You basically have to unbolt the oil pan and then replace the filter inside.

SOURCE: 1998 s10 oil leak

well it wont be the oil pan seal then cause they never leaked that much. I would go back and look at the filter he put on. could be just a problem with it. for the cost of one put another one on and make sure the gasket surfacce is clean down to the metal engine block.

SOURCE: 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante OBD2 cod p1751... where is the A/T relay

Has this symptom occured several times or just a one off? If the trans works OK I wouldn't mess with it.You know what they say about sleeping dogs! I think Mitsis are not that strong in the auto trans department

SOURCE: my oil filter is leaking and it is tight

If anyone else has this problem, I'm betting its your oil filter adapter gasket. Of course check to see if the problem is just a bad oil filter seal but mine was not. The oil filter adapter is like 10 - $15 at Auto Zone or Napa. If you feel you can't do the job yourself then take it to the auto repair shop. It's only four bolts and change out the gasket but you must drain the coolant cause the water run through the same housing and it's kind of a pain to get to on the vehicle. Napa gasket p/n is 70801

I have an oil leaking from under my valve cover. How easy is it to change the gasket. I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante. V6 3500 24 valve engine

its an easy fix get a new gasket ready and remove old one. before you put in the new one clean both surfaces on cover and head and put a smear of silicone sealer on both sides of gasket and carefully put together and make sure sealent doesnt go into engine tighten all the bolts evenly working in opposites and leave to let sealer set this will cure any leaks

My 2001 magna automatic won't go into drive,reserve etc. I was driving along fine then the next thing it just rolled.engine was running but won't move in any gear.

The torque converter on the gearbox has gone, this is what converters the power from the engine to the gearbox, not cheap!!!

When engine is cold neutral and drive light keeps blinking

Go and have the battery tested. The first post is correct but a low battery voltage (caused when cold) will definately contribute to problems with the transmission and if you miss even a few shifts with the F4A51 transmission, you will break the wave spring.

'02 Diamante oil light and clicking noise

Here goes:
Please do not drive the car.
Have the car towed to a well-recommended garage
Have someone unscrew the oil pressure light or gauge sending unit in the engine block and screw is a oil pressure guage ( hand held, used in garages).
Test that pressure carefully at all speeds.
Either you have: a bad oil pump, a plugged oil filter, a clogged oil passageway, or a bad engine.
The ticking sound might be valve lifters that are not receiving oil.
God bless your efforts.

Transmission changes slowly

When it was cold weather the oil is thicker and definitely here the transmission needs a good flush. Be careful to use the genuine Mitsubishi transmission oil as it was designed for it.
