March 26, 2012Yesterday when i went to change my oil the gasket that sit between the filter and pan fell off. went to buy a new one and advance auto didn`t have it. When tightening the filter the gasket doesn`t sit flush but moves and becomes a oval shape and of course when you start it up the oil squirts thru the filter. wondering what y`all would do? just take the gasket off and tighten more. thanks for the advice

March 27, 2012The oil filter has the gasket on it. You don`t need another gasket. What probably happened is that when you removed the old filter, the gasket came off and stayed with the motor. When installing the new filter, put a little bit of new oil on the gasket.

March 29, 2012Thanks. I thought I was seriously screwed here. I always put a lil oil on top of the filter. Thanks again.
