I noticed a drop of oil about the size of a nickel when I moved my 06 Murcie today. I jacked the rear of the car up to see if I could tell where the leak was originating from. The oil filter itself is obviously leaking, but on the engine directly adjacent from the oil filter appears to have a very thin coat of oil. I took a picture with my hand where the thin coat of oil appears to be on the engine. The underside of the engine has also accumulated oil residue as well. Could this just be a faulty seal on the oil filter and the pressure caused the oil to spray on to side of engine? IMG_8418.jpg

Update: with a greasy hand and oil filter covered in oil I was easily able to tighten it with my hand by a little more than a 1/4 of a turn. Not sure if this might give any further insight.
