Purchase a Purolator oil filter PL14459 or Li4459. Advance Auto Parts sells this quality filter. Remove the old filter. Wipe the mounting surface clean and inspect it to see if there are cracks or anything else that could cause the filter to leak. Apply a thin coat of oil to the new filter gasket. Tighten the filter 3/4 turn after it contacts the mounting surface. No more than that. Too tight and it will leak. No oil on the gasket and it will leak. If you do this correctly there is no way the filter will leak. The leak is probably above the filter and is running down and dripping off the filter giving the impression the filter is leaking. I would suspect a leaking valve cover gasket.

Make sure you oil the rubber seal on the oil filter and tighten the oil filter 3/4 of a turn more after the seal is flush with the bracket.

SOURCE: Oil Leak

Take the car to a car wash and power wash the engine. Do this ONLY with a cold engine. And be prepared to have problems with it starting as water get's into the electrical components. Take some WD-40 with you to spray inside distributor caps, on spark wiring, etc. to get the engine running again.

Then check the engine weekly to see where the oil is coming from.

Are you sure you have the exact oil filter for your particular engine. Make sure the rubber gasket is set right on the oil filter groove. It should seal . also check around the filter . it could be something else leaking.

Take off your oil filter and replace it immediately. What happened was your oil seal fell off your oil filter when you took it off.

Good luck

If at filter it could be only what comes out (oil drip) when changing oil filter. If filter is good then use oil filter tighter tool to tighten the filter snugger. Make sure its not the oil bolt that is leaking, which could leave that pesky oil spots. Tighten it or replace oil bolt with new one.

My 1998 trailblazer has started leaking oil from filter area. what do I need to address first. engine was recently replaced.


Assume this is a 4.3-first, make sure the filter is on tight (it happens)-not knowing how bad the leak is, I would check to see if the oil pressure sender unit is there (that is usually close to where they locate them, and they do leak). If it seems to be coming from where the filter is spun onto the block, remove the filter and make sure the old gasket from the last filter did not get stuck onto the block, then the new filter got installed over top of it (it happens too). If these do not pan out, the oil filter adapter (housing that holds the oil filter) may need to be removed and the gasket replaced.

Oil leak above the oil filter no one can point the like


Oil leaks can be a pain to locate so I will give you a few tricks I've picked up along the way for locating oil leaks. Start by cleaning/degreasing the area. You want to remove as much of the old residue as possible. Then you can do several things from here.

1. Purchase and oil dye additive (this additive makes the oil glow when a black light i shined on it) and run the engine for a little while then re-inspect with black light to find locations where dye is concentrated.

2. After cleaning, spray the are that you suspect the leak is coming from with a spray on type foot powder(powder sprays on white providing an excellent contrast to trace leak). Run the engine and follow the oil trail to source of leak

I have a oil over top of oil filter what could it be


I would consider replacing the oil filter again .
Look so you do not live the old oil filter rubber gasket stuck to the engine .
I had this happening to me where I installed a new filter and the rubber gasket was not taken out from the old filter .
With 2 rubber gaskets the filter will let the oil leak by .
If this is not the case look carefully where the leak originates .
Sometimes it is from the valve cover gaskets ...etc.But the leak is more probably that is above the point you can see as it always oil flows down the engine .
Good luck.
Merry Christmas .

Oil leak from oil filter


There is an "O" ring between the Oil filter housing and the adapter that will leak as well. Remove the oil filter and check inside of the housing for a large nut. Remove the nut and separate the adapter from the housing. Check the "o" ring between them and replace with new "o" ring. That's where mine is leaking and I've read a couple of others that had the same problem. The old ring started out "round" and has, over time, become flat. The new ring should start out with a flatter cross section that will seal better. Good luck! (Easy Fix, but finding the "o" ring may be a challenge. Check for the ring at the Honda Dealer as the Passport is the same basic vehicle.) Do it during the next oil change........
