The oil filter may have been over torqued and the rubber gasket has jumped it's seat on the oil filter. Spray down the oil filter mount and engine and look to see where the oil is seeping through the filter when the engine is running. Best thing to do is replace the oil filter. Good luck and hope this helps.

Leak from housing oil filteager at 2000 kia sport


In most cases, the mount to which the filter attaches is a integral part of the engine block casting, so any leakage there could be a very big problem.

Having said that....I'm relatively sure your problem is not a leak in the filter mount, but rather the filter itself.

If the filter isn't securing tightened after replacing, it can very easily leak.

Most "spin on" filters recommend tightening from 1/2 to 3/4 turns after the initial contact of the gasket on the filter base with the machined gasket seat on the filter mount (the part of the engine block I earlier noted).

Another possibility could be a nicked (cut) gasket.

When replacing a filter, wipe the base seat with a CLEAN rag, and put a light coating of CLEAN oil on the gasket itself (on the spin on filter), thereby reducing the likelihood of gasket damage upon installation.

Hope this is of small degree of help with your problem.

Good luck!

Looks like the oil is leaking out right above the


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

Oil leak above oil filter . Ther is a adapter. on a 1995 chvey 5.7 motor


There is a rubber o-ring between the oil filter adaptor and the engine block that needs replacement.
Disconnect the two oil cooler lines from the adaptor. remove oil filter. Two torx head bolts mount the adaptor to the block. rmove these and replace o-ring. Assemble in the reverse order of removal.

OIL LEAK COMING CLOSE TO THE OIL FILTER


if you had recently done or had an oil change done sometimes the gasket from the old oil filter sticks to the block. when you install the new oil filter it ends up with 2 gaskets and leaks around the base where filter meets oil cooler. another posability is the oil pressure sending unit is mounted just above the filter.

2004 Murano has an oil leak near the oil filter mounting backet.


The oil filter mounts on an oil cooler housing that has an o-ring on the block side of it. The housing is held in place by the double ended connector bolt that the oil filter screws onto one side and the other goes into the block. This should be tighten to 37 ft/lbs. prior to installation of the oil filter. It may be loose or the o-ring might need replacement.

Oil leaking on front right side of the car near oil pan and oil filter


You need to clean the engine and then run the vehicle while watching the area. The most common failure is the oil sending unit located near the oil filter. I have also seen a leak develop between the oil pump housing, which is mounted directly behind the hamonic balencer and the engine block.
