PostSubject: Leaking Sump Pan on Hiace 1994 2.8D - need advice   Mon Sep 04, 2017 6:11 pm

Hey Hiace Lovers!

This is my first time posting here, so hi! Looking for some advice on our beloved Hiace here.

We have a 1994 Hiace 2.8D which has developed a leaky sump pan. It seems the pan has corroded over time which has led to some spots becoming porous and leaking engine oil.

Now, on our search for a replacement sump pan, we've contacted Toyota who've given us the unfortunate news that these parts are no longer produced and they are apparently impossible to get hold of.

I refuse to believe that we will not be able to get a replacement pan from somewhere, whether newly produced or 2nd hand, and am reaching out to the hive mind here to see whether you can offer any advice or if anyone has experienced such an issue?

Does anyone know who/where we could contact in the UK who might be able to help source this?

Thanks all. Much appreciated in advance Smile

Mine leaks, Hi by the way, I have a 2.4td with a porous sump and it seems its the extended part that suffers with moisture sitting on the flat top part, the part number is still available for my 2.4 but at £185 plus vat plus postage I'm making do and will try to put sum chemical metal on the flat top part to see if it stops the leak

I'd take it off and take it to a specialist welder to have repaired.

If the 2.8 is the same as my 2.4 then it's either engine lift of the mounts or cross member drop apparently, nightmare both ways

I'm guessing new vs repair still needs the same pain though?
Does the crossmember unbolt? In some cars they can be unbolted for access.
Is the pan steel or aluminium?

Maybe Toyota replaced it with a different part number with a better design, not sure how you'd find out though.

Yep, its true that to get the pan off the engine needs to be hoisted...

@MickB - have you tried fixing yours with chemical metal? What was the outcome?

I guess no one has any idea about how to source a 2nd hand one in the UK?

the extended part

Is there any way to clamp a band around this that could hold a nice piece of rubber against it?
Maybe with a custom strip of aluminium that bolts into one if the sump bolt holes?

I suspect the oil will stop any glue based solution from working so perhaps an equivalent of a 'finger over the hole' method might do..

Its the access GPW, it is so tight when lying under the van, it really needs to go over a pit or on a ramp, the sump is quite tight inside the chassis/cross member too

Feen, no not yet its a job to do, like a lot I have Mad I had the rear main seal done few months back as that was leaving a lot of oil, this is a smidge I can put up with for a bit
