    Our oil leaks at the filter and adapter area that's attached to the engine. It has leaked since we have bought it at 90,000 miles and still leaks at 135000. What can I do?

    Small leak from oil filter. Thinking a new oil change would fix the problem but after three seasons still the same leak.

    Noticed the oil filter and oil pan were saturated in oil and just assumed it was the oil filter itself. After changing the filter at the next oil change i noticed the leak didn't subside. Now with 88,000 miles the leak has progressively gotten worse. I hadn't addressed the problem because it wasn't causing a noticeable loss of oil but now the oil pan and filter are soo saturated in oil that its occasionally dripping and it's time to fix the problem before it gets any worse. With how many people reported this same problem I believe the oil filter adapter should be recalled.
