Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Saturn Vue.  I changed the oil and filter and ever since I am having a problem with oiling leaking from around the oil filter.  I have tried several different oil filters and have the same problem.

Are you sure the original filter gasket came off with the filter? Check to see if the original one might be stuck on the engine. If that isn't it, are you over tightening the filter? Should only be tightened hand tight only. maybe a 1/4 turn with a wrench.

Also make sure you coat the new filter gasket with some oil with finger or it will twist..not seal.
