Oil leak on filter housing, sound familiar?
I've got an oil leak which since putting in fully synth oil has got worse.
The drip is coming from the bottom of the oil filter housing but it appears to be finding its way there from some other area. Wipe it off and it reappears soon after.
Its not the filter seal as that is lower then where the oil drip is.
I've read on here that the heat exchanger / filter housings can fail on twin sparks but that seems to point towards a coolant leak rather than an oil leak.
The only thing I can think of is the gasket between the heat exchanger and the block has failed.
Anyone else seen an oil leak develop here?
