Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
It is the part that the oil filter screws onto. I am leaking where this attaches to the engine block. It seeps and spews when pressure builds in the engine so I am loosing a lot of oil daily.
Easy fix I just did. (replacing the oil filter adapter gasket which is a common leak). Remove the air cleaner tube and housing. Release the tension on the belt. Remove the two front bolts on the air compressor. They are nuts but the stud will come out too which is fine. Under the car loosen the third air compressor bolt. This will give you enough room to loosen the hidden bolt on the oil filter adapter. It only needs to be loosened as the adapter is slotted there. Remove the other two bolts on the oil filter adapter and remove. Replace the gasket and install.

The gasket should just fit onto the screw and then you just install the oil fiter. are you absolutely sure thats where the oil is coming from. there is an oil level sensor located above the starter that can come loose. it will cause the oil to pour out everywhere and may look like its coming from the oil filter. the part is about $10 and only takes a few minutes to install...if you have access to a lift otherwise it will take a little longer seeing as how you have to jack up the car etc.
