Always check the old filter to make sure the old seal came off with the filter. There is a reason the seal will fail. The oil filter has a raised metal band that keeps the seal in place. the old seal has nothing to keep it from blowing out. When the oil pressure gets high enough it will push the seal out. Look at the filter the next time you go the change the oil and you will see the seal retainer.

Thanks folks.

The leak is not coming from the oil filter!

It appears to be from the connections at the oil cooler.

Could just be an "O" ring failure.
