What a mess.

Help. I found a mess of oil all over the front of my engine. After cleaning up what I could I found the oil is leaking from the filter housing. There is a square finned section attached to the housing itslef and the oil is leaking from between them. What is the square fined piece and is this something I can fix? Is there a gasket bewteen them or is it all one part that has maybe cracked? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

If you did an oil change or just had one done, it could be the top O-ring on the filter or the large nut at the bottom of the filter housing (#8 in diagram).

Or as Drewbush said the O-rings in between the cooler and filter housing. The two seals in between are #112 184 02 61 & 112 184 03 61 and the seal at the bottom of the housing is 112 184 00 61 (#6 in the diagram). Here are the instructions.
