HELP! I have been tracing an oil leak thinking it was the pan gasket. But after cleaning up all the oil that has blown back while driving I started it up and see that the oil is running down the filter and making a puddle the size of a small plate in about 30 seconds of the engine running. Please help me figure out what is going on. I have had this ruck about a month and have not changed to oil yet *trying to fix some smaller problems) could this be an old oil filter gasket that got stuck and is preventing a proper seal. I tried tightening the filter and it is as tight as I can get it yet still pouring oil.
