    Default 1997 mecury mountaineer oil leak

    Looks like I have an oil leak at the oil filter adapter on my car. I have a 5.0 engine in this vehicle. What is the common problem gasket to replace on this engine? Is it the gasket between the engine and the adapter? Just need some ideas because I was told that some gaskets are obsolete.

    Thanks,
    Gary

    Hello Garyware,

    Maybe just a couple of o-ring seals... Start at a dealership parts department or an online OEM parts supplier.

    Got the o-rings and put them. Very easy install.

    Thanks for your help,
