Post the brand and part number on the new filter itself....... I'll check it for you....... IF you want to know if it's the right filter that is! ..... Maybe you dont want to know..... that you have the wrong filter and/or have fouled the threads!!!

Did the gasket from the old oil filter stay stuck to engine? Next inspect the theads where the filter screws on for damage.
no I got the old gasket off also and I cant see any damage I even tried to screw the old filter back on and it wont go took a lot of force for me to get the old filter off though
