    Been looking online for awhile cant seem to find any information anywhere not sure if I am wording what I am looking for correctly or not so asking here. Today I noticed that I am losing about 2 quarts when driving in town glad the oil sending unit is working are I would of not known that I was losing so much oil jamming to the tune's and so on not paying attention.

    Added 2 more quarts and headed back home asap. Jacked the front end up and could see over spray or blow by of oil but no leak. I then started the car after setting the emergency brake and observed a nice stream of oil leaking as though it was a river.

    Cleaned the area off and it appears that the housing that the oil filter screws onto is leaking up top almost impossible to see it really but you can stick your finger between the oil filter and the engine block and it is very obvious. Where can I find a new gasket? Looks like the housing comes off pretty easy just seen a few bolts and of course the small metal plate. Just in case if the housing adapter is bad are there still ones available stock? Thank You
