Thanks for that additional info. So then the way to prevent this from happening in the future, is to make sure you have possession of the original gasket from the old filter before putting the new filter on.It was pouring out the OF area.
No double gasket. Filter was tight
Apparently, the gasket fell of the new filter while trying to install it through the wheel well.
Since it is impossible to see the filter while installing it, I didn't realize it came off until I pulled the new filter off.
I've changed the oil myself on three of the four Rangers that I have owned over the years, and this was a first.
