Good evening, while replacing my TC fluid i noticed this sweating/leak. Appears to be hopefully coming from the oil line banjo bolt. I know these can be known for timing cover leaks though. Anyone have any experience with either leak want to give their opinion. Im going to start with replacing the bolt and gasket for the banjo and clean it up. I assume that job will be pretty simple. Any input appreciated.

That is a tough one to swallow. Love his channel. I dont plan on getting into that job. I'll let it go until the leak starts to require adding oil between changes. Im going to get it cleaned up and break the bolt free and retighten. I saw on some lexus forums that would work for that issue. Cannot hurt. Ill report back.

The van has 93k miles and i have $25k invested into it. Including purchase and maintenance. With how expensive newer vehicles are I feel the fix is worth the investment when it gets bad enough. I feel any sienna i get will eventually have the leak so im just going to stick it out. I have always had base model vehicles all my life so this limited is pretty enjoyable vs my L. Please feel free to chime in on your thoughts. Thanks for the input.

@Jhorek,

Where is the location of this leakage? On the passenger side?
Do I need to remove any part in order to check this leak?

On the passenger side. You can see the area if you turn the wheels all the way left and get down low with a flashlight.
