SOURCE: Major oil leak after oil change

Your filter was installed either without the rubber seal, or the seal wasn't lubed before installation and it slipped, causing an improper seal. You will have to drain the oil again, remove the filter, and make sure it is reinstalled with a proper seal.

SOURCE: 2006 hyundai sonata oil filter leak

I finally figured this out. I was putting the o-ring on incorrectly. I actually had two o-rings installed.
The o-ring should not be visible when it is tightened down. The plastic should be touching the metal housing. The o-ring sits inside the housing, right above the threads, but not at the top. Two pictures attached._388.jpg

SOURCE: oil filter leaks around the housing no matter what

Take the oil filter off. check to make sure you don't have 2 gaskets on there. Sometimes the old oil filter gasket sticks. This will cause a leak no matter how hard you tighten. When you remove the filter and hove only one rubber gasket, check it to make sure it was not pinched or scarred. then check the block for anything that might make a gap, or that the metal is not scarred or a crack. I would use a new filter to go back( that's just me). hope this helps

Oil leak


oil can leak in several places n your car,valve cover gaskets ,oil pan, rear main seal timing covers, oil pressure switch, oil drain plug, adn the oil filter if on too loose or if punctured. go to your local parts house and pick up a small ultra violet flashlight and 1 bottle of oil dye.( this will not harm your oil or the engine so you could leave it in until you change oil again) Install the dye in the oil filler cap and replace the cap. Next wipe away all the oil you can get to from the top and bottom of the engine. drive vehicle around the block 3 or 4 times allowing the dye to circulate and leak out. Now take your black light flashlight and start looking for a bright yellow or green to show up on the engine. Follow the green line right back to where it came from, there is at least one of your many possible leaks.

Where is the oil filter on a 2006 sonata, 3.3 6cyl?


This is an element type and is encase in a housing
located on the drivers side of the engine behind a plastic cover. Likely black in color. You will need to turn steady as the cap is plastic and does stand a chance of cracking if handled improperly. When tightening, tighten till snug. It does not take a huge amount of torque to create a seal and accomplish the task. Snug and run the engine and just double check for leaks. Let me know if you need anything else.

I HAVE AN OIL LEAK FROM MY PUNTO, THE OIL SEEMS TO BE COMING FROM AROUND THE OIL FILTER, IT IS RUNNING OUT, IS IT LIKELY TO BE THE SUMP OR ARE THERE PROBLEMS WITH THE FILTER OR FILTER HOUSING


Hi,
To make sure that oil leaks are coming from the oil filter, clean the side of your engine, remove all the oil sludge and sump. Then run your engine for an hour, check the oil around the oil filter and the whole side of the engine.
If the oil was found around the filter, it means you have to replace the filter immediately. The oil seal on the oil filter is already done!
Hope that helps you!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Car is stalling out when cold


"Take the trans pan off and it is there. It will take about 4 quarts of trans fluid to refil the trans."
If the question refers to the engine oil filter, then it is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, just to the right of the engine oil pan. There is a suspension fork just under the oil filter, so you have to look above that or around it and you will see the filter. The top of the oil filter will be facing to the left, pointing toward the passenger side tire. There is a small flap on the left of the filter that you will have to push out of the way to get your hand on the top of the filter. I recommend jacking up that side of the car a few inches to get your arm in there. I also recommend using a FRAM filter, that way you can take advantage of the top grip feature so that you can get a much better grip on the filter and remove it very easily. Remember to "moisten" the gasket on the new filter before installing it. The Sonata takes 5 quarts of whatever premium oil you want to use, however, I cannot recommend a brand without starting an argument. I believe the car manual call for 5w30, but I have used 10w30 with no issues. Best of luck...
