak. My Camry is a 2000 Camry LE 4 cylinder. Needs major work and repair for which I'm doing. The Camry was given to me by my cousin it was his father's Camry. I've already bought the oil pan gasket. It's not Dorman. It's a Fel – Pro. I don't know if they are any good but I'm sure you'll tell me. Again thanks for your video.

    on a 1.5L 3EE engine be sure pressure relief hole , just outboard of pump shaft journal, is not plugged from below by excessive oil pan gasket sealant. if this passage is plugged you will blow the seal outward. any engine that uses a lip seal on the oil pump shaft has to have this pressure relief passage which drains back to crankcase

    I will remember that one

    I’ve done this on both camrys I’ve owned and yes oem only!

    No China parts goes into my Toyota. Only Japanese. Dorman was once ok stuff, but they turned Chinese on us. And for the record, I think China makes some good stuff, just not car stuff.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Mccauliff says:

    you dont seem to be to smart , you complain about a particular parts store quite often but keep going back , same thing with dorman . trying taking your advice before giving it .

    I've learned 20 years ago to use Toyota OEM parts. There is a reason why Toyota is the most reliable car company.

    just about to do this to 1999 camry this morning thank you LORD for showing me this video

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars databug88 says:

    Thank you so much for posting Toyota part numbers I had to go thru 10 videos finally yours posted OEM part numbers. I agree when it comes to seals and gaskets always buy OEM.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rick james says:

    That part is trash, because it failed on you. It was a super star until it rolled into your garage. All that bad mouthing of the Dorman part NOW after it failed on you. You thought it was a good part when you installed it on the failed one. Sometimes saving money, is not really, saving you money.

    I've had the exact same thing with motorcycle fork seals. Same type of inner sprung shaft seal I guess?

    Bought some aftermarket ones. One year later one was puking fork oil all over my bike. Bought OEM ones, and they tend to last me more than twice as long for a very similar price.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Labelle says:

    O e m is the part that I get period

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Berg says:

    As long as people continue to buy Dorman (or cheap crap from any country) they will continue to make it. Unfortunately people tend to put price over quality.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil Lully says:

    That really sucks having to do the same job twice and loosing the labor costs! I know what you mean
    Eric O. I have had to replace a fuel pump twice because those after market crap pumps fail with a high rate! So the second time around an access pannel was cut to get the pump out in about 15 or 20 minutes. Ugh. Those cheap aftermarket junk parts. I feel for ya.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Dorn says:

    i did the exact same thing

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J. Wilson says:

    Eric. I have a 2000 Toyota Camry 2.2L. I am contemplating changing the oil pump seals/o-ring. I do not have a lot of tools. I would like to know if you know of an easy, cheap way to loosen the harmonic balancer so I could access the oil pump. Again, all I have are a few hand tools and a jack stand. I cannot afford to pay my mechanic to do this (at $125 per hour labor). I have watched many of your videos and you seem to be able to generate solutions on the fly.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Fisher says:

    So – obviously a dealership can sell you the best quality, original supplier probably. But do auto part stores have OEM parts – that's where I'm confused? (Don't they have some?) Do I just ask if they have an OEM BRAND part available at the auto part store, or what? I've always gone cheap, except where the repair is important or time consuming, like this one. FYI: I'm rolling in a '96 Camry w/ the same oil leak that was repaired – now it's leaking on the other side of the engine – so I'll be replacing the distributor o-ring next week.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yumpin Yiminy says:

    I think you one the best private mechanic's I have ever seen. I keep seeing video after video of Dorman products that are horrible. I will keep that in mind.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Chiodetti says:

    The crap from China is "Chinese junk!" Evert time I see that on a box or a bag, I try to avoid it unless that's the only one.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ` says:

    You're a good guy Mr. O. I'm surprised with that long time and a comeback you still didn't charge him for that jobber. I was going to ask you if you did too and you already answered. You said three hour I would have said (I assume the customer for some reason wanted to use Dorman and it wasn't you) since customer wanted this product, to charge something fair, like an hour or just half. Maybe it was your call on what to use and Toyota was far or closed at the time. But yeah I hate that all the options sometimes are Dorman.

    Comebacks, no good! Aisin makes a lot of Toyota products, factory oem. Mitsubishi makes their belts

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Garagejunky09 says:

    Bought a dorman upper control arm…lasted 8mths or so, never again

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe T says:

    Another Great Video from You! Thank you!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Lund says:

    Live and learn

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Ferguson says:

    Always use factory OEM oil seals and gaskets. Using after-market stuff just isn't worth the bother or risking damage to the engine.

    ouch!!! but you should know good parts from bad……..

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars s. fitz says:

    Thanks for the good warning. My 96 Camry 6 cyl 3.0 liter having oil leak issue. I like your other good tips too.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel says:

    I went to a local shop recently to have this repair done. I understand it involves taking the timing belt off, and understand its not a quick repair, but the parts are not a major cost. They quoted me over $600. This seems like what I would expect had I just gone to the actual Toyota dealership. Does this seem excessive for this repair or average?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil Jerome says:

    Dorman, and other Chinese made replacement parts have cost me many hours, and dollars over the years. Stay away from any replacement parts made in China.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Pedroza says:

    Thx for the infoo. Bout to change my sis camry seals. Same leak

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adnan Faridi says:

    Adding to my previous comment, NOK is OEM. When you buy this part under the Toyota brand, the o-ring is made by NOK, so you could save a few dollars by just purchasing NOK. The NOK part no. is AH0816E and I paid $5.50 for this including shipping.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adnan Faridi says:

    I must have watched this video 8 – 10 times pausing it on frames so I could read the part no because Toyota doesn't show any illustrations of this part, just says seal.

    So, I got the part number of the seal, but was not able to get it for the O-ring.

    I decide to put a comment asking for the part no. and it is right there in the description. Hahahaha.

    He mentions the name NOK, is this OEM because it is half the price of the seals being sold under the Toyota brand.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Brislawn says:

    in my estimation you'll get word of mouth by this client and you'll have plenty of new customers..God bless you

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Brislawn says:

    I checked out toyota parts for those seals your right not to bad on price ten to twelve bucks

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Brislawn says:

    honesty is great man.does the oil pan need to come off to remove the oil pump for those two seals.? I have to do it soon 2018 summer

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KR Fairfax says:

    Put a pump on next time.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cuba's Automotive says:

    Dorman, not lasting a year? I don't believe it.

    All kidding aside, that's the crappiest kit I've ever seen brand new! It's just unbelievable how this company hasn't been sued or still in biz!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Smith says:

    thanks 😁

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 3bhui says:

    Depending on how it was purchased there's the uncertainty of the source of the part. It might say Dorman or another brand but be a cheap knockoff.
