Hello inmates or whatever this group is collectively called.

I bought a 2011 pathfinder and it had an oil leak coming from the filter.
No biggie. Right?

Well I changed the oil and filter and put a new washer in the darn thing is still leaking ...my question for the group is the oil filter crush washer finicky?
Or are there other oil leaks that might look like they’re coming from the filter but are more sinister? I took a few pictures under the car and will post if I can figure out how to do it here thanks you guys bye

Had the same issue a while back. Bought the oil filter cooler seal and replaced it. I believe it's a 22mm socket around the protruding bolt/nut thing that the oil filter screws onto. My browser is all jacked up right now and don't feel like troubleshooting it so not gonna type too much right now, but the below video should be useful as a visual.
