Engine oil is flowing out of the oil filter housing

The oil filter housing gasket needs to be replaced. You'll need a E10 TORX swivel socket to remove the 3 mounting bolts. Put plenty of rags underneath the housing cuz when you pull the filter housing away from the motor, some oil WILL spill! When re-installing the 3 bolts, torque each bolt to 16 ft lbs.
