Double check fluid level, if it is good then there is a possibility that the filter assembly dropped into the pan.

Thanks I think that's the problem because I only hand tight it, the old one I took it out just with my fingers and I thought that's how it was supposed to be

I was referring to the pickup filter screen that sets just below the valve body, you are right about the spin on filter as it should only be hand tightened, just make sure the o-ring from the old spin on didn't stick to the mounting flange.

Are you talking about the filter that has a flat form?

Yes
