Do you know if the leak is coming from the seal, between the filter and the mounting plate? If so, check for a loose oil filter, the old seal stayed on the mounting plate and wasn't removed before the new filter was installed, or the mounting plate or seal is defective. So check and see and let me know how you made out. Good-luck.

Peugeot 207 1.4, small oil leak from underneath, added engine stop leak, how long before it stops leak?


oil leaks from underneath can come from front crank shaft seal --rear crank shaft seal --oil filter--sump gasket---power steering ---leaking rocker cover gaskets ---leaking oil pressure switch.--transmission seals. I suggest that you have the engine professionally cleaned and then put it on a hoist while running to see where the oil is from

Oil leak between oil pan and transmission.


Try running some of that high-mileage engine oil next time you do an oil change (it helps to swell engine seals slightly). If the problem clears up or is reduced, then it's likely that the rear main oil seal is starting to leak a little. The rubber seals will harden up and shrink a little with age.
I would also powerwash the entire area clean, so that way any leak will be easier to monitor and pinpoint.

Replace oikl filter bmw 318i 2002


oil filter is on right side of engine at the front it is in a black case which you can unscrew with a suitable strap wrench (sometimes) but it can be very tight and you require the proper tool, once open note the position of the rubber seals and replace them with the new ones supplied dont be tempted to reuse old ones,clean it all out and replace paper cartridge with new one put it back together run engine for a few minutes let it all settle and check oil level

When i do oil change, oil leaks somewhere around the oil filter, after the engine warm up leak stops. is not leaking its driping.


when you remove the old oil filter. insure the old filter seal came off with the filter. then when installing the new filter wet the new seal of the filter with a little oil. just dip your finger into new oil and smear it on the seal.

Oil leak from top side of oil filter


Make sure you oil the rubber seal on the oil filter and tighten the oil filter 3/4 of a turn more after the seal is flush with the bracket.

Developed oil leak below oil filter where block mounts to upper sump section!!


This is a real big problem with these cars! I have had the engine apart TWICE and it still leaks!

My guess is that the Aluminum parts are Warped and no matter how much sealant you use... it's going to leak. I used oil dye too and though I can see when it's coming from..the leak just won't seal!


I own a garage in CA

So, unless you have mad skills take it in..it's not going to be cheap to fix and it might not stay fixed for long. we have gotten it to leak less but never to stop %100.
