I can not see where the leak is comming from. It looks like it is near the oil filter. Only leaks when engin is running.
The filter was changed and the leak is still there. Is the pressure switch located above the filter connection?
Looked a little closer. appears to be leaking at the flange beween the cast and the filter's thin metal adapter box
Ok, there is a o-ring seal OR a gasket between the adapter and engine block. It is a little more than the avg. diy'er needs to attempt.
Didn't find what you were looking for?
