Tighten the filter. If it can't be stopped, replace the filter.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IF THE IS ENGINE LEAK


I'm presuming an oil leak?

Check around the sump where it bolts to the bottom end. Visually inspect the sump for holes (altho you would be losing oil pretty severly if there is). Check around the oil filter, might not be sealed right.

One way to narrow the leak location is get a sheet of card and put it on the ground under the engine bay overnight. It should show you where the oil is dripping from or what its dripping off.

Also Accents have a habbit of dropping oil level very quickly when they are getting close to requiring an oil top up.

Try wiping the engine off in that area with some rags, then watch for where the oil leak comes from. If it's the filter seal, you should see oil on the filter dripping off.

1992 Silverado K1500 Blazer pissing out oil around oil filter adapter...Want my truck back please help


Hoses going to filter adapter are bad about leaking, and factory parts are expensive. If you carefully cut the crimp fittings off, you can use oil remote cooler type hose and clamps to fix it.

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil in little spots on the ground when its parked, where could it be leaking from and how can i fix it?


You cannot repair the leak until you determine where it is leaking. More than likely it is leaking from the oil filter, oil pressure sending unit, or valve cover gasket. Check around the oil filter for a leaks and if you see oil on the filter then replace it. Check the oil pressure sending unit and if it is leaking replace it. Wipe all the oil off the bottom of the engine and any other place you see oil. Now place newspapers on the floor under the car and then start the engine and let it run for about 10 minutes and then shut down. Wait overnight and you can see where the leak is coming from.

Icicle are forming around icemaker port inside of freezer compartment drips seem to come from around inmaker feed water area.


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
