I had this problem on my 06 G6. The oil filter housing gasgket needed to be replaced. The oild filter housing is what the oil filter screws onto, and the housing attaches to the block of the motor, and theres a gasgket inbetween the block and housing. The oil filter housing is held on with three screws, and one is extremely difficult to get to. I also had to remove the belt and unbolt the a/c compressor.

SOURCE: leaking oil bad

If you're certain it isn't your oil filter, then it can only be three other things. The first (and easiest) thing to check is a small diamond-shaped plate on the side of the block, under the intake manifold, towards the alternator. It has a bolt and a stud in it. Verify that both of those are tight. If they are tight, check the four bolts that secure the "push rod cover" to the side of the engine. The push rod cover runs the length of the engine and is located directly under the intake manifold. This was the culprit of my oil leak, and I imagine it will be yours also. However, if you find that those bolts are tight and no oil can be found leaking from that area, check your valve cover. The Fiero valve covers were stamped from very pliable steel and it is difficult, at best, to get them to seal correctly. Problems usually occur when people torque the bolts too tight and bend the valve cover. I recommend a product called "Indianhead" gasket shellac. Remove the valve cover and ensure all gasket surfaces are clean. Ensure the valve cover's gasket mating surface is straight - straighten with a hammer and block of wood if needed. Follow the directions on the bottle to the letter, making sure to coat your valve cover gasket surface, both sides of your gasket, and the gasket surface on the head.

If it is leaking at the oil filter the previous rubber gasket may have stuck to the block. When the new oil filter was installed then the gasket was doubled and will leak.

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.

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.

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.
