You're probably talking about a leak from the oil filter housing. If it is leaking you'll need to replace it. Otherwise - check your oil filter and where it mates on the housing and make sure you have a good seal with no extra gasket material stuck in the way.

Oil pressure gauge goes up to 80 pounds


80 lbs is good. It's more like around 50, it's probably the oil sending unit. Take a look at it aand make sure it in't leaking. If there is any oil covering it and none coming from above it is leaking. I don't know engine size, but they are usually located around the oil filter.

Oil and Coolant leak of about 11/2 quarts coolant - 1/2 quart oil per night Leak 1 (Coolant) Appears to be coming from the radiator bottom right corner. Leak 2 (oil) Appears to be coming from the engine...


The passenger right side of the car doesn't have any flanges for cooling system, if that's correct then your radiator has a leak or puncture.

The driver side of vehicle has both the in and out flanges for the radiator. Very common to see leak at the drain valve leaking (not closed tightly). In the same area would be bottom flange of radiator which the composite flange is degrading and causing the leak.

The middle part of the bottom engine compartment is where your oil/coolant cooler assembly just above the oil filter. A loose oil filter could be the cause 95% of the time and 5% would be a bad o-ring from the oil cooler to the oil filter flange.

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.

Probably the housing for the filter? Have you tried tightening the bolts on the housing?
