Loose oil filter???

I keep getting oil leaks, 2010 jeep liberty, from the oil filter area. It is not from the pressure sender above. I been there 5 times in 2 months with oil leak complaints and each time I am told the oil filter is loose. They tighten it yet after a week or so it becomes loose to start leaking onto the floor. I even seen them tighten it and yet it becomes loose. What could be the reason as they look as it as a mystery also.

Who's changing your oil? Is that person lubricating the oil filter's gasket upon install?

I don't know what it is about the Liberty and the oil filter, but I have had to go back two times to two different dealerships to have the filter tightened. From what I understand it is in a real _itch of a location and if you have the skid plate pkg it is even worse to get at.

Good Luck

Bought mine used 21 mts ago and I had a leak at the filter and had to tighten it 3 times.Had the oil and filter changed 3 times since and the problem does not seem to recur. Oil changes always done at dealership with regular 5-20w oil.
