Default Oil lines

Well went out this morning and noticed about 15 small oil spots in my driveway..

Went to where i get my oil changed and all none warranty work done had them make sure everything was tight from the last change as oil looked kinda new in the snow.

wasn't long before we spotted the culprit the oil lines right above the filter looks as if the fittings weren't tightened properly.. I'll get some pics when it goes to the dealership again.

and seeing as there leaking as bad as they are and its covered. Change them I was tempted to go pull the drain plug and run it out get a new motor lol

nut 600 and change for re and re of the lines is better then a 5000.00 motor.
