Huyndai Trajet - how to change oil filter

I know where the filter housing (filter itself is inside as a separate part) is and I've let the oil leak out of engine via under engine service opening. But, how should the oil filter be removed exactly? There is a six corner bolt on side of filter housing for leaking oil out from filter. And another on top of filter housing. I've opened them both and tried to turn the housing - no results. Is it ment to be turned or what? Thanks for kind help

SOURCE: Oil leak from top side of oil filter

Make sure you oil the rubber seal on the oil filter and tighten the oil filter 3/4 of a turn more after the seal is flush with the bracket.

SOURCE: oil leak on right side under top engine cover

your valve cover gasket may have blown. This can happen if you overfill above the required dipstick level. take off the valve cover and check the gasket. Better to be under the level than over. The oil preassure will try to blow from where ever there is a weak gasket.

Oil leak from oil filter housing

Your oil filter is too tight,causing the rubber gasket to tork and not seal,I've done it on my 85 nissan 720.Everytime I do a oil change,I have to make sure I don't over tighten filter.Loosen a little bit,wipe all oil up so you will know if it's fixed.You may have to replace filter if gasket is messed up from overtightening.

Check the Mass Air Flow Sensor, you can get a can of cleaner specific for cleaning them for a couple bucks at the parts store. I'd just get 1 and clean the sensor see if that works. The MAF sensor is either in the throttle body itself (bolted on from the outside or in the air line between the filter and throttle body. That could be the whole problem right there. Good luck.

Oil leak from oil filter housing

  1. First check and make sure the filter is not lose.
  2. You might want to pull the oil filter and check to see if the gasket has spit or if more than one was accidentally put on during the last oil change,
  3. Should that check out there then, with the oil filter off, take and try to rotate the housing itself a bit. Just see if there is some movement. If there is then there is a nut that you can tighten up. It the nut will be on the same bolt shaft that the oil filter screws onto. Sometimes when taking off a really stuck filter the housing can come loose.
  4. There are also two hoses attached to the oil filter housing. Make sure they have not ruptured or that the clap has not failed.

A ton of pressure goes through the oil filter housing. You don't want to drive the vehicle until this is fixed because all your oil can leak out rather quick and seize your engine. Regards, Tony

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

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.

Oil leak from oil filter

There is an "O" ring between the Oil filter housing and the adapter that will leak as well. Remove the oil filter and check inside of the housing for a large nut. Remove the nut and separate the adapter from the housing. Check the "o" ring between them and replace with new "o" ring. That's where mine is leaking and I've read a couple of others that had the same problem. The old ring started out "round" and has, over time, become flat. The new ring should start out with a flatter cross section that will seal better. Good luck! (Easy Fix, but finding the "o" ring may be a challenge. Check for the ring at the Honda Dealer as the Passport is the same basic vehicle.) Do it during the next oil change........
