    I have the same problem on a used car I am working on. It may not be the housing itself. I'm finding that the timing cover gasket is what appears to be leaking. I've been fighting with it for some time now. The front cover gasket should only be about 25 bucks at most parts houses. good luck.

Try going to a regular parts store rather than to a dealer, if you are unsuccesfull there then you will need to go to an auto wrecker. Good luck andI hope that this helps, And please remember to take the time to rate all responses that you get. Thanx

2have an oil leak around the oil filter housing, maybe around the censor....could it be a gasket or could it be coming from the nut that holds the censor?


It could be either but it is impossible to say without inspecting the car. If the leak is around the filter housing I suspect it is more likely from the oil filter. The oil filter gasket may have failed or the filter may not be screwed on firmly enough. However filters do not have to be screwed on very tightly to prevent a leak. If over tightened they can be difficult to remove and the rubber gasket can even be damaged.

I suggest you have the oil changed in the car and have the oil filter changed at the same time. This is very cheap to do and a new decent quality brand oil filter (such as MOTORCRAFT which meets Original Equipment specs for your car)) is only about $10 - if that. Whilst the oil and filter are being changed from beneath the car, with the vehicle on the hoist, it should be possible to examine the likely source of the leak.

Where are you seeing the oil leaking from? Remember that gravity will cause the oil to drop down. The wind will also cause the oil to blow back while you drive. Look for the forward most and top most areas that are covered with oil. Common leak areas are the front oil seal (oil will look like it's coming from the bell-housing. Another common leak is the shifter plate gasket, just below the shift lever. Oil will be found draining from this area. I have also seen shoddy mechanics use the wrong bolts to hold the rear housing onto the main housing of the transmission. If the bolts used are to short, oil will leak between the main housing and the tail-shaft housing. Charlie

Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter


If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.
