Oil leak from oil filter housing

Your oil filter is too tight,causing the rubber gasket to tork and not seal,I've done it on my 85 nissan 720.Everytime I do a oil change,I have to make sure I don't over tighten filter.Loosen a little bit,wipe all oil up so you will know if it's fixed.You may have to replace filter if gasket is messed up from overtightening.

Bought a 2005 honda vtx 1300 noticed oil leaking from the head at the bottom of the fake fins it only has 2675 mile on it.

You need a gasket. Don't we be the bearer of bad news, but I think you have to drop the engine, one that bike to get to that gasket about 750 dollars you could try to stop leak. Just make sure it's good quality

Moisture showing at the rear of odd numbered valve cover...and milky looking condensation in the valve cover breather...there is no dipstick for this engine...the car doesn't run hotter than 180 and I...

The FIRST thing you need to do is get a dipstick. The condensation in the valve cover is most likely from moisture getting drawn into the engine through the dipstick tube. Not to mention that it is also drawing unfiltered air in that can mess with your air-fuel ratio and act like sandpaper on your internal engine parts.

Also, if you are afraid that you may have water in your oil, you can check for water in the oil by taking the oil pan drain plug out.

Blown head gaskets don't make the engine run cold, they make them run HOT! (Over 240)

Blown head gaskets also do not make things come out of the valve cover. The valve cover is ABOVE the head gasket. Gravity makes liquids run downhill. You most likely just need to fix an oil leak at the valve cover.

Have a 20001 kdx 220. need to know fuel oil ratio

40:1 is generally the ratio for this bike, as long as it was jetted correctly for that ratio and hasn't been messed with.

If you don't know the bike's history, check your silencer isn't ejecting any excess partially burned oil and there's not excessive smoke, also check the spark plug to see how its burning. It should be chocolate brown.

I just changed the alternator, the water pump, the thermostat and the serpentine belt in my 1990 Jeep cherokee, 4.0L in-line 6 cyl. However, my truck is still overheating, WHY?

After all said and done,its a bit pertubbing that your car is still overheating.
However,there is still a particular component which if you don't replace,all the other components you replaced won't be of great importance.
I'll suggest you replace the rubber gasket which lies in between the engine compartment and the radiator, When this component is weak,the water mixes with the oil in the engine compartment,hence the oil looses its viscousity easily thereby it looses its ability to absorb heat which makes the engine to overheat automatically.

Thank you for using fixya.

1991 toyota pickup, overheating problem, there is water that I know getting into the oil. I just bought a new head and gasket plus the timing cover gasket as well. ran it today and still blowing water in...

Coolant or water in the oil can be from a head gasket leak, but it can also be an intake manifold gasket or a crack in the block or head etc. I would begin by removing the spark-plugs and then pressurizing the cooling system and checking each cylinder for signs of coolant entering them. If the cylinders stay dry and coolant goes into the oil during the test you most likely have an intake gasket that's leaking. Don't run thee engine with coolant in the oil or you'll have catastrophic damage!
