Hi all! I changed my oil about a month and a half ago with no issues until now. I noticed a few spots on my garage floor and checked the oil and it was LOW. Upon inspection, I found that the oil is coming from the oil filter. I've read that this could simply be over-tightening of the filter, a bad filter gasket, or as much as the oil filter housing. If it's either of the first two, that's a pretty straight forward fix. Is there a good way to determine if the housing is causing the leak?

Did you install the new crush washer?
