1960 corvette oil filter

I just changed the oil and oil poured out of the filter. I know there is a O ring gasket to install, I tried to place it properly. Is that the problem?

You may have double ringed the filter, this is when the old O ring stays on the filter base and you don't notice it, will leak like a sieve, pull the filter back off and check this.

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

How do I change a oil pump


  1. Drain the oil
  2. Remove the oil pan. You may have to lift or tilt the engine or remove frame members of the vehicle to do this, so it's probably the hardest part. Clean the gasket and seal surfaces on the engine block and crankshaft end bearings. Clean the oil pan. While you have the bottom of the engine open, inspect the cylinders for score marks and check for other anomalies such as sloppy piston bushings on the crank.
  3. Remove the oil inlet screen housing if it blocks access to the oil pump mounting bolts.
  4. Remove the oil pump. Clean the gasket/O-ring surface where it meets the engine block.
  5. Pour some clean oil into the outlet of the new oil pump (not so full you spill it when you install it). This will help it get oil into the engine more quickly on its first startup.
  6. Be sure you have the outlet gasket or O-ring in place!
  7. Install the new pump
  8. Clean or replace the filter screen assembly. Replace its O-ring and install on the oil pump.
  9. Reassemble the rest of the vehicle, using new gaskets and seals on the oil drain pan.
  10. Fill the new oil filter about 1/2 full of oil and install (always do this - it reduces the time the engine is turning dry after an oil change). This does not apply to vehicles that have open-face filters mounted in the bottom of the oil pan such as the 1980's Buick four-cylinder models.
  11. Add the rest of the oil in the usual manner.

Oil filter gasket blowing out with on minutes of restarting after oil filter & engine oil changed.


Hi hope this helps.
When you removed the old filter, did you check if the old oil filter rubber gasket was removed also.
Some time when you remove the oil filter the old o-ring will get stuck on the filter housing.
Then when you place the new filter on you have what is called a double gasket.
this will cause you to leak oil rapidly.
I would remove the filter and check for a double gasket.
Hope this helps FixYa
leave feedback please.

How do I change the oil on a Porsche 911 Turbo? Anything I sould know?


  • Jack up your Porsche using a floor jack and place the car securely on jack stands at all four corners using the factory jacking points.
  • 2 Place an oil container under the oil drain plug of the motor.
  • 3 Using an 8-mm allen socket, remove the drain plug at the bottom of the oil pan.
  • 4 Let the oil drain thoroughly--this will take about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • 5 Once all the oil is drained from the engine, install a new drain plug along with a new aluminum sealing washer. Tighten the drain plug to 37 lbs .

  • The oil filter cartridge is located in front of the oil pan on the right side. With an oil filter removal wrench, unscrew and remove the cartridge. Be careful of spilling oil.
  • Install a new oil filter cartridge and O-ring. Before installation, run a bead of oil around the O-ring to lubricate it. Torque the oil filter cartridge to 19 lbs.
  • Pour new oil into the oil filler neck located in the engine bay. 1998 to 2001 911s (996) take 8.5 quarts, and 2004 and up take 8.25 quarts. Newer 911s (997) take 9 quarts. When filling the engine with oil, pour in 8 quarts and then use the dipstick to get the amount of oil exact.
  • Lower the car off the jackstands.

    Oil is leaking from where the oil filter screws in. Is that the oil pump? Only leaks when car is running, kind of pours out! I replaced the oil pan gasket and its leaking from that thing that te oil filter...


    Did you check the old oil filter if the Oring is present when you remove it? If the not, the old Oring is still there, so, you have two Oring there, that's why is leaking. Remove the new oil filter and remove the other one O ring, the old one and then install it back, and don't forget to wet with oil the Oring before you install it back. ok

    Changing the oil


    Buy four quarts of oil, oil filter, you'll need couple sockets, oil pan, jack stands, hoist, and strap wrench.

    (1) Park vehicle on flat surface.

    (2) Open hood and unscrew oil filler cap.

    (3) Take oil pan and yourself under vehicle and unscrew drain plug to allow old oil to drain out of vehicle.

    (4) As oil is draining from vehicle, go ahead and prepare new oil filter by applying some oil to the rubber "O" ring on new filter. Thats therubber ring on the filter that butts up against the block when thefilter is screwed and tightened into place.

    (5) Now that the new filter is ready to be used go ahead and put drainplug back into vehicle oil pan at this point all old oil should havebeen drained out.

    (6) Go ahead and use oil filter wrench to take off old oil filter, youmay be able to use your bare hands to take this off as these arejust hand tightened let old oil drain from oil filter housing for a fewminutes. Wipe area clean with a rag before putting new filter on. Nowyou can install new oil filter remember to hand tighten new filter onlyyou won't need to use oil filter wrench to tighten oil filter

    7) Now you can add new oil by pouring it into the same place you took off the oil filler cap.

    (8) After pouring in oil check oil dipstick to make sure you havepoured the proper amount, this is usually done by making sure new oilis at the top of of the crossed section that is at the bottom of thedip stick.

    I finally figured this out. I was putting the o-ring on incorrectly. I actually had two o-rings installed.
    The o-ring should not be visible when it is tightened down. The plastic should be touching the metal housing. The o-ring sits inside the housing, right above the threads, but not at the top. Two pictures attached._388.jpg
