Oil leak by the oil filter 94CAMRY


It is a V6? If so this is one of the very common oil leaks on Camry engines of that model, the others being the distributor shaft o-ring seal and on a V6, the rear bank cam cover gasket.

The oil filter spins onto an adapter which itself is bolted to the block. In time the o-ring seal to the block goes hard and leaks. It can be easily replaced.

It seems that you have a bad oil filter adapter seal. You can usually pick one up at your local parts store, if not, they may have to order it. To change the seal you must first remove the lines close to block and the you shoul be able to unscrew the oil cooler adapter from the block, may require an allen wrench to loosen. Then you should replace the seal or gasket inbetween the block and the cooler adapter and then reinstall the adapter, reconnect the lines. Be sure to catch the oil in a clean container so you can reuse it to pour back into the block, check the oil level and if at a safe range start the vehicle and check for leaks. If no leaks you should be ready to drive at will.

Leaking where filter unit connects to block.


Oil filter adapter leaking ?, or bad gasket on oil filter, you can try tightening it, remove the oil filter and tighten the nut, i have never had any luck stopping the leak on either the adapter or filter with out changing the gasket/o ring, sorry with the information you supplied I can only guess.
Have a good day.

I have oil coming from the oil filter houseing unit?


It is possible that it could be leaking oil from the oil filter adapter (Sometimes called housing) where it mounts to the engine block. Leaks here are pretty rare. More likely, your oil pressure sending unit is leaking oil. It screws into the back side of the oil filter adapter and can sometimes make it look like the adapter is leaking.

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

There is oil leakin from my car and the oil is running on the exaust pipe


Was an oil change done recently?

Check the oil filter adapter lto the engine block. its common for those to go bad after an oil change. you will have to get under the car to see. but when they go bad it leaks alot.

If thats not it i would say spray it down with degreeser and rinse with garden hose and watch closely when it dries for oil leak.

It's not easy to get at. There is a gasket in there. I've done a few of these. It's called an oil filter adapter gasket.

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.
