My Bmw High mileage 320i E90 is having oil leaks problems they have changed the oil gaskets pipes from BMW butelp


clean the engine and check where it is coming from. Is it at the front of the rear> do you smell burning oil when you switch off the engine? Clean an area under the engine compartment and see where the oil is dripping from and get back to us. Typical places for leaks are the valve cover gasket, oil filter housing bracket.

Oil leak at filter


If it's at the filter replace the filter. If it's at the mount/engine side replace the seal/gasket. The filter bracket is taken off by removing the filter. The screw that the filter goes on has a nut built on it. remove it to remove the bracket. If it is a seal get a new one and add some silicone. If it is a gasket, clean it off, just use silicone.

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

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.

Oil cooler seal


There are two items that can be leaking oil there. There is a gasket between the oiler cooler flange (the item attached to the engine), and the rubber gasket/seal that goes between the cooler and the flange. (the latter is the one that leaks most often as most oil change shops over tighten the oil filter).
I just replaced the gasket between the cooler and flange recently. I chose to do it quick and dirty: 1. remove oil filter 2. remove oil filter nipple (the portion you screw the filter onto) 2a. you'll need a deep well socket to get the bolt that holds the cooler tight (I believe 27mm)
2b. pull down the cooler, Grab the nipple with a pair of pliers between the flange and cooler and loosen/remove
3. remove old gasket/seal and clean surface 4. put new seal/gasket in place 5. re-seat the nipple back in. use the pliers method, just make sure you don't scar the threads where you NEED them( you don't need all of them). 6. put some gasket sealer (oil friendly) on the gasket and make sure its in place 7. tighten oil cooler onto flange with large nut and socket 8. replace oil filter and add oil as needed.
it is a tight working area, expect some scrapped knuckles, but it isn't too difficult.
good luck
