Question about Volkswagen Jetta

Open Question

Is there a certian way to seat the oil filter seal. I noticed a small tab on the seal and was wondering if that needs to be facing up or down when seating. Kept screwing on the filter housing and it was leaking from the top of the threads even after tightening?

Hi please can you help ive recently overhauled the the engine on my 2l opel rekord 1986 model but for some reason it keeps blowing the oil seal on the oil filter on start once then during idling once.


full rebuild with bearings, rings, head ,referb ,new oil pump
or partial rebuild re ring ?

filter issue wont be because of rebuild or higher oil pressure

try filling the filter with some oil before fitting
are you smearing the new oil filter seal with new oil before fitting
and is the surface of the face where the oil filter spins smooth no scratches or gouges or roughness

wierd
if the seal is intact you can use silicon sealant
to get it to seat and not leak

are to putting the filter on too tight or not tight enough?

spin till contact is made to block
and hand tighten only no filter tool
run motor and if leaking tighten one third turn more

if you use the tool and screw it on heavy
will flatten the seal and
you may need to cut the oil filter off next surface

How to change cabin filter 2011 Lacrosse


I just changed mine yesterday and these tips listed above were unfortunately incorrect.

Step 1 - Open the passenger door
There is a panel that has no screws on the flatside of the dashboard which faces against the closed door at the jam side. Use a body tool and pry the panel carefully exposing the inside area of the glovebox. If possible dont do this in cold weather because the tabs are plastic. Inside the panel you will see one small tab that the glove box has a 1/4 plastic clip seated in the tab.

Step 2 - Open the glove box. Remove the 3 hex screws on the top interior row of the glove box.

Step 3 - At the right and left corners of the bottom of the glove box remove the two front facing screws on the lower hinge.

Step 4- At the very bottom parallel to the floor there are two more hex screws remove those (they hold the plastic vent in place underneath the glove box. Pull the vent downward to release the tabs.
IMPORTANT: Dont forget to go back to step 1 and pull the small tab from the slot in the dashboard cover area ( Inside the panel you will see one small tab that the glove box has a 1/4 plastic clip seated in the tab)

Step 5 - Pull down on the glove box to release the clips.

Step 6 - You will see a black box inside. There are three tabs (right, top, and left) pull them individually to remove the front facing cover. Inside you will see the air filter. Remove and have airflow arrow pointed downward.

Reverse steps to reinstall. Be sure to line up the clips before pressing them back in place. Do not force them!

Good luck. I hope this helps. I did mine on the first attempt with no issues in about 10 minutes (I'm not a mechanic).

2000 Monte Carlo has a slow oil leak started noticing oil on the garage floor. I also noticed that if I park the car on a small incline such as my drive way the leak goes away at least there's no oil on...


as a mechanic I will say it can be multi things that can cause a leak. but when you say it goes away on slight incline that normaly means it is toward the front of the engine. I must say just because their is low miles does not mean a seal will not go out. I have replaced seals on cars with only 10,000. It is normaly caused from vibration or misplacment of seal. If you look under the car look for a wet spot on the engine or its components then email me back and I may be able to help you narrow it down. I would not freak out to bad though monte carlos are easy to work on and should not cost much to fix it.

How do you replace the seal in the oil cooler n a vw 1992 gli i have the part im just wondering what type of gue you would use ect....


Remove oil filter, remove 27mm hex nut holding oil cooler. Slide oil cooler off shaft, no need to remove coolant hoses. clean contact surfaces and apply grease lightly to assist seal to seat better. No need fos sealant unless contact surfaces pitted and then you can use a gasket maker sealant.

Were is the oil filter located on a nissan sentra


hi, as far as i can remember its located on the passenger side bottom of engine facing the tire im sure this is where it is it can be difficult to get off and you may need to use oil filter remover to undo it as they tend to weld themselves on.
Once you have it off make sure all the old oil is drained from the car fully and when you put the new oil filter on make sure you run some clean engine oil around the rubber seal washer on the oil filter this ensures it seals correctly making sure that their are no oil leaks, so make sure this is done.

Dont over fill the vehicle and once you have filled it up run the vehicle for couple of minutes then let it stand for 5 min or so then check the oil as the oil filter holds about half a litre it will take the oil level down after the engine has run so double check and top up as needed.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

What is the part call that the oil filer screws on called. it seems to be leaking from there


Check that the oil filter if firmly screwed onto the engine. If not then drain the oil, undo the oil filter. Wipe the surface of the oil filter connector on the engine so its clean. Get a new oil filter and smear a small amount of oil on the rubber seal. Screw the filter into place making sure it is a tight seal. Re-fill the engine with the right amount of oil. You should be good to go. Check that the oil leak is coming from the filter before you start as it could be something more serious eleswhere like the head.
