Question about Cars & Trucks
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

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.

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.

SOURCE: oil leak
a bolt goesthrough the centerof that housing that if memory serves me right is a t55 or t60 torx. it is a tight fit to get to and the bolt is hard to turn because it also has an oring on it

yes it is safe to take it off. just put some sealant on it or replace the gasket and put it back . this happened to me on 1999 clk 430 . take the belt off to make it easy on your self
