Anyone else suffering from an oil leak around the oil filter housing?
2000 Ford Ranger 4.0 V6, 167,xxx miles, dripping above and behind oil filter. Loses about a half quart every 5,000 miles using 5W30 Mobil One. Does the oil filter housing separate from the block and/or have a gasket that may be leaking?
some do,seperate,just be sure the old filter rubber ring is not stuck to it befor replaceing the filter.you may want to replace the valve cover gaskets,may be leaking
Thanx Papa;, I did that rubber ring number about 8 years ago...had oil everywhere! I always check since that mishap occurred. I will check the valve cover...might have to replace a gasket or just tighten the bolt a tad...thanx again.
