Other than that, I don;t see where else the oil would come from if the drain plug was installed. If your filter is bent like the one shown, inspect your filter housing and filter cover for oil filter debris. When a vehicle manufacturer refers to a component as lifetime, the time period is usually 100,000 miles or so. Pouring oil into the filter housing will let it drain into the oil pan, with the cover off. I turned on the engine while the oil filter cover was not tightened.

This innovative technology uses a polymer that contains two chemical hooks that attract and capture both sludge and soot in a single molecule, helping to prevent particles from building up. This total capacity also takes into account the half-quart required to fill the vehicle's oil filter. Don't even think that you can get away with just 5 quarts! The unique titanium technology physically changes the way oil behaves under extreme pressures doubling its film strength, preventing oil from breaking down and reducing friction to maximize engine performance.
