If its the oil filter housing then pull the housing off and replace the gasket.

SOURCE: leaks oil ,changed oil pressure switch, still

this is possiable, the best thing to do is have the engine cleaned of all residual oil and then drive the car a few ays and recheck the leak, it will be easier to see the source of the leak that way, on oil leaks i hate to guess, oil gets blown everywhere by road draft so it come from up front and be all over the side of the engine

there are only 2 way sto find leaks, get it clean, drive short distance.

Front seal leaking in gear box

If it is the front seal in the gear box then the box has to come out. The seal is in the extension housing that the clutch throw out bearing runs on and the seal can be replaced by removing that housing . However mostly if that seal leaks then the front bearing on the clutch shaft may be failing allowing the shaft to move and that is why the seal leaks. If the front of the box is dry then the oil leak may be the rear main seal of the engine so it is best to check both arrears as the oil leaks from the same point in the bell housing

My 1992 honda accord ex leaks oil dripping from the oil filter housing onto the muffler that smokes when the car is running and smells. I have replaced teh o-ring for the housing twice but it still leaks....

if you have replaced the O ring already it either got pinched when tightening, or the housing itself is warped or has a hairline crack, check the o ring again, and inspect the actual housing

Anyone have a solution to the distributor leaking oil. This is the second one that has this problem and I hate to shell out a couple hundred buck for a new one every time it starts leaking. Cressida...

will try to help. been there with the vibrating cressidas, sometimes have to even make sure the oil filers staying tight.i can tell you what i've done in the past. i've used blue rtv glue to form seals and to help existing seals it's oil resistant and does help with leaks, if it's a hot spot, i use the orange heat resistant rtv glue. you can find it at autozone advance auto, or another parts store locally. as in any repair with rtv,i always go another step and let rtv dry 24hrs. if it continually leaks up the shaft, you've got great oil pressure for sure,just got to keep it in. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

Replaced rear main seals and oil pressure sending on a 2000 z71

Check the oil filter housing and the cooler lines at the housing. The oil filter housing gaskets are good for no more than 15k to 30k miles if your lucky. The lines at the housing are easy to strip out when you reinstall them so take your time if you do it yourself an once you are finished and ready to start the truck, let it run for about 15 minutes and constantly check the area for leaks prior to road testing the vehicle.

1998 olds Aurora i have an oil leak, is it common

There are common places, you'll just have to look around to see where the leak is:
Around the oil filter and the housing
Around the oil pan and the pan gasket
The oil seal behind the damper pulley
Valve cover gaskets
These are the most common places, leaks can spring up anywhere.

Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter

If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.
