Re: housing oil filter diagram
I would suggest then going to the Chilton's Manual, you can purchase in any automotive repair store or order online. Usually it's the oil filter and it has seals that can crack and go bad. But I would also suggest having the appropriate amount of quarts of oil and drain it, or otherwise it will become a super messy job.

is it leaking from top of filter -remove filter and check o-ring for damage and check housing for old o-ring[double gasket it happens] if good check housing for cracks and that gasket is good and bolts are tight -also check the pan gasket and bolts are good
First thing is to make sure the oil filter gasket is on and that only one is on it and not two. You want to make sure the oil filter is sealed properly to the oil filter housing first because this too can cause oil to leak. This can be a common mistake. Remove the oil filter and double check the oil filter has only one gasket on it and make sure it is not spit. Put the oil filter back on, with one good gasket, and clean the area up and top the oil off to proper fill and then start the vehicle and look at the filter as the engine is running. If you see no leaks after a few seconds then this may have been your issue. If you still see oil leaking the you will need to remove the oil filter and remove the oil filter housing. One of the "O" rings inside might have cracked or shifted. I recommend not driving or starting the engine until this issue is repaired.
Put the car on a lift or jacks. Since it has low clearnance you will need lower jacks or use a ramp.
Remove the oil cap and the oil filter. You may need a strap wrench if the oil filter is too tight to come off by hand.
Look for trap door under the metal cover underneath the car. Open the trap door and you will have access to the oil pan drain bolt.
Use 17mm socket to remove the drain bolt and catch oil into a basin.
Remove the oil filter from the oil cap housing. YOu will also have to remove a large and small oil ring as well as a washer. The new filter will come with those. The oil rings must go into the groove to prevent oil from leaking. The filter goes on the cap housing. The washer that comes with the oil filter goes with the drain plug. Take off the old washer drain plug and put on the new washer drain plug and drain bolt once all oil has poured out.
Ratchet in drain bolt and close the trap door. Put on oil filter by hand. Put in 7 quarts of 5w-30 oil. Check with the dipstick as you get to the last half quart.
Replace oil cap, start engine, and check for any indications of leaks.
oil filter screws onto an adapter housing which also has the pressure sending unit on it (above oil filter). This adapter housing bolts to the block with 3 bolts. if oil appears to be leaking from where the adapter housing meets the block (especially at the rear side of engine near bottom), then you need to replace the siamese o-rings between the adapter housing and the block ($12 part at dealer). remove lowest 12mm bolt and loosen top 2 12 mm bolts(top 2 bolts won't come out unless you drop the engine down, but loosening 1 inch is all you need), replace o-rings and retighten bolts. be careful not to get dirt/grit between block and adapter. just finished doing this to son's 95 2.7 v6 which was leaving an 8" puddle of oil after idling for only 1 minute-worked perfect
This is not an easy repair in your driveway, but can be done. 1st thing, have you checked to see if the oil filter is the issue or is it the drain plug? If its the oil filter housing gasket, you will need to remove the filter. The housing is held in place by the threaded bolt assy that the filter screws onto. You will need to remove that bolt, remove the coolant hoses. Clean the engine block surfaces, for the new gasket to mate to, clean the cooling housing surfaces, install the bolt through the housing, and install the gasket onto it. Then install the bolt/housing into the block and tighten the bolt. Install the coolant hoses, oil filter. Fill the cooling system with the coolant that you removed. Fill the engine with oil, start and check for leaks.
Drive car on ramps or 2 2x12s reach behind oil pan remove bolt drain hot oil from car that has just been driven.into pan. When oil is just dripping very slow say 15 min replace plug. Now just behind front bumper next to engine is an oil filter remove it with an oil filter wrench. Make sure the gasket came off with the filter or just reach up with a clean rag and wipe the housing it will fall off if you touch it. Put oil on gasket of new filter and screw it on when the gasket touches the housing go 3/4 s of a turn more. Put in about 5-1/2 to6 quarts of 10w 30 oil. Start engine for a min ck for leaks shut off and ck dip stick and make sure it reads full after sitting 5 min or so to let oil dip down into pan
you probably won't need a diagram. If you know where the oil pan is. Under the car. There is the oil pan and it has a plug. Put an oil change container under it and remove the plug with a wrench. Let the oil drain out. Replace the plug.You should replace the oil filter too with each oil change. Then after replacing the plug and installing a new oil filter. Put in 4 quarts of oil into the engine by removing the oil cap on top of the valve covers. And your done. check the oil after running the car a while to see if it does not need more oil. Do NOT OVERFILL!! That can ruin the gaskets and an oil leak can occur. I hope this helps you. You can go to autozone .com if you need more info. Just click on the DIY and repair guide.
my car was doing the exact same thing and i spent about 18 hrs total trying to figure out. if you remove the oil filter, you will notice that the "bracket" that the oil filter attaches to is removable. remove the ENTIRE oil filter assembly. there is a bolt almost behind the crank pulley, its tricky to get to but you can get to it with a 1/4 in drive, swivel, and extension, i do believe it was a 10-12 mm socket (MUST BE ^POINT SHORT WELL) the top left bolt on the assembly you will notice that you can not get out. that is fine, take the rest of the bolts out and let the assembly hang from that bolt, BUT the bolt must me loosend all of the way to achive play in it. take a small screw driver and "break" the seal on the assembly. you will notice 2 holes. around those two holes is a single gasket. even the smallest crack will aloow oil to drip. my car was using about a gallon of oil every ten miles, so you can imagine how much oil i when through, replace the gasket. You can not get the rubber gasket ANYWHERE except a honda dealer. replace. put it together and you all set.
