WE PUT your problem to Toyota experts and they say it is difficult to diagnose without seeing the vehicle or the colour of the contamination to determine whether the contamination is engine oil or transmission fluid. There is no mention of any signs of water contamination in either the transmission fluid or engine oil. Likewise, there is no mention of engine overheating. Toyota's guys suggested the following inspection: remove transmission coolant hoses from the radiator, pressurise the cooling system and check for leaks from the radiator where the transmission hoses were removed. Inspect the rear side of the timing-case area near the water pump. Remove the rocker cover to expose the rear side of the timing-case cover (just in front of timing chain). Pressurise the cooling system and check for leaks.
