I have an '08 Sequoia Limited. Took it to a local shop on Thursday to have the oil changed for amsoil. My wife drove it Friday and yesterday. This morning (Sunday) I find that there is oil on the ground where the truck was parked. I followed the DIY instructions and get under the front of the truck.

There's oil all over the skid plate, and as I remove the 3 bolts from the back of it and it drops slightly, more oil pours out. I got the skid plate off....without whacking myself in the head. There is a bolt located next to the black piece that holds the oil cartridge. This is where I'm leaking oil. I tried tightening it first. Start the engine and more oil leaks. I loosen the bolt enough to take it off and then tighten it again. Yes I did loose a decent amount of oil. Start the engine, and again I'm still leaking oil.

I will be calling my local shop tomorrow and taking the truck back in.
Any other suggestions? Anyone have this issue before?

Thanks,
Jeremy

That is the bolt that holds the oil pump cooler relief valve. I will speculate someone thought it may be a drain of some sort and popped it lose. If that is the source of the leak a new crush washer installed under the bolt head should seal it up.
