I agree. Starts with using someone else's video. I think the filter was not tight enough when installed and loosened slightly over time. Hard to imagine a defect in the filter taking 8000 miles to show up.Did the old gasket come off with the old filter? I think something is suspicious about the whole ordeal.
How long did it take for the leak to show up? Right after install, after some miles put on it?Contact FRAM. I recently had an ever so light weep on a FRAM Ultra and they had me send it to them for testing, then sent me back the testing results, all of which I posted on here. They also sent me two free replacements for my trouble. They have excellent support.

I always do like my dad who showed me how to change oil when I was a teenager, after a fresh oil change start car and I lay on the ground for several minutes watching to make sure nothing is leaking underneath for several minutes. But honestly after that I don’t think about it again until it’s time for another oil change.
guess I should start take a peek every so often at it just to make sure all is well
All branding agreements are different but normally when a manufacturer makes a "branded" part for another OEM- part of that agreement is to hold the component OEM "harmless" because they almost always make the components to a specific speciation or standard for the "branding".
My Nephew had a Fram blow, lost all his oil. Completely trashed engine. Nephew contacted Fram who told him to send the blown filter ton them. Like an idiot, my dumb a$$ nephew did. Fram denied there was anything wrong with filter, and kept the filter.
