My oil filter on my 2010 Gmc siarrakeep looseing up about a week after oil changes

make sure the filter is torqued to the correct tension when first fitted , coat the filter seal with engine oil , tighten by hand then a further 1/4 turn , when the engine is started oil pressure will slightly expand the filter housing further increasing the filter tightening torque ,it should never come loose. check the oil pump pressure to make sure every thing is up to scratch.

Location of oil filter on 2010 equinex (4 cylinder)

When Looking At The Front Of The Vehicle, The Oil Filter Is Under The Right Side Of The Intake Manifold (Located Just Above The Bell Housing). In Order To Change It, You Will Need A 36mm ECOTEC Filter Wrench (Its A Really Shallow Socket) A Swivel, 12" Extension & Ratchet. The Thing You Are Removing Is The Black Cap. Rotate It Until It Can Be Removed By Hand & Lift Out. When Installing The New Filter, Make Sure The Little o-ring Came w/ The Old Filter & Drop The Filter & Cap Straight Down Into The Block --HAND TIGHTEN-- Until The Factory O-ring (Its Reusable) Contacts The Block & Finish Tightening w/ The Socket - Just Needs To Be Snug, Dont Stupid Tighten It or It Will Break.
