Are you sure the old seal was removed when you pulled the previous filter off? This is more likely then coincidence that relief valves not release any excess pressure.

SOURCE: Oil Leak

Take the car to a car wash and power wash the engine. Do this ONLY with a cold engine. And be prepared to have problems with it starting as water get's into the electrical components. Take some WD-40 with you to spray inside distributor caps, on spark wiring, etc. to get the engine running again.

Then check the engine weekly to see where the oil is coming from.

SOURCE: 1992 chevy siverado pickup 350 engine,I have a oil

Does this truck have an oil cooler? These will be noticable oil return lines that are connected to the housing above the filter. It could be a return line or the housing needs a new gasket.

SOURCE: water/oil mixing in 22r engine

yes it can mix, also check the timing cover for rubs from the timing chain. this is the common problem with 22r. many mechanics will tell you its the block but they are just trying to make money.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


    Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

    Oil leak from rocca cover or cam seal


    I don't understand what a rocca cover is, but your two most common oil leak locations are the front cam seal behind the timing belt pulley and the rear cam journal plug in the valve cover.
    For a leak at the front, next time you replace your timing belt, unbolt the pulley, extract the old seal with a sharp hook, and press in a new seal. Be sure that the new seal is pressed in straight, and grease the lips before you press it in. Often, the front crankshaft seal fails about the same time, so replace that one as well while you have the timing belt off.
    For a leak at the rear, reach back there behind the valve cover with solvent on a rag and clean it up nice and dry, then coat the edges of the rubber plug liberally with silicone seal. Allow to dry. Replace the rubber plug next time you have the valve cover off, but use some silicone seal to secure the new one so it stays in place and won't start leaking.
    These cars are prone to valve cover gasket leaks, so expect to replace the valve cover gasket every few years. This is a particular problem if you use synthetic oil.
    Any time you have problems with oil leaks, suspect that the crankcase is pressurizing due to a plugged ventilation system. Check the flame arrestor to make sure it is clean and clear. The flame arrestor is between the legs of the intake manifold, generally in a hard-to-get-at location. Also, blow down the hose below the flame arrestor to make sure that the oil mist separator box on the side of the engine block has not plugged up with sludge.

    I havea daewoo nubira and we replaced the valve cover gasket yesterday , did an oik change and now the engine is smoking white smoke. Try to check to hoses, could not see a leak. Where is the cylinder...


    Hello and welcome to FixYa!

    The cylinder head is located on the center of the engine. Yes it can be a worn out head gasket or piston rings. If the piston rings are worn out the oil is burnt that's why it emits white smoke. You will need to replace the head gasket and piston rings.

    Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

    My kia optima leaks engine oil around the filter


    remove the filter and be sure the is a rubber gasket attached, if so rub a bit of oil on it before replacing, being certain that interior threads are clean and not stripped ( if so replace filter) only turning hand tight, no not overly tighten.

    Oil filter leaking i did got new oil filter but still leaking


    Hi

    Are you sure its the oil filter? it could be the oil filter gasket, some models/ not all vw have a second gasket seperate from the oil filter itsself, the other thing is the oil could be leaking from the top of the engine but then dripping off the filter making you think that, that is the cause.

    Is the oil filter to the rear of the engine or up front? what model, year and engine size?
    Regards

    Oil leaking into sparkplug holes on rubber boots


    Buy a new valve cover gasket set (and a small tube of silicon high temp sealer). It comes with new rubber seals for each sparkplug hole, and the cover perimeter.Use a little silicon glue on the gaskets to hold them in place. Take your time,do the work with a cold engine in a shaded area. Clean all the oil off the wires and make sure all the old gasket rubber is cleaned off.And check to make sure before you put the cover back on that no old gasket pieces are in the engine.

    Bad valve cover gasket, misfire and tapping lifter.


    if your asking what to do about it you will have to remove it and fit a new gasket this can be relatively easy if your good with engines if your not this can be extremely hard id take it to mechanic to fix but the costs can be in the thousands for a gasket replacemeant because of the amount of work and time it takes to strip the engine to get to the gasket
