Leaking oil

Whenever i let me car sit overnight then crank it up lately it has been leaking a good amount of oil for the first 2-5secs of startup but it stops right after and if the engine is slightly warm it wont leak. Its leaking somewhere in the area of the oil filter

Quite easy. I don't remember if I removed the oil filter or not but you just unbolt a few bolts, pull the piece off where you screw on an oil filter,change the gasket, wipe up a little bit of coolant and oil, and tighten it up.

It is easy, you will need to be prepared to do an oil change. Best to drain the oil before messing with the adapter. Removing the oil filter will help you access the the top bolt if i remember correctly. You will also have to prepare yourself to replace some coolant as well.

All said and done i replaced mine in about 30min with access to a lift.

Is it okay to reuse the stuff? Everything has about 500miles on it.

You won't lose much oil at all during this process. Just change the gasket when the engine is cold. Mine only dropped like 1/8th to 1/4 of a quart of oil and not much coolant. Even if you pull your oil filter just don't drain it. Have a catch pan and rags ready.
