Need help how many bolts hold oil filter housing. Do i need any special tools to take off and replace gasket. Has a small leak where the bolt holds down the part of the housing with a slot for the bolt has any body had problems with this leaking
I found 2 bolts one at 8 clock one at one the. One is behind ac pump what a pain so that now has to come off i tried a bent wrench but not enough room i think 06 might be diffrent then 05 thanks for info if you have anything on ac pump bolt or any thing on 06 oil adap let me know thanks.
Sorry for being late on the post. I had the same leak on my 2006 impala v6 3500 engine. There are three bolts to remove on the adapter plate. One is easy, the second i removed the starter to makd it easy to remove the second bolt and make more room and the third I had to unbolt the ac pump.
First remove tension on the belt. There are four bolts to loosen on the ac pump. Two near the oil filter adapter and two on the front of engine where the belt is. Then you can move the ac pump to access the last bolt. Since the housing is slotted I left the third bolt in and only loosened it.
Hope it helps.
