my oil filter housing is leaking what should i do?
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
replace the housing o ring
You find them both and look see if they are leaking.
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.

Sometimes the old oil filter gasket remains stuck to the filter housing when replacing the old oil filter. Remove the new filter and check to see if that happened. If not, I would suspect the new oil filter or gasket is faulty.
Here are a few reasons for oil to spray from the filter area:The gasket from the old filter was stuck on the oil filter housing and was not removed before the new filter was installed.The new filters gasket is not seated correctly on the oil filter housing.No Oil filter gasket was installed with the new oil filter.Defective Oil Filter and/or Gasket.Oil Filter Housing came lose from the engine block or mounting surface.
inside the oil filter housing
The filter is in a filter housing. Remove the plug in the bottom of the housing. The filter housing is then loosened using a specific wrench for that housing type.
take the filter off then unscrew the bolt at the oil filter housing
try tightening the filter a little more. if that fails, you probably need new filter O ring
The oil filter may be lose.
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.
Possible, but more likely a leaking oil filter or valve cover
could it be from oil line from oil cooling canister
depending on your vehicle, the housing is whear your oil filter screws into. remove oil filter and thi should reveal 3 or 4 bolts in the side of housing remove bolts should come off no problems replace seal behind housing reverse process
Right above the oil filter on the oil filter housing.
It is called the oil filter housing.
Take the filter off and look where it mounts onto the motor to make sure there is not an old gasket stuck to it and if there is take it off and then put on a new oil filter hand tight, be sure to put oil around the gasket on the new filter before you install it.
A leaking gasket, a leaking filter, or a leaking drain plug....
The oil filter housing is located on the front of the engine cases. It has a single bolt that attaches the housing to the engine. The housing itself is finned for cooling.
