SOURCE: Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter

If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.

SOURCE: oil leak onto garage floor

Did you just get your oil changed? If yes, then it may be from some spilling during change. If not, wipe off the oil drip and keep an eye on the leaking area to try to determine where it's coming from.

Why is my oil filter leaking onto my starter?


Check the seal on the oil filter. If the seal is torn or missing it will leak and the oil leak will cause loud noises when it's in gear.

My 1998 trailblazer has started leaking oil from filter area. what do I need to address first. engine was recently replaced.


Assume this is a 4.3-first, make sure the filter is on tight (it happens)-not knowing how bad the leak is, I would check to see if the oil pressure sender unit is there (that is usually close to where they locate them, and they do leak). If it seems to be coming from where the filter is spun onto the block, remove the filter and make sure the old gasket from the last filter did not get stuck onto the block, then the new filter got installed over top of it (it happens too). If these do not pan out, the oil filter adapter (housing that holds the oil filter) may need to be removed and the gasket replaced.

Need to remove oil filter housing - oil leaking out. How do you remove it? Bolt location, etc. The car just dumped almost all it's oil in the driveway while it was idling. The leak appears to be around the...


This is not an easy repair in your driveway, but can be done. 1st thing, have you checked to see if the oil filter is the issue or is it the drain plug? If its the oil filter housing gasket, you will need to remove the filter. The housing is held in place by the threaded bolt assy that the filter screws onto. You will need to remove that bolt, remove the coolant hoses. Clean the engine block surfaces, for the new gasket to mate to, clean the cooling housing surfaces, install the bolt through the housing, and install the gasket onto it. Then install the bolt/housing into the block and tighten the bolt. Install the coolant hoses, oil filter. Fill the cooling system with the coolant that you removed. Fill the engine with oil, start and check for leaks.

Daughters 2000 sportage has a bad oil leak in the filter area but it isnt the filter it looks like it is coming from the piece the filter screws onto but the filter is sealing correctly.


First, make sure there isn't an old filter "o" ring stuck to the filter adapter. Sometimes when removing the old filter, the "o" ring stays, and this will leak oil, after installing the new one, as you will have two "o" rings together.
If this is OK, then inspect the adapter for cracks, or bad threads. The adapter is what your filter threads onto, and this is replacable.

Oil leaking from the gasket on the metal piece under oil fltr


Make sure that the oil filter is tight. Usually they only leak if dirt was in the gasket when the filter was installed or the filter wasn't tightened enough.

Oil Leak from Spindle


The stud that the oil filter screws onto holds the filter housing to the engine and there is an O ring between the housing and engine that leaks and is common on honda's. Removing the oil filter and then the stud will release the housing and can replace O ring which cost about six dollars at dealer.

Constant oil leak from motor oil filter


When the filter is changed, are you wiping the filter's seal with oil first? You must do this to help it seal against the filter housing. Just dip a finger into the new oil and smear it onto the seal. Also, before installing the seal, spray brake cleaner or degreaser onto a paper towel or rag and scrub the area where the filter seal mates to the engine - you may have grime on there that is preventing you from getting a good seal.
