Replacing Oil Filter Housing Gasket
Hello all, I noticed an oil leak from the front of my engine. Looks to be from the oil filter housing. I ran a search and found some good info, but have a few additional questions.
1. Is this usually just the gasket, or does the housing itself ever need replacing?
2. I've read the book says 3 hrs, but a good mechanic can do it in 2 hrs, does this sound right?
3. While I'm replacing this is there anything else I should replace while getting in there?
For reference the vehicle is a 2003 330Ci with 82,000 miles.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
