About 10 months ago, I had some issues with my car and needed to have a new front axle put in. Since then my car has been driving with very few problems. A month ago, I went to get an oil change and the people performing it told me that they were having some trouble getting the oil filter off. I figured it was stuck on or something. Earlier today, I got my oil changed again and the people performing my oil change informed me that they could not get my oil filter off because my oil filter was alsmost stuck against my cars front axle.

My car isn't badly shaking or making any grinding noises or anything else. Did the people who installed my new axle do a bad job? What the heck can cause this?
