Title: Oil leak
Post by: TeguTerra on January 29, 2015, 08:26:42 AM
So I have a small oil leak that looks to be coming from by the oil filter but it's making a massive mess on the skid plate.   I saw the titans have a O-ring behind where the filter screws in for the oil cooler that goes out right there,  are the xterras the same and that would probably be my guilty culprit?

Yes, the Xterras have the O-ring, too.  Should be in the neighborhood of $3-$4 for the part.

Here is a good thread on thenewX about it:  http://www.thenewx.org/forum/showthread.php?t=24124 (http://www.thenewx.org/forum/showthread.php?t=24124)

If it were me, I would start with just replacing the o-ring.  One of the posts suggests modifying / replacing the oil cooler, but that seems excessive to me.
