If that is what you're describing just replace the rubber ring under the filter.

SOURCE: oil leak behind oil filter

you probably have the old gaskket still on the filter or the filter receptacle. Remove the filter and check to see if the gasket is on the filter. Then check where you screw it on there may be the other gasket stuck to that.

SOURCE: oil leak

If it's leaking from the oil filter spacer.( the 2 inch metal ring that attaches to your block, and has two rubber hoses coming out of it, and your oil filter attaches to) There is an o-ring between the spacer and the block. Take off your oil filter, remove the oil filter stud with 1 3/16" socket( or metric equivalent) and the spacer will come off. I found all the auto parts stores around me said that the o-ring was a dealer item. I bought a FRAM PH3387A oil filter and removed the o-ring on that. It fit perfectly, snug down your oil filter stud to specs, then install your oil filter. Double check that the oil filter is not double gasketed, and your are fixed!

SOURCE: Oil Leak on engine drips down from oil filter

i had the same issue. turned out to just be a plasic o ring cracked. theres a metal line that runs out from the mounting area of the oil filter next to the oil pressure sending unit that is for cooling oil (youll have to get the air box out of the way to access it). disconnet that line and there it is. i looked all over to try and find a plastic o ring and no one had it. i slapped a plain ole rubber o ring on there and WA LA! no more oil stains on my drive way.

these lines are called engine oil cooler lines and is a common problem.you can only change them in pairs,there is also a gasket or 0 rings seals that should be replaced at the same time were the lines connect to the filter housing.

Oil leak in front in front behind bumber mitsubishi gt 2004. it seems its leaking from an orange it looks like a coffee cup in size that's screwd on.. Was never leaking until yesterday , after i put oil...


When changing the oil it is important to wet the sealing o-ring with oil before screwing it on. Tighten the filter 3/4 turns after the seal touches the engine. Most oil filters have clear installation instructions on the box or actual filter. Look carefully , if your oil filter is leaking, Take off the leaking filter and replace it with a new one. Top up the engine oil as needed.

Where is the commen oil leak on a 97 ford taurus


Maybe, maybe not, It's most likely a bad rear seal or worn main bearings but check the oil filter just to be safe. Sometimes things go wrong when changing the oil filter that can cause similar symptoms.
1) old gasket left behind.
2) cross threaded filter.
3) loose filter.
4) damage gasket or defective new filter.

1998 olds Aurora i have an oil leak, is it common


There are common places, you'll just have to look around to see where the leak is:
Around the oil filter and the housing
Around the oil pan and the pan gasket
The oil seal behind the damper pulley
Valve cover gaskets
These are the most common places, leaks can spring up anywhere.

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.
