Oil Leak from Spindle

I noticed an oil leak and decided to have a look at it. The oil is leaking from the "spindle" that the oil filter screws onto. I have no idea how to fix it or if you even can. Could you tell me how to or what it takes?

    My 1993 accord scraped and hit bottom on some compact snow and ice and since then has a pretty good oil leak. I saw that it was coming from the "housing" in between the oil filter and the block. Is the "housing" available at the dealer and, if so, how much?

    I have the same problem. I purchased the "O-Ring" from the dealer but I don't know how to make the repair. What tools are needed to remove the "Spindle", after removing the filter, so that the "O-Ring" can be replaced? Is it a difficult job? About how long does it take to do it? Thanks

The stud that the oil filter screws onto holds the filter housing to the engine and there is an O ring between the housing and engine that leaks and is common on honda's. Removing the oil filter and then the stud will release the housing and can replace O ring which cost about six dollars at dealer.

    Your 1993 Honda housing is available at dealer don't know how much but have never had to replace one,usually it is the seal only so replace the seal first and you can always reuse it if housing needs replaced.

Why is my oil filter leaking onto my starter?

Check the seal on the oil filter. If the seal is torn or missing it will leak and the oil leak will cause loud noises when it's in gear.

Can the Oil Pressure Switch on a Kia Sorrento cause an oil leak?

Do you mean filler cap or the oil filter? An improperly seated O-ring on an oil filter is a common source of oil leaks, but these leaks are usually major and noticeable as soon as the engine is started. An oil pressure switch can also be a source of leaks, but a much slower leak. A leak from an oil filler cap would be slower still.

What is the part call that the oil filer screws on called. it seems to be leaking from there

Check that the oil filter if firmly screwed onto the engine. If not then drain the oil, undo the oil filter. Wipe the surface of the oil filter connector on the engine so its clean. Get a new oil filter and smear a small amount of oil on the rubber seal. Screw the filter into place making sure it is a tight seal. Re-fill the engine with the right amount of oil. You should be good to go. Check that the oil leak is coming from the filter before you start as it could be something more serious eleswhere like the head.

Leaking oil from cylinder under the hood? The oil is spewing out of the cylinder looking can and running down onto everything, I notice that it appears that a screw is loose on the cainister.

I belive what you are describing is the can that holds your oil filter. Have you tried to tighten up that screw that appeaers loose? You may also need to replace a washer or sealing ring under it in order to stop the leak. They normally used either a copper washer or o'ring for a seal. You will just have to look and see if you can tell.

Oil leaking from the gasket on the metal piece under oil fltr

Make sure that the oil filter is tight. Usually they only leak if dirt was in the gasket when the filter was installed or the filter wasn't tightened enough.

My 95 camaro v-6 3.8l has an oil leak. It is spraying oil onto the inside of the hood and engine compartment. I can't visually see where it is coming from. Any ideas???????

A "spray" is not a leak.. That sounds more a like an Oil Sending Unit .. Peep near the oil filter and look for a screw-in thingy with wires ( or wire ) goin to it.. Its unther the car near the front of the engine withing 6 inches of the oil filter
