Sometimes there can be an extra gasket left over from the old filter that was left on the surface. or it could be too loose. usually you turn it as tight as you can with your hand.

My Bmw High mileage 320i E90 is having oil leaks problems they have changed the oil gaskets pipes from BMW butelp


clean the engine and check where it is coming from. Is it at the front of the rear> do you smell burning oil when you switch off the engine? Clean an area under the engine compartment and see where the oil is dripping from and get back to us. Typical places for leaks are the valve cover gasket, oil filter housing bracket.

Oil leak at filter


If it's at the filter replace the filter. If it's at the mount/engine side replace the seal/gasket. The filter bracket is taken off by removing the filter. The screw that the filter goes on has a nut built on it. remove it to remove the bracket. If it is a seal get a new one and add some silicone. If it is a gasket, clean it off, just use silicone.

Determine if it is the bolts or gasket on a oil filter housing leaking oil from it on a 1993 lincoln mark 8


Surely if you clean the area & start the car,
you will see the leaking area

No reason the oil filter gasket would leak
so remove the adapter & replace any gasket there

1990 ford bronco 2 2.9 liter its leaking oil between the block and the oil filter bracket


The gasket must have let go you'll to remove the oil filter bracket and replace the gasket. Make sure you get all the old gasket off and clean both surfaces with brake parts cleaner or carburator cleaner, you want the parts clean and dry. If you use gasket sealer to put the new one on, use it sparingly, just a film is pleanty.

Do i need to drop the oil pan to ghange the timing cover gasket on a 95 ford mustang v6?


You can pull the motor mounts bolts and jack the motor up alittle, that will give you enough clearance to drop your oil pan. If you try and replace the timing chain cover without dropping the oil pan, you will more than likely wind up with an oil leak.

You should be able to replace the timing cover without removing the oil pan. The gasket set should contain gaskets allowing you to cut the oil pan gasket and put in a new partial gasket in this area. In the corners make sure you use some RTV sealant. If you are careful, it can be done. Like Bob A says you can end up with a oil leak without dropping the pan (unless you clean up the area and properly apply the RTV and gasket). If you have time to drop the oil pan, then I would do that.

Oil cooler seal


There are two items that can be leaking oil there. There is a gasket between the oiler cooler flange (the item attached to the engine), and the rubber gasket/seal that goes between the cooler and the flange. (the latter is the one that leaks most often as most oil change shops over tighten the oil filter).
I just replaced the gasket between the cooler and flange recently. I chose to do it quick and dirty: 1. remove oil filter 2. remove oil filter nipple (the portion you screw the filter onto) 2a. you'll need a deep well socket to get the bolt that holds the cooler tight (I believe 27mm)
2b. pull down the cooler, Grab the nipple with a pair of pliers between the flange and cooler and loosen/remove
3. remove old gasket/seal and clean surface 4. put new seal/gasket in place 5. re-seat the nipple back in. use the pliers method, just make sure you don't scar the threads where you NEED them( you don't need all of them). 6. put some gasket sealer (oil friendly) on the gasket and make sure its in place 7. tighten oil cooler onto flange with large nut and socket 8. replace oil filter and add oil as needed.
it is a tight working area, expect some scrapped knuckles, but it isn't too difficult.
good luck
