Oil change

I got my oil changed at a shop the other day And now it pisses out oil now. I don't think they put the filter in first. It looks like the oil is coming out on top of motor now. Any suggestions

Hi. make sure there is an o ring on the oil filter cap and that the cap is snug.

If its a 6.0 loosen the cap with a cresent wrench and make sure the O ring around the cap is fine and is lubed. Sometimes they like to bind up. Check it out and re install. Youll feel the cap bottom out or stop going tight and your done.

If its a 7.3 use a strap wrench on those filters to tighten. I see mechanics double man hand it on but using a oil filter wrench is the way to go.

It's a 6.0 does it matter if you put the oil filter in first then drain plug

I always take out the filter and replace before I lift it up on the drive on at work. 15 bottles , fire it up and let it run, shut it off, check the dipstick and out the door.

I keep a couple spare oil filter cap o-rings on hand. Every once in a while someone will come in that had their oil changed elsewhere and the cheap cap o-ring didn't seal.
