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.

Leaking oil around the oil filter. is there a special filter to use on this car? I bought it used and it didn't start leaking until i changed the oil myself. and it only leaks when it is running


Oh, one should make sure that the old rubber gasket didn't get stuck on the engine block where the filter is. Sometimes, people change their own oil and don't look at the old filter they took off, to see if the gasket came off and stuck to the engine block.

In that case, the new filter has a gasket, and the old gasket is stuck to the block, and you have two gaskets stuck together, which will leak.

This is a common mistake to happen on any car.

Good luck on this repair.

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 leaking around or near the oil filter


Might have to take the filter off wipe the O-ring thats on the filter clean and the area where the filter will be going on to the block. Probably has some dirt where the filter seats on the block.

Oil leak


If it's leaking from the oil filter spacer.( the 2 inch metal ring that attaches to your block, and has two rubber hoses coming out of it, and your oil filter attaches to) There is an o-ring between the spacer and the block. Take off your oil filter, remove the oil filter stud with 1 3/16" socket( or metric equivalent) and the spacer will come off. I found all the auto parts stores around me said that the o-ring was a dealer item. I bought a FRAM PH3387A oil filter and removed the o-ring on that. It fit perfectly, snug down your oil filter stud to specs, then install your oil filter. Double check that the oil filter is not double gasketed, and your are fixed!
