It's a good idea to replace the unit. If it still leaks, a Teflon or thread-locker will work. Some of these have a seal and it may be bad. Good luck

If at filter it could be only what comes out (oil drip) when changing oil filter. If filter is good then use oil filter tighter tool to tighten the filter snugger. Make sure its not the oil bolt that is leaking, which could leave that pesky oil spots. Tighten it or replace oil bolt with new one.

My 2000 Ford Expedition has a major oil leak from somewhere around the Starter or Oil Filter housing, Looks like it's towards the front of the Motor, What could be leaking and how do I fix it?


Could be a number of things. Oil pan gasket, check around oil pan to see if its wet. Front crank seal could be leaking and blowing back if its bad enough. Check around and in behind your crankshaft pulley. I would also check your tranny cooler lines and power steering lines, if they are leaking bad enough the oil will get blown back when you drive. Also check to see how high up the engine the oil starts coming from that will give you some indication of where it starts.

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.

740 Oil Cap Leaking, Lots of Oil


presuming the oil is coming from around the filler cap..theres usualy a rubber seal around the base, these can become brittle and break,sometimes quite a large piece (1/4 inch) can break off making a fair old leak from the oil splashing around from the cam, replace it with a NEW one, should cure problem
