Oil leak from filter base.

Hi. Well with the info being as minute as it iws I can truly say that you need a full service tune up if you havent had one recently or on schedule. You could have a number of possible things leading to your leak besides the filter being loose or damaged causing your "filter leak". Oil will travel down the side of the block from a leaky valve cover gasket too making it seem like the drips forming on the filter bottom< came from the filter so beware> Things are not always what they seem to appear as.

Engine oil leaking near sending unit. Replaced unit and oil still leaks. What could be the cause?

Look up overhead above the sending unit for any oil that maybe dripping from above,makeing you think it's the sending unit leaking. If not then you may use a little thread sealer to seal the leak. Also check to see if the sending unit is loose and the threads may not be the same as the old unit you removed (metric/standard/pipe) Hope this will help you.

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.
