    Default Vec 1.9 cdti oil filter leak

    Can anyone help. Noticed an oil smell coming from the engine when stationary, checked under the car and noticed the drain pipe on the oil filter to be leaking onto the exhaust. I did an oil change replaced the oil filter and the two seals but it still seems to be leaking

    Has anybody else experienced this? Are the cartridges prone to cracking?
    I was thinking about bunging up the drain pipe to stop the leak.

    Any help or suggestions would be great

    is the oil level dropping on the dipstick? 1st check I would do would be try tightening up the filter housing, maybe back it off a bit then retighten. iirc the drainhole is only open when the housing is unfastened past a certain point. also check for cross threading or that the seal has jumped off the cap as it was tightened ( had this happen on a HGV when changing fuel filter only found out when it pi55ed diesel everywhere) HTH

    threads seemed fine when i had the cartridge. When I put it back i ensured the seals where seated and applied a small amount of oil on them so they wouldnt bined when putting back in.

    I might take a pun and replace the cartridge insert and see if it solves it

    Was it leaking before you changed the oil filter? there is an oil vapour condensor just above the filter which on mine has a habit of spilling surplus oil if it gets backed up. may be worth giving engine bay a good clean with a steam cleaner in that area and check it after a few days, otherwise as you already said may be worth changing filter again and checking for cross threads or a damaged seal HTH

    I did an oil filter change because it was leaking from the drain pipe.

    I will check oil vapour condensor as well but its definatly coming from the drain pipe.

    Will phone the stealers and see how much a new cartridge is
