Hi there,

some oil filters don't use a one way valve and the oil can drain out when the engine shuts down, now this is not a huge problem as often the oil pressure is up with in a few rotations of the engine and the paper element is still oil soaked and some oil is still in the base of the filter, this is not a big issue at all.
