A bolt goesthrough the centerof that housing that if memory serves me right is a t55 or t60 torx. it is a tight fit to get to and the bolt is hard to turn because it also has an oring on it

How do I remove the oil filter housing


Where the filter screws on. Look in the hole. It takes an allen wrench to get that part off to release the housing.

How do you change oil filter


The oil filter is a can shaped object that is screwed into the side of the engine.
You need an oil filter removal tool that wraps a strap around the oil filter so you can unscrew the oil filter in an anti-clockwise direction. When the oil filter is loosened you will get some oil spillage.
When you replace the oil filter, apply a little fresh oil on the rubber o-ring seal before you screw the oil filter back onto the engine. Do not over tighten the oil filter as you can damage the o-ring seal and cause the oil to leak out of the engine when the engine is running.
After installing the new oil filter I suggest you start the engine and let it run until the engine warms up, then check the oil filter to see if there is any oil leaks from the oil filter (between the engine and the oil filter). If it leaks and you have not tighened the oil filter enough then screw the filter a little tighter/

Oil is leaking from where the oil filter is screwed into... is this the oil pump? is it difficult to replace?


Oil pump?

Your filter is leaking, check it out.

Can only be the adapter or the filter gasket

2have an oil leak around the oil filter housing, maybe around the censor....could it be a gasket or could it be coming from the nut that holds the censor?


It could be either but it is impossible to say without inspecting the car. If the leak is around the filter housing I suspect it is more likely from the oil filter. The oil filter gasket may have failed or the filter may not be screwed on firmly enough. However filters do not have to be screwed on very tightly to prevent a leak. If over tightened they can be difficult to remove and the rubber gasket can even be damaged.

I suggest you have the oil changed in the car and have the oil filter changed at the same time. This is very cheap to do and a new decent quality brand oil filter (such as MOTORCRAFT which meets Original Equipment specs for your car)) is only about $10 - if that. Whilst the oil and filter are being changed from beneath the car, with the vehicle on the hoist, it should be possible to examine the likely source of the leak.

Oil leaking around or near the oil filter


Might have to take the filter off wipe the O-ring thats on the filter clean and the area where the filter will be going on to the block. Probably has some dirt where the filter seats on the block.

1992 chevy siverado pickup 350 engine,I have a oil leak in the side of my motor around the area of the oil filter,but it's not the oil filter and i replaced the valve cover gaskets


you definately should check the oil pressure switch its probobly above or to the side of the oil filter and can make it look as if the filter is leaking,it will be threaded into the engnine itself and will have a connector on the top of it most likely with only 2 wires going to it

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.
