SOURCE: oil filter adapter lines from block adapter to remote oil filter

The lines can be disconnected from both ends and the bracket removed but to remove the lines from the front (they cannot be removed to the rear) loosen and remove the drivers side engine mount bolt. Use a block of wood between a floor jack and the cast aluminum oil pan and jack the engine assy. up slightly (just enough to "snake" the oil filter adapter lines by the drivers side engine mount. Leave engine jacked up slightly while you "snake" the new lines into position and install the end at the engine oil filter adapter. You can then lower the engine reinstall engine mount bolt and finish the install of the lines by installing the oil filter end of the adapter lines and attach the bracket (that comes with the GM lines) to the block.

How do i fix the oil leak at the round block on the side of the engine where a normal oil filter would attach. seems to be where the remote filter lines run down and attach. leaking from where it meets the...


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.

What causes the oil filter housing to leak - it is above the filter - we replaced the filter but this is on seam about 1/2 inch above the top of the filter


If there is a spacer between the oil filter and the engine block then you would could have a bad seal on it. If its similar to a Honda there will be to hoses going to the spacer. This spacer is called the oil cooler adapter. If this is it. Take oil filter off and the remove the oil cooler nut if there is enough room you won't need to disconnect cooling lines. Pry the Adapter away from the block with screw driver. remove old seal clean surface with clean rag install new seal. Wipe a little oil around the seal just like you would the oil filter. 'Tighten snug, but don't over tighten. Not sure the correct torque for this. Hope this helps you. This similar problem occurred on my 1995 Honda Odyssey.

Need to replace remote oil filter lines that are starting to leak


You're going to need an engine lift and wheel ramps or jack and jack stands. Remove the left motor mount through bolt and block up with wooden block. Take the splash shield off the bottom of the motor. You know the panel that the oil filter is behind. Do the oil cooler lines screw into the radiator or are they retained by quick disconnects i forget? You'll need a one long extension and a swivel to get the bolt at the engine boss. The rest of the lines are pretty self explanatory.

How do you replace the fuel pump in a 91 chrysler lebaron?


This is if you have a carbuerator:

Identification of the mechanical fuel pump inlet and outlet tubes


  1. Make sure the negative battery cable is disconnected. Have a metal cup handy to collect any fuel that may spill.
  2. Place a drain pan under the oil filter, then remove the filter with a strap wrench or equivalent.
  3. Disconnect the fuel and vapor lines, catching fuel that spills. Dispose of any spilled fuel safely.
  4. Plug the fuel lines to prevent leaks.
  5. Remove the attaching bolts and remove the fuel pump.
The fuel pump is NOT repairable. It must be replaced as a complete unit. Always use a new gasket when installing the pump and make certain that the gasket surfaces are clean.
To install:
  1. Clean the fuel pump and engine block gasket surfaces of all old gasket material or dirt.
  2. Position a new fuel pump gasket against the engine block, then situate the pump in position over the gasket with bolt holes lined up squarely. Install the retaining bolts and tighten them to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
  3. Connect the fuel lines to the pump (always start fuel line connections by hand-before using a wrench to tighten) and tighten the fittings to 175 inch lbs. (20 Nm).
  4. Clean the block surface, check the gasket, then install the oil filter, tightening it by hand only. If the gasket is damaged, replace the filter. Refer to Section 1 for the proper service procedures regarding oil filters.
  5. Start the engine and check for leaks. Check the crankcase oil level and refill as necessary.

Oil cooler lines leaking. Motor losing all the oil within 10 minutes.


Inspect where the oil is leaking from the oil cooler line, it's common for the oil to leak from the remote oil cooler line adapter bolt on the engine block. You can remove the two bolts one at a time and place a oil drain plug washer with some RTV silicon to ensure that it will not leak.

The other common place for the oil line to leak is from where the rubber lines mate to the aluminum line from the remote oil filter line adapter. This is also a simple fix but you're going to need a drumlin tool cut off the old compression clamp that was press fit. Cut off the old compression fitting ring, use cation that you only cut off the ring and replace it with a new compression clamp. Make sure you use compression clamps and not a hose clamp.

This is the best way to fix the oil leak from the adapter line to the rubber hose line, to replace the whole line with the new adapter is expensive and i believe your have to disconnect the engine mount to raise the engine to clear enough room to install the new line along the frame.

Good luck and don't use any engine oil stop leak, it will damage your oil pressure relieve valve and that's one extra thing you don't need to replace.
