Asked by Jan 13, 2016 at 06:09 AM about the 2006 Dodge Charger RT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Well I was pulling into my garage when I noticed
that there was a pretty big wet spot on the floor
and check it out it was what I thought it was. So
tonight I stay late at work so I can find where it
was coming from..... so I pin point it around the oil
filter so I hand tighten it up again to make sure it
was tight thought I fix it cuz it wasn't leaking no
more but have found that it will only leak when u
are driving forward not in reverse does anybody
know what causes it to do that and how to fix it?

Change oil lately? The old oil filter gasket may have stuck on the sealing surface. The new oil filter would shit out the old gasket for it not to seal.

Sounds like the filter might be too tight and or needs to be reseated. Drain the oil, remove the filter, check the gasket and clean the mating surface on the block, and reinstall by hand tighting and add the oil you just drained back into the engine if it is still new and clean.

I changed the oil back in November it started leaking the last couple days

Check to see if the oil filter is loose or install a new one and top off the oil.

Just had a thought. Is it engine oil or transmission fluid?
