SOURCE: Major oil leak after oil change

Your filter was installed either without the rubber seal, or the seal wasn't lubed before installation and it slipped, causing an improper seal. You will have to drain the oil again, remove the filter, and make sure it is reinstalled with a proper seal.

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: 2007 Jetta 2.5L: how to change oil filter

Usually with draining the oil filters you just screw it off and the oil will drain. It can sometimes be messy but thry to keep your arm out of the way and have the oil pan at the bottom. If some gets on the engine or header pick up some break clean and spray off the remaining oil that made a mess and it should come all clean like you didn't even spill any oil!

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Need to remove oil filter housing - oil leaking

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.

Oil leak on 2007 chevy impala


Only a trusted local auto service shop or dealer can answer this for you because your vehicle would have to be up on a lift to actually see what's leaking in order to properly diagnose and repair. It may be as simple as changing the oil pan gasket or a cracked oil pan that would have to be either replaced or repaired depending on the size of the crack. There is also the remote chance that its actually something else that's leaking. Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 chevy impala that is from a fleet of cruisers so it has the extra oil cooler on it. One of those lines are leaking and i'm wondering if i can bypass them and get a oil filter housin


You probably can do what you want but really it is better to have cold tranny oil rather than another oil filter. Better if you repair/replace the leaking hose as the tranny will reward you for it.

I have oil coming from the oil filter houseing unit?


It is possible that it could be leaking oil from the oil filter adapter (Sometimes called housing) where it mounts to the engine block. Leaks here are pretty rare. More likely, your oil pressure sending unit is leaking oil. It screws into the back side of the oil filter adapter and can sometimes make it look like the adapter is leaking.

I just replaced the gasket of the transmission pan and still have a leak on my 1999 chevy suburban?


The leak is coming from the pan ??
Maybe the leak is traveling to the pan seal area from somewhere else ?
Did you scape off the stuck-on old gaskit on trani and pan ?
Its customary to use gaskit sealer on both sides of the new gaskit..
