Hi all, having problems with our 08 Rodeo leaking from the oil filter. Anyone else had this problem? First time it leaked the mechanic said faulty oil filter(he had supplied the filter and did the oil change a few weeks prior). He changed it out and charged me full oil change price. Noticed oil on the driveway again today- had a look- looks like same thing again- leaking from the filter. Wondering if this is a filter issue or something more. Constructive thoughts welcome. doc.

Gday Doc
Is the filter being over tightened? Only supposed to go 240 deg from touching the seal.
