Hi: Chances are the old o-ring from the old filter stuck to the engine and the new one was unable to seal as a result. Remove the filter and check for the old one. If it is there, remove it, make sure the new one is in place on the new filter and has a thin film of oil on it and replace it.

Let me know if this helps.
