Re: Oil filter leak 4.7 HO
I used K&N oil filters on mine the entire time I owned it...I thought I had the same issue. Turned out it was a front timing cover leak. It was barely there, but enough to lay a drop or two of oil on my very white K&N filter. Once the cover came off and was re-sealed, the issue cleared up....something to look at. The rubber o-ring on the oil filter is thick enough to make up for what appears to be a very minor imperfection in mating surfaces. I always installed mine on the tighter side...having a nut welded on the end makes that a lot easier to manage.
