supposedly its leaking from the filter, he put another one on... its still leaking. I think im going to have to clean everything as best i can and try and find the area its leaking from, i just dont have the time right now. He is a good mechanic, i dont see why he would run me around, but its still leaking and i need to figure out why.

I have never used a Subaru oil filter and mine never leaked. Did you rub oil on the rubber ring at the top of the oil filter when you put it on?

You know what I'd do in your case?

I'd take it for a Diagnostics at a Suby dealer and when they tell you what it is, go do it yourself.

they do a diagnostics check for free? I have never thought about that. I'm assuming that if i take it in for a diagnostics check, they will check everything... probably hoping to get my money...?

hmm.. no check engine light on mine, i guess I can ask what they would charge to look it over and try and give me an explanation for the leak though.
