look at dates when you post in old threads, its easier for us if you make a new one and explain the problem you are having

Moved to its own thread.

wipe down the area real good. Then check for any leakage. If you don't see anything, use a clean paper towel and dab around that area. Check for any oil on the paper towel. If need be, drive around a bit. Be sure to check above that area as well as the oil could be running down from above.

I chased an oil leak on a Ford Bronco I had after an oil and filter change. I finally discovered, after removing the filter; that the rubber gasket from the old filter was stuck to the oil filter seat on the engine. I couldn't get a good enough seal and torque with the two gaskets. I removed the old one and leak went away!
