If your 87 Dodge Colt has an oil leak and oil is dripping off the oil filter and hitting the front left tire how can it be fixed?

Remove the oil filter, clean the mounting surface throughly, oil the gasket on the new filter, installed the filter and ONLY tighten it 3/4 turn after it makes contact with the surface. It was installed incorrectly and that is why it is leaking. Either the gasket was not oiled or it is too loose or too tight. Any of these conditions will cause it too leak. If this does not correct the situation, look above the filter to see where the oil is coming from.

Replace the oil filter and make sure tha the old gasket is properly removed and a new (oiled with clean oil) is palced and then properly tightened oil filter is put on. Make sure that the oil level is also fine thereafter.

A dodge dealership is a great place to get a dodge vehicle fixed, as they know the cars and trucks better than any other repair shop. You can be sure you are getting the right parts for your vehicle at a dealership.

Filter is fixed on the head of flashlight to change light color. If you use red filter, the beam will be in red light.
