Question about 1998 Honda Civic
I just installed it and it leaks a tiny bit of gas out of the top just under the head of the bolt. is that because of a bad filter, washers in the wrong place, or what?? please help me!
Are you using new copper washers supplied with the filter? (A Civic filter requires four washers, one on each side of each pipe connection). Used washers are already crushed and so require more torque to seal. Usually just tightening the hex fitting more will make the seal.
Always use two wrenches, one to keep the filter body from turning while you torque the retaining fitting against the connection pipe and crush washers.
