The oil filter mounts on an oil cooler housing that has an o-ring on the block side of it. The housing is held in place by the double ended connector bolt that the oil filter screws onto one side and the other goes into the block. This should be tighten to 37 ft/lbs. prior to installation of the oil filter. It may be loose or the o-ring might need replacement.

Oil leak near oil-temp sensor and oil filter


A common problem with leaking oil filters is that they were either cross threaded or the old rubber gasket stuck to the filter mount and now there are 2 filter gaskets there which could leak. As far as the oil sensor you amy be able to tighten it down after removing the wiring harness to make it stop leaking.

I HAVE A 2003 MURANO WITH 145,000 MILES. AN OIL LEAK IS JUST STARTING NEAR THE OIL FILTER AREA. IS THE OIL PRESSURE SWITCH THE CAUSE? IF SO WEAR IS IT LOCATED ON THIS 3.5 ENGINE?


Theres no way to know if the oil pressure switch is the cause, you are there to look at it, I'm not. But I would check real close the OIL COOLER. Its the housing between the oil filter and the block. There is a seal (o ring) between that housing and the engine block and I would suspect that seal leaking. Get it from the dealer, its cheap. Part number B1304-34U00

Is liking oil from the oil filter assembly


Check to make sure the filter is tight. If it is, remove the filter and chekc to make sure there is not "another" filter o-ring on the bottom of the filter housing. It's not all that common for oil change shops to miss a filter o-ring stuck to the housing, but it can happen, and yes, I have done it myself.

2004 nissan murano low 3 quarts oil. no sign of a leak and no smoke.


Hard city driving during the hot summer can and will cause a bit of oil usage. 1 qt in 500 miles is not excessive. If you recently changed oil and are using a different brand this also can cause a bit of oil usage, due to the engine getting used to it. Add to full and keep a good ck on it, it should level out. if not check your air filter, pvc valve, and any vaccume hoese.
