I just changed my oil. I used a genuine VW filter. I seated the filter in the plastic threaded base securely. I replaced the circular black gasket at the top of the plastic base, above the threads. I made sure to coat the gasket with oil for a good seal. Oil is DUMPING out of the gasket. There seems to be pressure that is allowing it to leak. What did I do wrong? It seems if you overtighten the base, the gasket binds and slips out of the proper seating. If you don't tighten it enough, it leaks as well. Did I put the gasket in wrong? Or do I need to really crank it down tighter? I have had no luck. Any insight would greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advance for helping me.
