Hi friends

I have an oil liking from ( seems to me ) oil filter housing from sides which looks on oil presure switch. Mechanic advise that this a time to change gasket in side of the housing. Does any body know if it is correct.


Thank you for any reply

RKhoubain is defiantly right about oiling the o-ring before installing it. i have seen the tear when the are installed if they aren't lubed, then you really have a mess on your hands (somtimes literally) after you atrt the car and find out. if it is just a little seepage it could just be from past oil changes though. sometimes the oil can drip down the sides when the filter is taken out and if it isn't all wiped off it can collect dirt and look like a leak. you should change the o-ring everytime you change the filter.
