The reason why I ask is because I had a large puddle of oil this morning coming from the area of the oil filter/oil pan and thought it was the pan gasket leaking. When I got a closer look I found that the oil filter canister was leaking like a sieve... from around the canister seal area. So for now, I'm ordering a new canister. I do wonder... when should I be concerned about the oil pump bolts loosening up and if now is as good a time as any to take care of it. Any thoughts?
