Replace the filter and try to apply a thin film of oil before installing. Do not over tighten.

I have a oil leak and i dont know where its coming from


oil leaks from points like bad rocker cover gaskets --loose oil filters---front and rear main seals and oil hoses--- loose head gaskets at the oil hole . Check the ground and see where the oil is dripping to get an idea if the oil is from the front, rear. left or rights side

I have a leak that appears to be right under the oil filter..It is not a oil pan gasket leak. What I need to know is????? Can you fix that type of problem without removing the oil from the oil pan.


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE FILTER MAYBE DOUBLE GASKETED...AND NO YOU WON'T HAVE TO DRAIN THE OIL JUST SPIN OFF THE FILTER AND CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE A GASKET ON THE FILTER AS WELL AS THE HOUSING

My car has an oil leak somewhere around the middle of the engine on the passenger side and its not the oil pump.When sitting still it does not leak much but when hot and running it almost seems to pour...


You really just have to get in there with a rag and clean it up. If you dont see the leak right away clean everything that looks wet and look the next day to see where it is wet again. Then you will be able to see where the leak is coming. Did you pay for this solution or is it free?? just wondering fix ya has a new site so i dont know how it works yet. Let me know. Thanks

if it leaves small spots the chances are its the pan gasket but the oil filter should be located up in front of the engine on the right hand side... depending on the size of motor

Oil leaking around or near the oil filter


Might have to take the filter off wipe the O-ring thats on the filter clean and the area where the filter will be going on to the block. Probably has some dirt where the filter seats on the block.

My oil is leaking from right below where the filter screws on


The oil filter sometimes starts leaking from old age, and if its been a while since your last oil change, just have your oil changed. On the other hand, your filter could be loose. Grab a rag in your hand and try and tighten the filter by turning it to the right. If it's loose, tighten it hand tight.

Oil leaking from some sort of plug above the oil filter


If the leak is coming directly from above the oil filter it is more than likely the oil pressure switch is leaking. The seal around the Oil pressure switch could have gone bad and now it is leaking.

The oil pressure switch is located right above the the oil filter and above the cooling system cross pipe.
