If it's leaking from the oil filter spacer.( the 2 inch metal ring that attaches to your block, and has two rubber hoses coming out of it, and your oil filter attaches to) There is an o-ring between the spacer and the block. Take off your oil filter, remove the oil filter stud with 1 3/16" socket( or metric equivalent) and the spacer will come off. I found all the auto parts stores around me said that the o-ring was a dealer item. I bought a FRAM PH3387A oil filter and removed the o-ring on that. It fit perfectly, snug down your oil filter stud to specs, then install your oil filter. Double check that the oil filter is not double gasketed, and your are fixed!

    1995 Honda Odyssey - Leak between the engine block and the oil cooler adapter. The seal needed replaced. Chubbydave is right probably with the fram oil filter o-ring, but I went to the Local Honda parts Dealer and got the right seal cost was with tax $3.15. The metric socket size is 30mm and you don't need a deep well. It took about 30minutes to install. Pretty Good for a car with 200351 miles.

Check for a double oil filter gasket or a missing oil filter gasket. If it's still leaking after new filter with proper gasket seat on oil filter look higher on the engine.

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: rather severe oil leak from the area of the oil filter

I own a '99 Isuzu Oasis, which of course is really and '98 Odyssey with Isuzu nameplate. 214,000 miles, Cranked it up yesterday morning after 20 to 30 degree temps that night....took middle schooler to class approx 3-4 miles from home and approx 1/4 mile from home- noted severe burning oil smell in cabin and smoke from under hood.. Got it home and observed 3-4 quarts of leaked oil on the ground where I had been sitting just 15 mins before. Thought for sure I had ruined the engine after seeing all the oil in the gravel. Could not believe the leak was so severe, considering this car still runs like a beauty and has shown no leaking or other symptoms in the days before this occurred. Got home later that day and checked filter thinking maybe it had loosened. It had not. Refilled engine with oil and noted oil not leaking or dripping but pouring through area at engine block and oil cooler juncture at filter area. Found this forum and a few others on line and followed the plan , AutoZone: loan-a-tool 30mm 1/2" drive socket is all you need to do the job, except of course the oil cooler seal/O-ring which I got at Honda for 3 bucks. Took me all of 45 mins...no need to dettach hoses and leak antifreeze, just unscrew the 30mm nut and remove the old gasket/seal. Be sure to remove all the pieces, Mine was hard and brittle and broken in 3 pieces. What once was rubbery/pliable would now snap like a pretzel due to age/wear. When I buy my next one of these, and I will, because it is the best vehicle I have ever owned ( and I have owned several Hondas and Toyotas) I will preventative replace this seal at approx 150,000 miles.... this was close to being catastrophic failure- Thanks to this forum and others for the advice-plan to put another 100,000 miles on this baby!

SOURCE: looks like the oil is leaking out right above the

oil filter screws onto an adapter housing which also has the pressure sending unit on it (above oil filter). This adapter housing bolts to the block with 3 bolts. if oil appears to be leaking from where the adapter housing meets the block (especially at the rear side of engine near bottom), then you need to replace the siamese o-rings between the adapter housing and the block ($12 part at dealer). remove lowest 12mm bolt and loosen top 2 12 mm bolts(top 2 bolts won't come out unless you drop the engine down, but loosening 1 inch is all you need), replace o-rings and retighten bolts. be careful not to get dirt/grit between block and adapter. just finished doing this to son's 95 2.7 v6 which was leaving an 8" puddle of oil after idling for only 1 minute-worked perfect

Oil leak in front in front behind bumber mitsubishi gt 2004. it seems its leaking from an orange it looks like a coffee cup in size that's screwd on.. Was never leaking until yesterday , after i put oil...


When changing the oil it is important to wet the sealing o-ring with oil before screwing it on. Tighten the filter 3/4 turns after the seal touches the engine. Most oil filters have clear installation instructions on the box or actual filter. Look carefully , if your oil filter is leaking, Take off the leaking filter and replace it with a new one. Top up the engine oil as needed.

Where is the commen oil leak on a 97 ford taurus


Maybe, maybe not, It's most likely a bad rear seal or worn main bearings but check the oil filter just to be safe. Sometimes things go wrong when changing the oil filter that can cause similar symptoms.
1) old gasket left behind.
2) cross threaded filter.
3) loose filter.
4) damage gasket or defective new filter.

1998 olds Aurora i have an oil leak, is it common


There are common places, you'll just have to look around to see where the leak is:
Around the oil filter and the housing
Around the oil pan and the pan gasket
The oil seal behind the damper pulley
Valve cover gaskets
These are the most common places, leaks can spring up anywhere.

OIL LEAK COMING CLOSE TO THE OIL FILTER


if you had recently done or had an oil change done sometimes the gasket from the old oil filter sticks to the block. when you install the new oil filter it ends up with 2 gaskets and leaks around the base where filter meets oil cooler. another posability is the oil pressure sending unit is mounted just above the filter.

2001triton v10 oil leak


i believe you are looking at the oil cooler, replacing the gasket is not that difficult, drain the radiator, remove the oil filter and it should be 4 bolts and the whole assembly comes off, keep in mind though its more common for the oil filter itself to be leaking rather than the oil cooler gasket.
