Oil filter adapter gasket 3.5L
A couple of weeks ago I changed the oil filter adapter gasket.
It was easy to change. I read things that said the serpentine belt and AC compressor bolts had to be loosened. I didn't have to do any of that. I'm between oil changes so I didn't drain the oil. Just spun off the filter and topped up afterwards. Took out 2 bolts, loosened the third one at the slot. Cleaned up the mating surfaces and put it back together. (disconnect the battery or the starter is live)
You can see the crack in the original gasket which allowed oil to leak around one of the bolts. The whole center fell out when I took it out.
The Fel-Pro gasket is a much better, simpler design. Part number is 72423.
I have another small leak to fix. One of the bolts that go in to the side of the oil pan is seeping a bit. The oil level is above it so at the next oil change I'll take them all out and RTV them.
