Engine Mechanical problem
2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 21000 miles

Recently the transmission was changed at the dealership. In the last week engine oil has been spewing past the oil filter gasket or in one case the oil filter actually expanded and released oil past the oil filter gasket. OEM filters are being used. This is the third oil filter that this has happened with.

It appears that there is too much oil pressure.

Any thoughts?

Thanks
Bill

Check the oil pump pressure relief valve might not be opening
