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?
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.
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.
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
Yes, if it is leaking or if when it was replaced, oil leaked onto the exhaust or exhaust manifold.
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
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....
Replace the part it is leaking from.
Specifically where is it leaking? At the gasket? Replace gasket.
replace the housing o ring
