Hello! The oil pressure is extremely high...The most probably cause is a plugged Positive Crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve...Replace the PCV valve and the hose that connects it to the intake..It is located in the passenger side valve cover....See photo below...Guru..............Saailer

Oil pressure so high at pump it blows out oil filter gasket and sprays all over.

This rarely occurs, and when it does, it usually occurs because of a "double gasket" condition. That is where the old filter gasket remains stuck to the block and the new filter is screwed onto it, resulting in a double thick gasket that is not capable of handling the pressure. Many times these leak from the outset, but if not, they fail soon after.

Engine oil is leaking and i dont know from where

Check the gasket that is around the oil filter cap. I've been having the same problem for about 2 weeks now I've changed the gasket about 3 times and still the oil leaks from that spot. My next move is to replace the cap and see if that works. Good Luck

I am seeing small drops of oil under my car. I had the oil changed and they replaced the small gasket where the oil filter goes but does not help. Also i can smell the oil from time to time. Would that...

Oil can leak of anywhere under car. You need to look at everything to determine where oil is coming from. Could be valve cover gasket, could be a seal, could be oil pan gasket, could be loose oil filter, etc. You have to look for area with wet looking oil, and start with that.

Driving home from work I started to smell and see smoke in cab

If you have recently changed or had the oil changed I would suspect a bad filter or the old oil filter gasket still on the filter boss and a new filter with an additional gasket installed on top of the old gasket. Usually in a short time the old filter gasket will blow out causing a massive oil leak. To locate the leak fill the engine back to the full mark with oil and start it and look for the leak.

I have a 99 Beetle 2.0 every time I have the oil changed it leaks oil about a quarter size every day. What could this be

You say that every time you have the oil changed it leaks, but you don't say for how long. I am going to approch this from two diffrent angles, the first being that the leak only lasts for a day or two after the change, in this case I would say that what you are seeing is what got spilled, most likely from the filter being removed, or something else during the servicing. On the other hand if this drip continues untill the next oil change, I would recomend that the drain plug gasket is also changed at next oil change.

Oil Leak

Take the car to a car wash and power wash the engine. Do this ONLY with a cold engine. And be prepared to have problems with it starting as water get's into the electrical components. Take some WD-40 with you to spray inside distributor caps, on spark wiring, etc. to get the engine running again.

Then check the engine weekly to see where the oil is coming from.

2006 hyundai sonata oil filter leak

I finally figured this out. I was putting the o-ring on incorrectly. I actually had two o-rings installed.
The o-ring should not be visible when it is tightened down. The plastic should be touching the metal housing. The o-ring sits inside the housing, right above the threads, but not at the top. Two pictures attached._388.jpg
