I noticed I was leaking oil and I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. I cleaned the entire front and sides of the engine with a microfiber cloth. I had already replaced the Valve cover plate and seal a few months back, so I know that wasn't the problem (that area had no oil drips). Did some research and found out sometimes the Lower Filter Housing Seal leaks. Next thing I did after I cleaned the engine, was to start this baby up. I let it run for 10 min, and sure thing, I saw a small drip slowly creep its way out of the bottom of the filter housing. I took the chance to also replace the Oil Cooler Seals since I had to remove it in order to remove the O.F.H.S..
