Having problems with your Nissan Maxima ?
Had oil changed by local shop , and i think they cracked the housing that the oil filter attaches to!
I really doubt that the oil filter housing could be cracked by having a new filter put on. The spin on filter's sealing "O" Ring was probably pinched or left off or mis-aligned causing it to leak. With the proper "O" Ring, and seated correctly the spin on filter only has to be hand tight. If it is leaking, take it back and complain.
