Anybody seen or know about oil leak from above oil filter housing. 2007 Saturn Aura 3.5. I cleaned filter and all around housing, start engine, and oil right away starts leaking. But coming down from above filter housing. Took side covers off, but can't see where it is coming from.:crying:

Sponfry - Did you ever figure out the oil leak? I'm having the same issue.

The oil pressure sensor sits above the oil filter housing, thats probably whats leaking.

Yes I found the problem.... It was the gasket between the filter housing and the engine block. Was pretty easy to change.:rofl:
