SOURCE: Oil Leak

sounds like the oil filter housing gasket is leaking. clean the area up real good with some brake clean and then run vehicle for 15 to 30 min and see if u can see whare its coming from. it may also be coming from valve cover gasket.

SOURCE: oil leak from cover around/above the oil filter

it is possible. although inferior oil filters have been known to do the same thing. for that matter inferior mechanics too. run and see if you see drips from the casing of the filter. it IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO HAVE WHAT THEY CALL "DOUBLE GASKET". SO GO GET A NISSAN OIL FILTER, PULL OFF THE OLD ONE AND CHECK FOR THE PRESSENCE OF 2 GASKETS OR O RINGS.

SOURCE: HAVE A OIL LEAK COMING FROM ABOVE THE OIL FILTER.

Has the oil filter just been replaced? Sometimes the old gasket sticks to the mounting area, causing leakage if the new filter is installed on top of it. It is also possible the gasket was for some reason missing on a new filter. Let me know if this is not the cause, I'll try to help further.

SOURCE: oil leak near oil filter, just above the oil

Probably the oil cooler seal. This large o-ring is located between the oil cooler and the block adapter. After removing the oil filter, you will see a single nut on the threaded portion of the pipe that the filter screws onto. Removing this nut will allow you to remove the oil cooler. You may want to disconnect the coolant lines from the oil cooler (makes the job a little easier), but be sure to plug the lines as you remove them so you don't loose coolant. The o-ring will be on the top side of the oil cooler. A new o-ring will cost you $3 to $9, depending on where you get it. For a VW repair . . . this one is cheap and pretty easy to do. The parts diagram below may help. The seal is part #19.

SOURCE: Oil leaks pour from my Oil cooler right above oil

The oil is most likely leaking from the oil cooler seal. The oil cooler is the square aluminum piece that the oil filter screws onto. To replace the seal, remove the filter, remove both coolant hoses that attach to the cooler, remove the nut that secures the cooler to the block and slide the cooler off the tube. Replace the rubber o-ring seal which is available at the VW dealer. It's inexpensive. Replace everything in reverse order. Good luck

If it is leaking at the oil filter the previous rubber gasket may have stuck to the block. When the new oil filter was installed then the gasket was doubled and will leak.

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.

Oil leaking from some sort of plug above the oil filter


If the leak is coming directly from above the oil filter it is more than likely the oil pressure switch is leaking. The seal around the Oil pressure switch could have gone bad and now it is leaking.

The oil pressure switch is located right above the the oil filter and above the cooling system cross pipe.
