Thanks for the replys. The O-rings I refer to are the ones on the bottom of the tube that is part of the oil filter canister top. If I am correct they seal the oil drain hole for the filter housing so when you pull up on the lid the oil drains away. My problem is that I think the oil is still draining after the car sits for a while (several hours). Is there any other way the oil can escape the filter housing when the engine is off?
