Is this your first time doing the oil filter housing gasket? mine is seeping and oil is covering mostly the whole engine from the bottom especially the driver side

My OFHG is fine, I'm using the VR brand to replace the VCG.

Great! Thanks for the help, that's what I also used for my VCG.

Good luck

Last Saturday I completed the OFHG and the belts, all went well except putting back the alternator which took sometime to have it set correctly and align the bottom bolt. The job took about 3 hours to complete.
