For some reason the oil filter cap is seeping oil around the seems. Its pissing out. Changed the rubber o ring twice already. Never had an issue doing this on my N54. Same style cap and filter.

Ugh..... guess I'll try one of those aluminum ones.

Well....I guess I should check before using n54 filters on an m54. They are different.... doesn't look different.... but I bet the o ring is fatter on the m54.

So yes....I bought the correct oil filter and the o ring for the oil filter cap on the m54 is HUGE compared to the one on the n54. No wonder oil was pissing out. Geeze....I should know better to check first.

Huh? Two totally different filters and sizes. Hard to understand how you could confuse the two....
Maybe I missed your meaning?
