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.
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.

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.
Yup, had the loose oil filter issue. Dealer changed and it was leaking less than 1500 miles later. They said it was loose and the gasket had a crease in it. Whatever, it leaked overnight when the engine was not running, a drop or two every few minutes. Had a puddle of oil the next morning. They made no charge for the filter or oil, but the color of the filter went from orange to green.
I think mine starts leaking about every 3000-3500 miles. Figure it is time to change oil. I don't like the Chrysler oil filters, but you can't beat the 4 oil changes for $65 at the dealer.
Lovin' my CARBON FOOT PRINT!
