Well like Vlad I could guess as well, first clean off all oil from where you think it could be coming from, that's all around the filter. Start the engine and watch for the leak, as Vlad said it could be the rubber sealing ring on the filter itself, in which case try tightening the filter (sometimes they can loosen off if not fitted correctly) or as Vlad said replace the filter. (do an oil change too). if it isn't the filter ring (and you will only see by cleaning it off first) I would suggest it could be the actual housing that the filter fastens too, in which case you would need to remove the housing and replace the gasket. Cleaning it all off first is the best way to proceed, that way you stand a chance of tracing the source of the leak

You need just a robber ring under the filter (the best way is to replace oil/filter)

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: 2008 Kia Sedona Van - oil filter leaks like the exxon valdez

I never heard such a thing ,first of all get under your vehicle and see if you can tell where the leak is coming from,A oil filter has a rubber gasket when applied with a thin coat of motor oil will seal itself ,you must tighten the filter on the spindle until it is snug fit(not over tighten) make sure your using manufacture suggested size and fit for your year vehicle.You may also want to check the oil drain plug it may have stripped threads and it could easily be your problem or the gasket around your oil pan could be bad. last but not least check for double gasketing it is when the o ring gasket of the old oil filter is still sealed on the oil housing area this would easily cause leakage.I hope i covered all your possibilities and please give me a 4 thumbs up if i was a help for you

SOURCE: need to replace water pump in2005 kia sedona

The kia sedona water pump is an internal pump and needs to be replaced with timing belt service. if it is leaking, then you need to change the timing belt as well. probably not something you want to do in the back yard and will run you between 400 and 600 depending on your location and shop.

Oil leaking from around oil filter housing..have replaced gaskets, its not double sealed, and tightened as should be..still leaking upon every engine

If the leak was coming from the oil filter gasket, it would leak the whole time the engine is running. Is this what it is doing, or does it only leak on start?

I would check the fuel pressure and replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been replaced for awhile. The last 2 fuel filters I changed, the gas coming out of it looked like black ink.
