Yes, it’s a 3.6. I’ll have to take a look at the filter & check out the gasket hoping it’s an easy fixI'm assuming by your username that it's a 3.6 Pentastar? Have you checked the tightness of the filter and plug? I'm not familiar with that motor, but I'd check the filter and make sure it's tight, and make sure the gasket from the old filter isn't still there.
There was also recently a thread about something similar, let me see if I can find it.
That looks to be the likely cause as you can see the oil is dripping down from above the pan. Gravity and wind is spreading it all around the cross member there.Oil running down the transmission is a tell-tale sign the oil filter housing is leaking. Sometimes the O-Rings at the base will leak and sometimes the housing will crack if the cap is over-tightened--which may be the case for you.The torque is only 18-ft lbs. The upper & lower intakes have to come off to replace it.
That's a nice thought, but I wouldn't think the oil would be so dark.The only way to be sure is to wash it all down, get her up on a lift and then trace the leak upwards to the source. It's also possible that the tech wasn't careful and spilled a bunch of oil when refilling after the oil change. If that's the case, you wouldn't see any oil drip once you clean all the existing shizz off there.
Dorman is crap. Aren't they the ones who make the junk lifters?That's a nice thought, but I wouldn't think the oil would be so dark.
I've heard there's a all aluminum housing. Appears to be made by dorman. So take that for what it's worth.
