That's obvious.

Wrong adapter
Worn or wrong gasket between adapter and block
Wrong mounting threaded nipple or adapter is bottoming out on thread, before gasket gets tight.

SOURCE: Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter

If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.

It's not easy to get at. There is a gasket in there. I've done a few of these. It's called an oil filter adapter gasket.

SOURCE: 94 jeep cherokee 4ltr. Leak at oil filter adapter

It is very hard to turn, but it will come loose, a cut off allen wrench attached to a pipe works great, as there is no clearance to do it any other way. Have at it cause the allen bolt is pretty hefty.

It seems that you have a bad oil filter adapter seal. You can usually pick one up at your local parts store, if not, they may have to order it. To change the seal you must first remove the lines close to block and the you shoul be able to unscrew the oil cooler adapter from the block, may require an allen wrench to loosen. Then you should replace the seal or gasket inbetween the block and the cooler adapter and then reinstall the adapter, reconnect the lines. Be sure to catch the oil in a clean container so you can reuse it to pour back into the block, check the oil level and if at a safe range start the vehicle and check for leaks. If no leaks you should be ready to drive at will.

Make sure the seal from the old filter is not still stuck on the housing. If it is it will leak for sure. I always smear some oil on the new filter seal before putting it on. I also fill the new filter with oil.

Looks like the oil is leaking out right above the


oil filter screws onto an adapter housing which also has the pressure sending unit on it (above oil filter). This adapter housing bolts to the block with 3 bolts. if oil appears to be leaking from where the adapter housing meets the block (especially at the rear side of engine near bottom), then you need to replace the siamese o-rings between the adapter housing and the block ($12 part at dealer). remove lowest 12mm bolt and loosen top 2 12 mm bolts(top 2 bolts won't come out unless you drop the engine down, but loosening 1 inch is all you need), replace o-rings and retighten bolts. be careful not to get dirt/grit between block and adapter. just finished doing this to son's 95 2.7 v6 which was leaving an 8" puddle of oil after idling for only 1 minute-worked perfect

Oil leak near the oil filter and sending unit.


I am an "x" mechanic and had the same problem with my 94 jeep grand.

This is an adapter block that connects to you engine. The chrysler designer didn't leave enough room to put on an oil filter so the put a 90 deg bracket on to miss the frame.

At the end of this adapter you will see a ,large looking bolt with a star insert. This is called a torx.
I will have to look tonight but my memory is saying it is a 20x torx. The problem is the std torx socket is to long. 2-3" you only have 1-1/2" to get torx and ratchet between frame and adapter. I modified a std torx to be shorter. You insert into a 3/8 ratchet and put a small pipe on ratchet. This give more leverage. This torx bolt is very tight.

It is easer to remove from the bottom of car. Once it is loose you can remove oil filter first before doing or just leave oilf filter on the bracket. be shore to dump out oil before remounting bracket. There are two o'rings between engine and bracket. From the heat crack making the oil filter look like it is leaking. My engine starter was always wet with oil. After I replaced the o'rings it has never leaked again. I also saw oil leaking from my oil switch. I replaced it also. The chrysler dealer had the o'rings apprx $3.00. 1 large and one small for bolt I bought the oil sensor from Salvo's $15.00

Or you need to take to dealer.

Yes you are not crazy!. It is really leaking there.
