Probably the housing for the filter? Have you tried tightening the bolts on the housing?

Oil change in a 1986 chevy nova


Very easy on this car. You don't even need to put the car up if you're not a big person. Remove the oil fill cap on the valve cover the warm and off engine. Unbolt the oil pan drain bolt at the bottom (don't lose the gasket) and let the oil drain out. Clean off bolt hole face and put the gasket and bolt back on. Bolt does not need much torque. Unscrew the oil filter on the front of the engine (might need filter wrench). Clean off filter face and make sure old gasket is removed (usually comes off with the filter). Put on new filter. Do not overtighten

While underneath, look around for leaks, damage to CV joint boots, cracks in hoses, etc.

Fill with about 3.5 qt 10-30W oil. Put oil fill cap back on. Run engine for about 30 sec. Shut off and check for leaks. Check oil level on dipstick after a couple minutes of engine running and add oil if needed.

Mark date and odometer in your log book. Recycle used oil.

There is a leak coming from above the oil filter ......2000 chevy 5.3 truck . do you know what this part is called and how do i fix it?


You're probably talking about a leak from the oil filter housing. If it is leaking you'll need to replace it. Otherwise - check your oil filter and where it mates on the housing and make sure you have a good seal with no extra gasket material stuck in the way.

2005 chevy malibu leaking oil from engine, we can see where its comming from but not sure what the part is called. Its above the oil pan. Seems to be a steady leak when engine has been running for a little...


its called an oil filter housing adapter gasket, very common problem for it to leak it gets disturbed from the torque applied every time you change the oil filter just not a well thought design it will appear that your oil filter is leaking however it is the 10 dollar gasket on the adapter that gave in

Looks like the oil is leaking out right above the


oil filter screws onto an adapter housing which also has the pressure sending unit on it (above oil filter). This adapter housing bolts to the block with 3 bolts. if oil appears to be leaking from where the adapter housing meets the block (especially at the rear side of engine near bottom), then you need to replace the siamese o-rings between the adapter housing and the block ($12 part at dealer). remove lowest 12mm bolt and loosen top 2 12 mm bolts(top 2 bolts won't come out unless you drop the engine down, but loosening 1 inch is all you need), replace o-rings and retighten bolts. be careful not to get dirt/grit between block and adapter. just finished doing this to son's 95 2.7 v6 which was leaving an 8" puddle of oil after idling for only 1 minute-worked perfect

Instructions on performing an oil chane on a 1993 crown victoria


Lift the front of the car and support it on jack stands. Open the hood. Run the engine for a max of 5 mins. The goal is to warm the oil without making it (or anything you may touch) too hot (avoiding burns). remove the oil filler cap on the valve cover.

Put a pan below the oil filter (drivers side on the 4.6l v-8 engine). Unscrew the oil filter with a suitable oil filter wrench. Counterclockwise rotation will remove it. allow the oil in this area to drain fully.

Move the pan under the engine's oil pan. At it's lowest point there will be an angled bolt. Carefully loosen the bolt (counterclockwise rotation). Expect a healthy stream of oil to flow out quickly. Dont drop the bolt, it has a magnet on the end that will show if you have and metal debris in the engine oil. A few little flakes are nornal, chunks are not and indicates some engine problems.

When the oil has drained out, replace the bolt being careful not to overtighten (it's easy to strip the threads then you will have bigger problems). The washer on the bolt will seal from leaks so no need to overtorque it.

Next fill the filter with fresh oil and rub a slight amount on the rubber gasket seal at the perimeter of the filter. Install the oil filter until the gasket seal touches the milled face of the engine block. Turn 1/4 to 1/2 turn further to seal correctly.

Fill with the required amount of oil. Install the oil filler cap, visually inspect for any oil leaks. If none, start the engine and make sure the oil pressure dash light goes out (or the needle indicates pressure) within 5 seconds. If not, turn off engine quickly. If oil pressure is good, let it run for 1-2 mins. Turn it off, check under the car, and around the fliter for any fresh leaks. With the engine off, check the oil level on the dipstick with the car on level ground. If you need a little more oil to keep the level in the marked area on the dipstick, add some. DO NOT overfill the engine. Engine damage will occur. If you've put too much oil in, remove the drain bolt (as explained above).
Drop your used oil off at a collection depot (dont pour it down the drain, it's totally toxic to organic life).

You're done.
