Default oil leak...

I have an oil leak around my oil filter i have a 94 accord and i was just wondering if anyone has had the same problem. I got the engine dye to see exactly where. But i believe its what the oil filter screws on i believe i torqued it too tight resulting in maybe a crack in it. Does anyone know the name of this part??

how did you tighten the oil filter too tight? i cant really see that happening unless you used a wrench to tighten it.

make sure that the old gasket from the old filter isnt stuck to the block anywhere.

Did you replace it with the right filter?? You may have gotten a filter which is too big, but will still screw on.

since we're talking about a relativly inexpensive part here I'd just take the old one off and replace it with a honda filter. make sure the block is clean from all old debrie and oil, tighten down the honda filter as tight as you can get it with one hand, then use an oil wrench and go 1/4-1/2 turn more and try that.
