1993 Chevy 1500 w/ 5.7 liter oil filter housing leak

Showing 2 out of 6 Posts | Show 4 Hidden Posts
Question From mrcurti on 1993 Chevy 1500 w/ 5.7 liter oil filter housing leak

I have a serious oil leak that appears to be coming from above the oil filter housing. I don't see an apparent way to remove it, but also have not removed the oil filter either. Also once removed, how hard will the repair be? Can any one help?

Response From sbake58

Does it have the remote filter with oil lines attached to the housing on the engine? If so, there is a gasket between the housing and block which can harden and leak. If it's the standard mount, there are two bolts attaching it to the block which can loosen and allow it to leak in the same manner.

Response From pjstanley Top Rated Answer

There is a gasket where the oil filter attaches. My 96 GMC had the same problem. We thought it was the front main leaking. It poured oil. We had the front main completely redone. While fixing the front main, the oil filter gasket was noticed and replaced. It turned out to not be the front main. The gasket was replaced and no oil leak since.

Response From shads

I had the same problem a few years ago with my '93 Chevy. There are a couple of gaskets on the mating surfaces of the housing. When I replaced the gaskets on mine, the old ones crumbled in my hands. I guess with all the heat and oil exsposure over the years. If I remember correctly there are two bolts that hold the housing in place, remove the bolts, pull off the housing, clean off the old gasket material, replace the gaskets and reinstall with a new oil filter. I would not recommend using gasket maker, get the real gaskets. Mine hasn't leaked since. Pretty easy but messy job to do.

Response From fatcat128

Try taking off the filter and tightning the bolts inside of the "housing" might not work but it is worth a try.

Response From tomsmith

i've never heard of an oil filter housing. but from what you've said, you might want to take off the oil filter and see if it is double gasketed(left the old O-ring on there from the last time the filter was changed.) it happens more than one would think, i used to work at an instant oil change place, and would see 5 or 6 a week. also, when you change the filter, lightly coat the O-ring with fresh oil. might also want to check and see if your valve covers are leaking.

oil pressure

Question From EvilD55 on oil pressure

Hello there, i have a 99 GMC Jimmy. Its a V6, but im not sure of engine size, 4.3 maybe, and its got 345km on it. i have noticed the oil pressure fluctuating once it gets hot, and i was wondering if that was normal. i dont recall seeing that before and i recently overheated due to punctured hose. when i start the car the gauge reads somewhere between half and three quarter, as the oil warms the gauge will drop to one quarter mark at idle and increase with engine speed up to its original starting position. Get back to me whin you can and thanks in advance :)

Response From olds40316mm Top Rated Answer

changed your oil & filter lately
above the oil filter is an aluminium part that the oil filter screws on
take it off and see if the bypass (a phenic disc and spring is stuck open)
put a mechanical oil pressure on it . It could just be a faulty sending unit
that is reading low on a count of the heat .
Good Luck

Response From EvilD55

(on edit - content deleted. Person can't read prior post quite apparently)

Response From nickwarner

olds40316, this one is two months back. Please feel free to read archived posts, but limit your responses to ones that have been active in the last week or two. When you post to an old thread, the original poster and everyone else who posted to that thread gets a notice in their email of a new post reply. I wastes a lot of time. You're new here and didn't know, so in the future please bear that in mind.

Response From re-tired

If you indeed have over 300k on this motor , you have got your moneys worth out of it . More than likely it loosing pressure at mains, rods and cam bearings . Going to a 10w40 may buy a little time .

Response From Hammer Time

The conversion is 215K miles but that is still a lot of miles and having some oil pressure issues wouldn't be a surprise. It's too late for any sort of "patch" repairs.

LOw oil pressure when cold

Showing 2 out of 3 Posts | Show 1 Hidden Posts
Question From maize21 on LOw oil pressure when cold

I have a 2006 GMC 2500 Savannah van with a 4.8 V-8 engine; 385K miles (almost all highway miles). This engine has been very well maintained, uses no oil; and runs and sounds as good as when it was new. For the past couple months; when I first start it, the oil pressure gauge reads 20-25 lbs. Once it warms up it's just fine; 50-60 lbs. NO CLACKING OR OTHER NOISES ARE COMING FROM THE ENGINE. I've changed the oil and filter (Fram) twice already but no difference. Any suggestions as to what could be causing this? Perhaps the sending unit is faulty? This makes no sense to me; I would think that the opposite would be true - high pressure when cold, low when hot. -Maize

Response From Discretesignals

That is a lot of miles. Oil pressure seems to be within specifications.

