oil filter leaking

Hey im new to this site I had recently purchased this e99 f250 and first thing I did was bring it in to get a oil change. I brought it to walmart and they did the oil change about 1200 miles later I started to notice puddles of oil underneath the truck. When I crawled under there to check things out I noticed the oil was leaking from the gasket of the oil filter. I called walmart they told me to bring it in, It was down 3 quarts so they topped it off and then proceeded to tell me diesel motors vibrate a lot and its very common of the oil filter coming loose "doesnt seem right to me". I left the shop and had to stop to get fuel so I looked under there and yet again still leaking. So can anyone explain to me what might be going on because walmart is telling me I have another problem and there work did not cause this and there not responsible.

Go back, and have them replace the filter with a Motorcraft filter. They sell them there.

$9.99 or so.

I have gotten my oil changed there before without issue, its just an oil change, so long as they use Diesel rated 15/40 there is nothing to worry about.

More then likely just a bad filter.

FYI, I buy all my oil change materials from wal-mart. They almost always have the best deal on Delo 15/40 and always have the best deal on filters.

Of course I used to get my oil changed at Jiffy Lube (when the company paid for it) and never had an issue in over a million miles.

3 qts is nothing, the truck holds 14+ so...

More or less yes they are not the best. I've used them without issue, but I prefer the Motorcraft ones.

Have you tired tightening them? I never use a wrench on mine, hand tight is all you need.
