If you are loosing antifreeze then it could be the head gasket or intake gasket. I cant remember right of hand where the oil filter is located on that car, but if it is on the passengerside it could be the evaporator drain tube coming from the a/c.

Oil leaking heavy just above oil filter ,passenger side 2002 crv ,not coming from head oil leaking heavy passenger side above oil filter, not coming from head


If it is leaking at the oil filter the previous rubber gasket may have stuck to the block. When the new oil filter was installed then the gasket was doubled and will leak.

Replacing oil pressure sensor(oil sender unit) i saw it licking oil above oil filter


It is really hard to get to, but really easy to change.

Unhook the battery cable so you don't blow the new one when you install it. Depending on the location, you may have to remove the oil filter to be able to access the sensor.

Unplug the wire off the end of the sensor, slip a socket onto the old sensor, and unscrew it like you would a spark plug. Before you out the new sensor in make sure it has Teflon tape on the threads. I always a little more than what comes with it.

Screw in the new sensor "hand tight" - then 1/4 to 1/2 turn past hand tight; do not over tighten. Plug the wire on the end. If you removed the oil filter, replace it with new one. Last step - replace the battery cable.

Leaking oil tahoe


The rear seal of the engine could have started to leak but a loose oil pan or damaged oil filter could be a factor.

I have a 1997 Chevy Suburban. Oil is leaking and dripping down the oil filter. The filter is tight. Do you know where it could be coming from? Also, my rear passenger's side signal/brake light is not...


the engine oil cooler lines are a common problem and they plug into the oil filter adaptor above the oil filter via quick connect fittings,as for your brake light check your ground wire first.

Hi my hyundai leaks a wee bit of oil into air filter and i have lost a cyclinder, could this be due to spark plug leads?


theres no possilble way oil can leak into the air filter as it is usually above the engine and it sucks in air not spit it out and oil doesnt go anywhere close to that, but that cylinder you lost is due to a cracked head gasket which is also why u would be leaking oil no idea how it got in your air filter tho usually the crack in the gasket will leak water into your oil so if you drain your sump there should be water in it unless its a minor crack if so you will be able to repair it with as little as spending 20 bucks

1996 Honda Accord 2.7L/V6 oil leak near oil filter/oil switch


my car was doing the exact same thing and i spent about 18 hrs total trying to figure out. if you remove the oil filter, you will notice that the "bracket" that the oil filter attaches to is removable. remove the ENTIRE oil filter assembly. there is a bolt almost behind the crank pulley, its tricky to get to but you can get to it with a 1/4 in drive, swivel, and extension, i do believe it was a 10-12 mm socket (MUST BE ^POINT SHORT WELL) the top left bolt on the assembly you will notice that you can not get out. that is fine, take the rest of the bolts out and let the assembly hang from that bolt, BUT the bolt must me loosend all of the way to achive play in it. take a small screw driver and "break" the seal on the assembly. you will notice 2 holes. around those two holes is a single gasket. even the smallest crack will aloow oil to drip. my car was using about a gallon of oil every ten miles, so you can imagine how much oil i when through, replace the gasket. You can not get the rubber gasket ANYWHERE except a honda dealer. replace. put it together and you all set.

BASIC STEPS: RAISE PASSENGER SIDE.
REMOVE TIRE
REMOVE OIL FILTER
REMOVER ASSEMBLY
REMOVE GASKET
AND REPEAT BACKWARDS FOR INSTALLATION

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.

Water leak


This may be a freeze plug at the back of the engine, have a pressure test run and have it put on a rack to ID the source of the leak.
