Contact NAPA Auto parts for a packet of gaskets and O rings for about $3.50. Auto Zone and O'Reilly's don't stock it. The real problem is removing the adapter to get to the gasket and O rings to replace them. It's a tight fit on my '91 Chevy Blazer.
my understanding is there is an "o" ring on the adapter where it contacts the block. once this ring becomes damaged, it's you're either gonna need to replace it or keep filling with oil!!
Check to make sure the old rubber gasket from the old oil filter was not left on the adapter before the new filter was installed
Which filter housing? Air filter, oil filter, fuel filter?
If water is leaking from the cabin air filter on a Buick Century then the seal must be replaced. Replacing the seal requires removing the glove box to reach the cabin filter. Once done, the seal can safely be replaced.
My understanding is that it is not the oil filter housing leaking, that can be verified with a $2.00 replacement seal, and replaced by owner with a bit of ability, and tools, but it is more likely the timing chain cover that is leaking, with an estimated cost to repair of around $700, and that is mostly due to the shop labor for just getting to it.
What Oil filter adaptor?? Please elaborate. To remove the oil filter just unscrew it.
oil leaking out of the muffer and the air filter oil leaking out of the muffer and the air filter oil leaking out of the muffer and the air filter oil leaking out of the muffer and the air filter
check that the O ring was replaced when oil filter was changed. id O ring is good and filter is tight, and housing still leaking, replace filter housing
Yes, if it is leaking or if when it was replaced, oil leaked onto the exhaust or exhaust manifold.
If you look at the bottom of the adaptor where the oil filter is you will see 2 bolt heads. I think they are 10mms remove them and pull the adaptor down and replace the gasket / o-ring. You may want to remove the oil filter first. Don't worry about the oil cooler lines, you can pull the adaptor down enough to fix.
A leaking gasket, a leaking filter, or a leaking drain plug....
Gas is leaking into your oil pan. If the head gasket is leaking, it needs to be replaced. While the cylinder head is off, look for a cracked piston or worn rings which may cause gas to leak into the oil pan. If the gasket has been replaced and you had no piston damage or bad rings, then change the oil and filter.
You do not clean any fuel filter you just replace it. If it has a filter in the tank it is a permanent filter that is only replaced when the pump is replaced.
Specifically where is it leaking? At the gasket? Replace gasket.
Replace the part it is leaking from.
replace the housing o ring
Confused by what part you mean by the filter top and the selector valve housing. If you mean between the filter body and the filter head, it means you need to replace the gasket between the two. Simply remove the filter head and inspect the gasket that sits between the filter and the filter head. If there are any tears or several nicks in it, go to a pool store and just pick up a new one. If you mean the filter head is leaking, it most likely means the spider gasket is leaking and needs to be replaced
my oil filter housing is leaking what should i do?
The fuel filter is a permanent filter located inside the fuel tank. It is only replaced when the pump is replaced.
The Honeywell filter should be replaced every 8- 12 months or as needed.
the filter is built into the power steering reservoir . the filter cant be replaced separately . the reservoir itself should be replaced.
First U check ABOVE the filter 2 b sure the intake manifold & Valve covers aren't Leaking.. then U check 2 c if the mounting surface is flat & the threaded connector is tight & if that doesn't work U might need a new filter If after checking above, the filter, as Marv pointed out, you find that it is indeed the filter that is leaking, replace the filter. Clean the mounting surface throughly, oil the filter gasket, and tighten the filter 3/4 turn after it touches the mounting surface. No more, no less! A leaking filter is almost always caused by incorrect installation.
I assume you are working on a 350 Chevrolet small block with the factory GM oil to water cooler in the radiator? Why remove the oil cooler? With the engine cold, remove the oil filter from the adapter. Remove the lines from the remote cooler adaptor first. Then look up into the cavity (above where the oil filter screws on) and you will see two bolts. Remove these two bolts and the adaptor will come off. Obtain a regular GM (Chevrolet small block) oil filter adaptor from any non-oil cooler application with the bolts. There are a million places to get these. Bolt the new adaptor in place, screw on a new oil filter and off you go. The factory filter seals against the flat surface of the engine block and the filter now screws onto the oil filter adaptor instead of the cooler adaptor. You may want to remove the oil lines to the radiator and plug the oil cooler openings in the radiator. If the oil cooler is already or begins to leak you will loose coolant through the cooler openings. email@example.com
Remove the old filter. Replace it with a new filter. Before installing the new filter wipe the mounting surface clean and apply a coat of oil to the new oil filter's gasket. Spin on the filter and tighten it 3/4 turn after it makes contact with the mounting surface. No, more and no less. If you still see oil leaking from the filter then look above the filter for the leak. Possibly valve cover is leaking.
Use the Rarebits4classics 471CR adaptor kit with Z93 or GFE150 filter.

You find them both and look see if they are leaking.
