This reminds me, I am due for an oil change, due to time, not miles driven.

I drive a '13 Outback 2.5L. I get filters from the local dealer ~$8.00 incl tax, Mobil 1 0W20 5qt jugs from Walmart @ ~$26, and I installed a Fumoto valve.

Local subaru dealer for me is 35 minutes away. I also avoid the walmarts like the black plague.

It's a dealership! Not some uncle ed's. Kick in the nuts is this is now twice in a row even though they didn't charge us! Told my wife not to go back there anymore for anything!
Pretty bad that a dealership can't be trusted!

Dealership doesn't mean trustworthy. There's a Ford dealer in Saginaw that is super shady too that I'd never go to.

They have gone downhill since the old man died. Jim Riehl ran a tight ship.

In their defense it is damn near impossible to find low wage help that isnt completely retarded these days. The shit I see with guys I go though with my business I can see this happening. However youd think the second time around they would put someone better on the task. Did they know when she came in the second that there was a proboem previously? Seems odd for something like this to happen twice, must be a bitch to get at or something

Yep. And now that the media is showcasing the plight of the common WalMart sludge needs to have wages that reflect the profits of the company, we are not going to see the workforce get any smarter.

I think the oil and lube tech bible says finger tight, then giver a quarter turn and she's good.
I know this is an old post. But everytime I read it I ask myself "What does his foot slipping off the clutch have to do with anything?"

He stepped into the oil puddle getting into the truck. Slippery foot on pedal, slipped off. Thats odd he asks himself, looks out on the ground, uh oh. You need to put yourself into his head to understand :D

I knew this one guy one time who bought an oil filter on sale....the gasket was loose on it, but didn't think it mattered. Well, that gasket fell when putting filter on and after hearing water like noises under my jeep, err, this guys car, he realized there was a good reason why that gasket should not be loose on filters.

I take mine to a special place and I do not pay for oil changes. I can get a loaner too if I can't wait for it to get done. Both cars.

We have had the loose oil filter too. When I did my own I hand tighten and then a quarter turn with the wrench, the way my dad taught me.

Now, my first Wrangler had an oil filter backed off after I was stuck in the mud for about 4 hours and idled it because my wife and young son were with me. Never ran hot, but when I started the Jeep cold 2 days later at home (did not drive it the next day) the oil ended up all over the driveway. Once the engine cooled down the metal contracted just enough.
Maybe this is why it is happening, heat expansion.

I would definitely not idle a stuck vehicle in the woods for four hours. Especially with the family.

I would do it again to keep them warm. Why would you not?

And it was not constant at first, just when it got real cold. Had people on the way, was not worried about being stranded forever.

Carbon monoxide poisoning happens too much in those situations. I didn't know you were shutting it off. Btw I really hope heat expansion doesn't cause oil filters and others things to come loose. That could cause some problems.