Specification when the engine is hot:

6 psi at 1,000 engine RPM)
18 psi at 2,000 engine RPM
24 psi at 4,000 engine RPM


Could be a gauge or sender problem. You could screw in a oil pressure gauge and confirm your readings.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

?? By rights should read higher at first start up if correct readings which they may not be. I would check by separate gauge as DS suggested and also switch out oil filter to a Wix or NAPA gold (should be same) filter. I'm not pleased that manufacturers maintain their same specs anymore with any of them. Allied Signal (Fram) TMK as a company has changed hands and Wix may have too

Plenty of miles for assorted reasons. I've never seen actual lower oil pressure cold vs warm even with some really tired high mile engines,

2012 Chevy Captiva killing alternators

Showing 2 out of 5 Posts | Show 3 Hidden Posts
Question From MrRumpus on 2012 Chevy Captiva killing alternators

I have a 2012 Chevy Captiva that is on its 3rd alternator... First one died in 2014, next one lasted a year then died 2015, then the third one died last month... Now I'm sitting on the side of the road waiting for a tow looking at having (what I suspect) a 4th alternator replacement...

The car does the same thing every time, all warning lights come on, all power, gauges die, few mins later car dies. This past time the tranny kicked something fierce before it died. Any ideas on what I should do?

The shop I have had the alternator fixed at keeps just replacing it (under warranty) but I want to be done with this problem for good.

Response From Double J Top Rated Answer

I wouldn't know one of these if it came up and kicked me in the a** but I did find a Technical Service Bulletin that MAY apply..who knows
It only applies to a certain engines so check to see if you have it..

Agree tho, they may be putting on junk parts...ask where they get their parts from...

When performing the Charging System Test in SI, the technician may observe that the charging system voltage is less than the specified range of 12.6–15.0V and/or the charging system may not have any output.
This condition may be caused by engine oil previously being spilled on the generator in one of the following ways:

  • Topping off the engine oil level and spilling oil on the generator, which is directly below the engine oil fill cap.
  • The vehicle was serviced for an oil and filter change and when the oil filter was removed, some of the used engine oil was allowed to spill on the generator.

    Technicians MUST take extra care to prevent ANY oil from spilling or dripping onto the generator when performing any service that requires the removal of the oil filter or when adding oil to the engine.

    some thoughts:
    is vehicle STOCK - nothing electrical added ?
    Have you scanned for codes?
    maybe the alts you are getting are sub par - cheap parts house models.
    Check elec system, unusual draws, demands, wiring etc.

    If you don't have an aftermarket, high power stereo, they are probably just junk parts. You might want to change brands.

    Question From terrain_cath on Lemon 2011 GMC Terrain SLE AWD

    Hi all,

    I'm hoping someone who knows things about cars will be able to help me out with some information.. I unfortunately don't know a thing and no one at GMC has been very forthcoming with info, though not for a lack of asking. I'll try and keep this as short as possible! Please let me know if there is any further information you might need!

    I bought a dealer demo 2011 GMC Terrain SLE AWD (4CYL). When I drove it off the lot it had just under 11k on it. The dealers had said they had done an oil/filter change just prior to me taking it, but I found out later they had not, although they had reset the info saying they had..

    So, I bought this car August 2011. Things were ok for the first few months, ok fuel economy (though not close to what was advertised), but then the car started to drive rough. I brought it in for my first oil change at 26000km, let the techs know that it had started to drive/sound 'rough', but they found no problems. I had moved since I bought the car and the new dealership had asked for documentation showing the 0-15k oil change had been done, and i explained it was done prior to purchasing as it had been a dealer demo. My new local GMC called where it was originally purchased, and they told them they had never done this prior to me driving it off the lot.

    The car continued to drive rough, and at the next oil change the techs again said they had a look but could not identify any problems.

    In July, the engine light came on while I was out of town. I brought it to the local GMC and they said that it was a computer glitch, that they had reset it and that would fix the problem. I drove back home the next day, and as i pulled into the gas station in town the car stalled. I was able to get the car home, but it stalled 3 or 4 more times on the short drive to my house.

