Leaking Oil Filter

Recommended Posts

A friend sent me this photo of a Legacy oil filter that had leaked ...

That may not be the correct filter for the 2.5 H4. It's definitely not the 15208AA15A (blue) filter currently specified by Subaru for the engine.

Everything looks SUPER clean for an engine that lost "most" of it's oil from a leaking filter. I don't see ANY mess, other than a little oil in the basin around the filter.

But if this was the factory-installed filter and the car is brand new, I would certainly head to the dealer for another filter and free oil change, and have them clean up the oil in the basin.
