Replace the o-ring that keeps the oil from leaking from the housing to the engine block. A lot of work.

1996 couger oil filter housing is leaking


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.

WHY DOES RHE THE BMW V8 OIL FILTER HOUSING LEAK


Either the filter isn't screwed all way in or there is dirt on the sealing surface that prevents a complete seal - take the filter out and clean everything in sight.

You really cannot mis it. It is at the front of the engine, top center. Black can-shaped housing. Unscrew the top of the housing and replace the paper element inside.

1986 528E when engine is hot and is under 2000 revs the oil light comes on


Hi leslieb,
First thing, we need more imfo? Does the engine make any sounds that it wasn't making before. What condition is the engine oil and when did you last change it? What engine oil are you using in you engine and what engine type is it?

I suggest you check the oil pressure sender unit switch, which you'll find in close proximity to the oil filter housing. There is a good chance that it's defective....a replacement may fix the problem....If not then you;re most probably in for an engine re-build.

Let us know how you get on?

Regards

How do I change oil filter cartridge on 1995 BMW 325is?


I would first clean up the oil around the housing with brake cleaner. Take the car for a quick run and see where the oil is coming from.

If the housing looks good, then simply take the cap off of the oil filter housing. Remove the existing filter and discard the o-rings. Make sure you lubricate the new o-rings with some oil before installation. This could be why it is leaking now. It may have been overlooked.

Once the o-ring is seated drop in the new filter and replace the housing cap. Tighten the cap to 18 ft lbs. Start the engine, making sure the warning light goes out, showing you have oil pressure.

If your oil is that new then I would not bother with a changeover.

I hope this helps. It is an easy filter to change. BMW doesn't make too many things easy.

Good luck
