Take the filter off, then look up into the housing that the filter screws into. You should see the head of a bolt, 3/4 i want to say. Check it, i bet its loose. Same thing happened to mine. Just tighten that puppy up and put your filter back in. The bolt holds the housing for the cooler lines/filter on to the block, if its loose oil will seep, whats worse is that if it is slightly loose and you dont know it everytime you change the filter you will loosen it more and drive yourself insane trying to find the leak. hope this helps

It is the oil cooler lines that run to the radiator to cool the oil.
Go to a auto parts store, tell them your make model of vehicle, and they can get you a seal kit.
Please let me know how it goes.

I have a 1993 Honda del sol,my oil filter leaks no matter what kind i put on and how tight it is.

I am sure you are positive that nothing is leaking somewhere else making you think it is coming from the oil filter ...In most cases it is the oil sending unit leaking near or around it...The oil sending unit looks like an electrical plug with wires attached to it ....However it only takes one grain of sand to make an oil filter leak...Does it leak as soon as you put it on..?..Does it only leak when it gets hot.?..Do you always clean the oil from filter area that comes from old filter when removed..Sometimes oil gets trapped in the frame under vehicle and makes you think it is leaking..It normally takes the oil a long time to finally leave the frame area if trapped considering some frame designs and small lips and curves of suspension..I would recommend after removing old filter USE SAFETY GLASSES AND BREATHING MASK..clean all around it with starting fluid ...,it will dry off quickly"Wipe everything around it to a clean shine..let it dry completely..use a good flashlight and closely examine filter stud threads at filter sure base and threads are very clean...Don't forget to lube rubber seal on new filter before installing it..DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN..THIS WILL DAMAGE THREADS..get safety glasses and breathing mask ...It would be a good idea to raise front of car and place on sturdy Jack stands ..Don't forget to set Emerg.brake and block wheels for safety..If there is no doubt it is the filter The threaded stud that filter fits on could be partially stripped will make you think it is on tight but it will actually be on slightly offset from filter base...

My 96 jetta 2.0 is leaking oil from the top of the oil filter mounting area where the water hoses connect to looks like it has two or three pieces bolted together might be plastic.can I take apart...

The oil is most likely leaking from the oil cooler seal. The oil cooler is the square aluminum piece that the oil filter screws onto. To replace the seal, remove the filter, remove both coolant hoses that attach to the cooler, remove the nut that secures the cooler to the block and slide the cooler off the tube. Replace the rubber o-ring seal which is available at the VW dealer. It's inexpensive. Replace everything in reverse order. Good luck

You need to remove the filter and unbolt the oil cooler assembly from the block. There is a large O ring that seals the cooler assembly to the engine block. Replace it. Also examine or replace the fittings where the lines attach to the side of the cooler. It is bound to be one of those issues.

2have an oil leak around the oil filter housing, maybe around the censor....could it be a gasket or could it be coming from the nut that holds the censor?

It could be either but it is impossible to say without inspecting the car. If the leak is around the filter housing I suspect it is more likely from the oil filter. The oil filter gasket may have failed or the filter may not be screwed on firmly enough. However filters do not have to be screwed on very tightly to prevent a leak. If over tightened they can be difficult to remove and the rubber gasket can even be damaged.

I suggest you have the oil changed in the car and have the oil filter changed at the same time. This is very cheap to do and a new decent quality brand oil filter (such as MOTORCRAFT which meets Original Equipment specs for your car)) is only about $10 - if that. Whilst the oil and filter are being changed from beneath the car, with the vehicle on the hoist, it should be possible to examine the likely source of the leak.

Hi toyota vista has oil light on has oil in it where is the oil pressure switch

in most cases the oil pressure switch/oil sending unit, is located right above the oil filter on the hang. if not, you can look around the oil filter area for something that look like a kind of plug with a single wire attached to it.

How do I change oil filter

open the pan bolt on oil pan and drain all the oil.reinstall pan bolt. it is a 5/8 6 point socket,or 5/8 wrench.then you need an oil filter wrench.turn counterclockwise looking at the bottom of the filter.make sure the gasket is attached to the filter.,and not still on the car....install the new filter,putting a layer of oil on the gasket first.tighten till contact,then one not overtighten .fill with 3 litres and check the stick. keep adding until the full mark. start the car and let run 10 seconds,look underneath and make sure it is not leaking.
let sit 2 minutes and check again.the filter uses about 300ml,so top up til full and your'e done.
wipe up any excess around the pan bolt and filter.

Oil Leak

hi there, first of all the oil pan is the underneath cover of your engine. if its the one leaking you'll surely know because its the oil reservoir of your engine. whether your running or just parked in your garage the oil remains on engine oil pan. it is possible that sometime when you changed oil filter, maybe you might have nodged on somthing that made it loose . usually if your engine has an oil cooler, it looks like a stainless steel finished waffle shaped thing that has maybe has 1 or two rubber hoses attached to it or sometimes a steel pipe that runs from the water pump into the oil coller and back to the top exit ports of the thermostat and into the radiator and cycles again.hope this would assist you.

Oil leak

Northstar engine, that's about right. They do take about 8 quarts.
The most common place they leak at is at the oil filter housing that attaches to the block of the engine.

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!
