I need oil leak advice! (archive)

I have been parking my '02 too close to Jaguars and Triumphs! It has developed a nasty little oil leak and I wonder if others have had this problem - possible solutions...

The upper most bolt that affixes the filter head to the block is leaking rather rapidly - I tried removing, cleaning, checking for cracks - still leaks! I even used some thread sealer to keep the oil from travelling through the bolt threads - no luck!

Do these things ever distort or warp to the point that they'd leak?

I've never had this problem -EVER on any '02!!

It's messing up my pretty new engine like mad!

any answers or ideas before I start swapping used filter heads????

Thanks all!
