Major oil leak near oil filter

I thought it was just a loose oil filter but the leak is pouring from the filter mount. The filter isn't loose. The gasket on the filter looks good.

    I also have the same problem. Oil filter is on securely yet the oil is leaking from behind the housing. I can't quite see where it's leaking but I seems like it's coming from the top and then leaking down. It's about 2 inches from the filter.

    Make sure the gasket from the previous filter isn't still on. I've seen them stick to the surface occasionally. Also make sure you didn't cross thread the filter. And of course, make sure you have the correct filter.

How to change the gasket on the oil filter adapter


Easy fix I just did. (replacing the oil filter adapter gasket which is a common leak). Remove the air cleaner tube and housing. Release the tension on the belt. Remove the two front bolts on the air compressor. They are nuts but the stud will come out too which is fine. Under the car loosen the third air compressor bolt. This will give you enough room to loosen the hidden bolt on the oil filter adapter. It only needs to be loosened as the adapter is slotted there. Remove the other two bolts on the oil filter adapter and remove. Replace the gasket and install.

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.

Oil is leaking from where the oil filter is screwed into... is this the oil pump? is it difficult to replace?


Oil pump?

Your filter is leaking, check it out.

Can only be the adapter or the filter gasket

1997 nissan pickup 2 whl drive 2.4l oil is pouring from oil pressure sensor or oil filter when running. can not tell the exact location of leak but looks more like the sensor than the filter.


unscrew the sensor and replace. its a $10 part. The other problem could be a loose oil filter or an oil filter with two gaskets, this happens when an old gasket does not come off with the filter.

Oil leak between oil filter mount and the block


The oil filter may have been over torqued and the rubber gasket has jumped it's seat on the oil filter. Spray down the oil filter mount and engine and look to see where the oil is seeping through the filter when the engine is running. Best thing to do is replace the oil filter. Good luck and hope this helps.
