It's not easy to get at. There is a gasket in there. I've done a few of these. It's called an oil filter adapter gasket.

    1/4 inch drive and flex sockets. Also stubby wrenches work well.

    I think 4. I know one you have to wrench out from above.

Oil leak by the oil filter 94CAMRY


It is a V6? If so this is one of the very common oil leaks on Camry engines of that model, the others being the distributor shaft o-ring seal and on a V6, the rear bank cam cover gasket.

The oil filter spins onto an adapter which itself is bolted to the block. In time the o-ring seal to the block goes hard and leaks. It can be easily replaced.

Leaking where filter unit connects to block.


Oil filter adapter leaking ?, or bad gasket on oil filter, you can try tightening it, remove the oil filter and tighten the nut, i have never had any luck stopping the leak on either the adapter or filter with out changing the gasket/o ring, sorry with the information you supplied I can only guess.

I have a 1996 Chevy C1500 5.0L Vortec V8. I lost oil pressure and found water in the oil. Replaced oil and filter so we could start the engine again. Regained oil pressure, no noise, ran smooth, no bubbles...


next step is to remove the intake, you are on the right track, worse i ever found was a cracke block, but that was in a 61 t-bird which was repaired with jb weld ten yrs ago and still holding, but the intake gasket sounds right

Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter


If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.
