I had a similar leak after a dealer oil change. The tech had over tightened the filter housing and cracked it. Dealer replaced it.

OK, when I was looking around this evening to see if there was a leak (no) I noticed this:



In another thread I remember reading that the metal clip is supposed to line up with the strip of metal running vertically up the metal housing attached to the engine.

So that probably means they over-tightened it by an eighth of a turn?

Yep, or a turn and and eighth, if that's even possible. Mine does click just a hair past it and that's where it likes to sit. Always has, just the way it's always been. Not quite that far though.

If it's only 1/8 turn then nothing to get worried about. If you think it's waaaaay tight that's different. I dont think they could get it a full turn over tight though without breaking something.

Id have to look but I don't think thats too far off, that "line" on the casing doesn't mean much. I'm sure its fine and I'm sure each truck is a bit different on where the final resting place is for the filter housing when tightened up.

My technique besides visual inspection was wiping the entire surface of the housing with a paper towel, which turned up nothing. Hopefully the same today after some more driving around.

There is part of me that just wants to just do the whole thing over right now to make sure it's done right ...
I just posted in one of the other oil change story threads about having the dealer loosen their over-torqued housing. They replaced the filter for me but somehow got quite a bit of oil on the housing. In my case I didn't notice any drips but cleaned the housing and everything was fine.

Hope you don't find any more drips! I would recommend, that you make sure the filter housing and housing drain plug are not over-torqued.

Mine never lines up all that well. Usually off a good bit. I am positive I do no over-tighten but just go until it is snug and I can feel no more gap between the housing and the block. ���� Never had any issues.

I don't trust them either but a lot of heavy volume places have lube pumps that pull from a large drum. I'm not sure if they have a meter on them or if they check the dipstick. I don't think underfilling by 0.6 quarts is going to cause any long term damage but best to have the correct amount.

We have seen the o-rings from cheaper filters leak as well as cracked plastic housing. On the housing, Dorman makes a metal one that we have had good luck with when needed.

I just snagged a new OEM metal housing off eBay for $18 shipped. Not worth chancing an aftermarket version IMO. You just need to swap over the metal perforated tube from the old plastic housing.

Yeah I totally forgot some of the factory ones are metal.
