    assuming you have the oil/water cooler.

    there are 2 things to try.

    1: take the oil filter off and see if the stud that it threads onto is loose. tighten as needed.

    2: remove the oil cooler and take an oil filter Oring and replace the ring that goes between the oil filter housing and the cooler.

    Its the oil filter adapter you got to take it off and put a new seal on it just use a seal off another oil filter it works fine dont drive it around like that alot of these cars have blown up from oil leaking out of that seal. I think its a 22mm or 24mm!!

    I know one time I took the filter off and the seal came off the old filter ,then I put the new filter on without knowing it.So there was two filter seals on the car. It leaked till I figured out what happened.:ohdamn:

    The good news was the tank was bone dry. I think the guy drained it before he parked it.
