SOURCE: oil leaking from some sort of plug above the oil filter

If the leak is coming directly from above the oil filter it is more than likely the oil pressure switch is leaking. The seal around the Oil pressure switch could have gone bad and now it is leaking.

The oil pressure switch is located right above the the oil filter and above the cooling system cross pipe.

have you tried reversing the pipes and see if that makes any difference other than that there must be a pressure difference between the two pumps try priming the filter with oil before starting.

SOURCE: oil leak from cover around/above the oil filter

it is possible. although inferior oil filters have been known to do the same thing. for that matter inferior mechanics too. run and see if you see drips from the casing of the filter. it IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO HAVE WHAT THEY CALL "DOUBLE GASKET". SO GO GET A NISSAN OIL FILTER, PULL OFF THE OLD ONE AND CHECK FOR THE PRESSENCE OF 2 GASKETS OR O RINGS.

SOURCE: HAVE A OIL LEAK COMING FROM ABOVE THE OIL FILTER.

Has the oil filter just been replaced? Sometimes the old gasket sticks to the mounting area, causing leakage if the new filter is installed on top of it. It is also possible the gasket was for some reason missing on a new filter. Let me know if this is not the cause, I'll try to help further.

SOURCE: oil leak near oil filter, just above the oil

Probably the oil cooler seal. This large o-ring is located between the oil cooler and the block adapter. After removing the oil filter, you will see a single nut on the threaded portion of the pipe that the filter screws onto. Removing this nut will allow you to remove the oil cooler. You may want to disconnect the coolant lines from the oil cooler (makes the job a little easier), but be sure to plug the lines as you remove them so you don't loose coolant. The o-ring will be on the top side of the oil cooler. A new o-ring will cost you $3 to $9, depending on where you get it. For a VW repair . . . this one is cheap and pretty easy to do. The parts diagram below may help. The seal is part #19.

What causes the oil filter housing to leak - it is above the filter - we replaced the filter but this is on seam about 1/2 inch above the top of the filter


If there is a spacer between the oil filter and the engine block then you would could have a bad seal on it. If its similar to a Honda there will be to hoses going to the spacer. This spacer is called the oil cooler adapter. If this is it. Take oil filter off and the remove the oil cooler nut if there is enough room you won't need to disconnect cooling lines. Pry the Adapter away from the block with screw driver. remove old seal clean surface with clean rag install new seal. Wipe a little oil around the seal just like you would the oil filter. 'Tighten snug, but don't over tighten. Not sure the correct torque for this. Hope this helps you. This similar problem occurred on my 1995 Honda Odyssey.

My jaguar xjs v12 1989 the red oil warning light show on idle and turn off when running. any suggestion ?


oil sending sensor could be bad. I know a few different type of cars have trouble with the oil sending unit. They all pretty much do the same thing, "oil light comes on at idle and goes off as you drive". But on the other hand it could be a little more serious.

1995 Jaguar XJ6 oil pressure gauge


This is OK. Oil pressure is always higher when the engine is cold.

As an engine accumulates miles the pressure will start to drop due to bearing clearances increasing.

If this just started to happen you may want to replace the oil filter and or oil pressure sending unit.

Oil leak


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!
