Did you check and see if the filter still has the rubber grommet by the threads? Look at your old filter to make sure they are the same. Did you get it on cross threaded? . Might just be a bad filter, seen it happen only once. . Did you leave the old rubber grommet on the threaded shaft? Just shooting some guesses at you. Good luck

How to change gasket on oil cooler 2001 Kia Sportage?

An "O" ring can be purchased at your local auto parts along with your oil filter. Your oil filter screws on top of your oil cooler. Mine leaked as well. A new "O" ring and filter screwed on tightly solved my problem.

When I change oil ,oil filter is like oil inside.

ensure that the filter you are using are good quality with anti bleed down valve in them. If the filter is a side screw on or a screw down then if the filter is wrong , the oil will drain back. If the filter is right one then I would be concerned as the filter is right after the oil pump and be full of oil. take a used filter that looks clean and using a hacksaw or other suitable tool cut the tin casing off and see if there is oil inside in the paper element. and go from there.

Can a screw on type oil filter replace factory element type?

I would not change anything on your 2009 vehicle until it is out of warranty. If something goes wrong the dealer could deny warranty coverage. I know of no one making a converion kit to a spin on filter. Many auto makers are going to cartridge style oil filters that cost more. Most auto parts store carry you filter.

Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

Over heating and oil mixing

yes sounds good to me also check the oil cooler which is what the oil filter screws onto with water pipes connected as well,as normally the auto connection into the radiator doesnt give problems when its copper but a lot of new cars use plastic and they are absolutly useless.this oil cooler on top of the oil filter is often damaged by heavy handed mechanics hammering a screwdriver into the oil filter to remove it and make a hole into the oil cooler .

Instructional guide oil change

Check your owners manual for the following info: Engine oil requirements, which would be what engine oil weight is right for your car. It will be #'s such as 5W 30. Use the weight recommended by chevy. The manual will also tell u how much u need. Go to an auto parts store, where u will need to purchase the following: 1. engine oil (they should be able to look up the weight requirement for your car, 2. oil filter, get a quality filter. An easy way to determine that is the weight of the filter. A good filter has a valve in it to prevent oil from draining out when the engine is off. This way when u start the car, u have oil pressure right away. You can also ask for advice on what they feel is a good filter.3. Filter wrench, to remove the oil filter. You can determine the correct size by seeing if it fits on the new filter. Ok, take it all home and: the car should be at operating temperature, either jack up the car or buy a set of ramps to drive it up on so u can get under the car. Make sure the car is supported on safety stands, never go under a car w/ just a jack holding it up. Block the rear wheels front and back so the car can't roll, put the emergency brake on, leave it in gear if it's a standard trans, in park for auto trans. Go under the car to remove the oil pan drain bolt. Be careful as surfaces and oil will be hot. Have a good size plastic pan, or something similar (u can also buy a oil drain container especially made for this) under the car. Remove the drain plug, letting the oil drain for 15 minutes or so, to let it drain completely. The reason u drain it w/ engine hot is to drain the oil quickly and completely, cold oil would take a long time to drain. Remove the oil filter w/ your wrench. I assume your filter is accessed from under the car. A few (not many) allow u to remove the filter from above in the engine compartment. With a clean rag, wipe off the area where the oil filter screws on. Make sure the old gasket isn't stuck on (rare, but it does happen). Also clean the area around the drain bolt. Replace the drain bolt, do not use brute force to tighten it, you want it on good and snug, not loose or so tight you ruin the threads. Now coat the gasket on the new oil filter w/ new clean engine oil, screw on hand tight. Go by the oil filter instructions on the box, usually u tighten til it just makes contact w/ the engine, then tighten one half to one full turn more.
Add the required amount of oil, start up and let it run for a few minutes, check for any leaks. Check your level several times a month so u know how often to add oil. U shouldn't wait 'til its down a quart to add oil, if its down half a quart, top it off. Your engine will reward u with a long life w/ this care (change every 3k miles). Don't overfill ever, as too much oil is bad for the engine, it causes the oil to foam, and u loose your lubrication. Many garages, town and city recycling centers, oil change shops will accept used oil to recycle. Whoa! seems a lot more complicated than it really is! Let me know if u have any questions. countrycurt0
