ON CHEVY V-6, it leaks from the oil filter adapter which mounts to the engine block, right behind the A/C compressor (which must be removed to perform the fix) Really a tight spot to work in. The new replacement "oil filter adapter gasket" has the o-ring seal mounted on stamped metal (expensive $28). Put the car on good jack-stands. Remove the front tires for room to navigate. Remove the oil filter. Remove the A/C compressor. Now you can access the 1/2" hex hd. screw; the stud with the 1/2" nut; and the blind screw on the top side of the adapter. The oil pressure sensor sending unit is attached to the adapter - it does NOT have to be unscrewed, unless it needs to be replaced also. I had previously replaced it thinking this was where the oil leak was coming from, but it wasn't (unfortunately). Go get a case of beer and put it on ice, because your going to need it to celebrate and regain your sanity, once you've replaced the parts and completed the job with no leaks successfully.

Oil leaks can be a pain to locate so I will give you a few tricks I've picked up along the way for locating oil leaks. Start by cleaning/degreasing the area. You want to remove as much of the old residue as possible. Then you can do several things from here.

1. Purchase and oil dye additive (this additive makes the oil glow when a black light i shined on it) and run the engine for a little while then re-inspect with black light to find locations where dye is concentrated.

2. After cleaning, spray the are that you suspect the leak is coming from with a spray on type foot powder(powder sprays on white providing an excellent contrast to trace leak). Run the engine and follow the oil trail to source of leak

SOURCE: oil leak above oil filter

sounds like the gasket off the old oil filter is stuck on the engine side mating surface. Take the filter off and check for a "double gasket"

I have a oil over top of oil filter what could it be


I would consider replacing the oil filter again .
Look so you do not live the old oil filter rubber gasket stuck to the engine .
I had this happening to me where I installed a new filter and the rubber gasket was not taken out from the old filter .
With 2 rubber gaskets the filter will let the oil leak by .
If this is not the case look carefully where the leak originates .
Sometimes it is from the valve cover gaskets ...etc.But the leak is more probably that is above the point you can see as it always oil flows down the engine .
Good luck.
Merry Christmas .

HAVE A OIL LEAK COMING FROM ABOVE THE OIL FILTER.


Has the oil filter just been replaced? Sometimes the old gasket sticks to the mounting area, causing leakage if the new filter is installed on top of it. It is also possible the gasket was for some reason missing on a new filter. Let me know if this is not the cause, I'll try to help further.

OIL LEAK COMING CLOSE TO THE OIL FILTER


if you had recently done or had an oil change done sometimes the gasket from the old oil filter sticks to the block. when you install the new oil filter it ends up with 2 gaskets and leaks around the base where filter meets oil cooler. another posability is the oil pressure sending unit is mounted just above the filter.

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.
