Hello, my 2006 Altis has for the past 4 months been showing mysterious oil drops under the engine. i used a tissue paper on a cardboard box to see the colour of the oil and it was light brownish. after a month i showed it to two different mechanics they said power steering pump is leaking, i took it to toyota rawal motors they said engine timing seal is leaking and they will open up the whole engine fix the seal with Silicone! and replace the timing belt etc take one day leave car.
now the funny thing was during this time i had been observing all the oil levels very closely and neither the engine oil or power steering oil had dropped even a mm. i then took it to lahore and back on motorway and again none of the levels moved even a mm and the oil drops actually stopped after the long drive for a few weeks. later i had the engine oil changed afterwards from mineral to semi synthetic and the level stayed still stayed constant. its been 4 months now and all fluid levels are exactly where they should be steering feels just as good engine is its usual so what could be the issue??
car has only done 56000km and is driven once every 3 months on motorway and once a week around a block. mostly stands
