Whipe all the area around cleen, fill the oil level, start the engine and see where is leeking.
If its oil filter gascet leeking, change the oilfilter, clean all htat area and see if it still leeks.

If leek is somewhere else, you may consider asking for help in car service.

Oil leak from oil filter housing


Hello,
  1. First check and make sure the filter is not lose.
  2. You might want to pull the oil filter and check to see if the gasket has spit or if more than one was accidentally put on during the last oil change,
  3. Should that check out there then, with the oil filter off, take and try to rotate the housing itself a bit. Just see if there is some movement. If there is then there is a nut that you can tighten up. It the nut will be on the same bolt shaft that the oil filter screws onto. Sometimes when taking off a really stuck filter the housing can come loose.
  4. There are also two hoses attached to the oil filter housing. Make sure they have not ruptured or that the clap has not failed.

A ton of pressure goes through the oil filter housing. You don't want to drive the vehicle until this is fixed because all your oil can leak out rather quick and seize your engine. Regards, Tony

How do you get the oil cooler line loose at the filter housing to replace the o ring on that line on 4x4 1996 gmc k1500


there should be 1 nut and stud holding the lines to the housing. I would suggest replacing the upper o-ring for the oil filter adapter at the same time. The oil cooler hoses are also prone to leak, if so, you want to replace evreything while you are there.
