Got a little oil leak on my 98 chevy s10 its by the oil filter is it the oil filter?


Sounds like the seal on your filter is bad. I'm guessing you tried tightening it by hand. Unscrew the filter and inspect the rubber gasket around it. It's also a good time to throw a new one on it anyway Inspect the block where filter goes on , and make sure you don't see dirt or any obviuos cracks . Before you put the filter back on, wet the rubber gasket with oil. Just a bit. This makes a better seal, and is easier to change the next time.. Hope this helps, rate this solution

2002 outback 2.5 liter eng. leaks oil behind the plastic cover plate in front of engine benind pulley. would this be a major seal?


It's the front crank seal. You have to take the timing belt out to replace the seal. The seal is mounted in the oil pump, which is bolted to the front of the engine block. Please let me know if you have questions.

Check serpentine belt, the radidator hose , the air conditioner compressor and also the differential seal they common cause for rubber smell.

Check for any rubber part that can be in contact with exhaust system and inspect wirings looking for shorts.

Also ensure that the smell is not coming from a bad tyre, and check for oil leaks in your engine, burnt oil can be confused with rubbere smell.

There are two slots in the valve cover right by the cam shaft sprocket that have to be honda bonded or black rtv. look closely at the valve cover right above the gasket underneath the timing belt cover. Hope that helps.