    I brought the vehicle into the GMC here where I live, and they ended up having to keep the car for more than a week. I'll list the description/correction for all of the things that were 'fixed' during this visit. it is the most lengthy:

    Case 1
    12635447 - chain pkg-tmg
    12646783 - valve asm-cm/shf posn actr int sol
    12646784 - valve asm-cm/shf posn actr exh sol
    11588714 - bolt
    12621505 - actuator
    12645237 - chain asm-w/pmp & barl shf
    90537300 - tensioner
    11588844 - bolt,cm/shf posn actr
    11589123 - bolt
    24435052 - gasket
    12584041 - seal
    12609291 - gasket kit, cm/shf cvr
    11588522 - bolt - hvy hx flg hd shldr
    11588714 - bolt
    Tech Cause: P0011 and P0014

    Case 2 - added operation - replace DI pump found on job 1. tech cause - leaking fuel pressure. tech comments -replaced direct injection pump
    12641847 - pump asm-fuel
    12608374 - pipe asm-feul feed inter


    the car began leaking oil in our drive about 2 weeks later, and you could also smell the oil in the car occasionally. We brought it back in, and this is what was found/done

    Case 1
    992878 - *80c
    12609291 - gasket kit, cm/shf cvr
    tech comments - camshaft cover gasket replacement

    Case 2
    12608374 - pipe asm- fuel feed inter
    tech comments -L0170 0.3 + 0.4 Fuel feed intermediate pipe replacement


    A few weeks after this was replaced (they again had the car for a few days to sort this) i started noticing a funny noise when the gear was changed to/from any position ie P to D to R to N whatever. Also, the air conditioning began working only intermittently, and the rear power windows became VERY slow, and often wouldn't go up or down without manual help (ie pulling window back up or down). Back to the shop.

    Case 1 - the noise
    Tech comments - started vehicle and hear click noise from front suspension. found bulletin #09-04-95-001D and will require washers in drive shafts. parts on order.. (This was nearly 3 weeks ago and we have not yet heard back from them).

    Case 2
    tech comments - refit and secure right rear door weatherstrip

    They didn't even bother to look at the AC problem and said they'd look next time we brought it in..

    So, I really have no idea what any of this means, but it seems like an awful lot going wrong in a car that is just over 1 year old. I think my biggest concern is that these problems will keep on happening once the warranty has expired, and i really can't afford all of these repairs. would any of these problems that have already happened lead to more problems happening in the future? i know if the head gasket goes that could cause more probs and i'm wondering if i may be in a similar situation.. i've tried figuring this all out on my own but i'm having a tough time 'getting it'..
    i would like to give a call to GMC head office, but i would like to be a little more informed before I call, and i don't know a thing about cars..

    Also, when I first purchased the vehicle, I would get ~750km/tank highway driving, ~500 in the city. Consistently for the last at least 6 months, probably closer to 8 or 9, i get no more than 300km in the city, and about 600 hiway driving. Eco or not, it's always the same. i don't speed, do hard and fast stop and starts, so that's not affecting the fuel economy either.

    When the vehicle is at a stop (it's been doing this since day 1) it's like the car lurches forward a bit then rocks back, and even when stopped the revs are probably halfway between 0 and 1 (never idle at 0).

    i know this post is quite long, but i would really appreciate any advice/feedback anyone would provide..

    thanks in advance.. i hope i've posted this in the right section!

    Response From terrain_cath

    Hey. Thanks for responses so far. Car was a dealer demo, sold to me as new, had no previous registered owners since it was only the dealer demo. But I live in Canada and we have no(!) lemon laws in this country anyway. GMC does participate in CAMVAP though which is binding arbitration in disputes been vehicle manufacturers and owners. Can result in full refunds with interest or swapping out to a brand new car - whichever the owner prefers, if the owner wins, of course. This would be no cost to me.

    I know a couple of people who had GMC cars (not terrains) that in 1 situation they swapped out the vehicle for a brand new one (head gasket went when car was 16 months old) and GMC provided a full refund in the other case, though I can't remember what the issue(s) was with that vehicle. The owners had to kick up a bit of a stink, but GMC did eventually make things right in both cases without having to go to CAMVAP.

    I guess that is my question. Is it worth my time to talk to GMC at the corporate level and see if they will help, and if not go to CAMVAP? Could the fact that the original dealership did not do that first oil change as they were supposed to (documented by my new GMC garage) have lead to all of these other issues that have since arisen?
    I have no idea what any of the issues that have so far happened with my car mean. Should they happen to a car this new? Since its had these problems already does that suggest these issues will continue for the lifetime of this car? Do I have a case if I try and get GMC or CAMVAP to get me in a car that works or a refund?

    Please advise! And thanks again for all of the info given so far.

    Also, car has 51k on it now if that's important.

    Response From Discretesignals

    Your going to have to check with your state to see if your vehicle could fall under the provisions of the lemon law. Usually if there is a problem that affects the safety, use, or value of the vehicle that keeps popping up after many attempts to repair it, it may fall under the lemon law in your state.

    Response From Hammer Time

    Most lemon laws only apply to new vehicles, not used.

    Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

    Depends on which state you live in.

    Response From Hammer Time

    I realize that but i never heard of any state applying a lemon law to a used car.
