Oil Leak


Registered User
I was checking all the fluids in my car earlier today and just checked under the car for the sake of it, and there was a slight spot of oil. Checked my oil and its fine, but I snapped a photo to see where it was coming from and found this...

I don't know much about engines, but this is the oil filter right?

Any comments?

Thanks in advance

might not be a leak it could just be from when the filter was changed someone did not clean of the housing , they do crack but it would be worse than that if it was it would be a constant stream of oil

but clean it off and keep an eye on it
