Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 Lincoln Town Car and I was told that I have a leak from my oil filter "housing". When I get my oil and filter change does that stop the leakage?

1 Answer

You can replace the gasket behind it. If the threads are worn, you may want to just replace the whole housing.
