I have an oil leak from the oil filter -
Answer 1
The oil filter gasket is built into the oil filter, just replace the filter and you should be fine if this is where its leaking at -
Comment 1
and oil NOT grease on the new filter o-ring and only hand tighten it. WHEN spin-on filters are installed properly and serviced on a regular basis ,under normal conditions you should NOT need a filter wrench to remove it.ALSO would be good idea to completely clean area around filter mount so you have a better chance of see where the leak is really coming from if it's not the filter ( is the pressure sending unit right above the filter on this engine?...just some random thougts ...randomly . good luck. -
