If that is what you're describing just replace the rubber ring under the filter.

SOURCE: oil leak behind oil filter
you probably have the old gaskket still on the filter or the filter receptacle. Remove the filter and check to see if the gasket is on the filter. Then check where you screw it on there may be the other gasket stuck to that.

SOURCE: oil leak
If it's leaking from the oil filter spacer.( the 2 inch metal ring that attaches to your block, and has two rubber hoses coming out of it, and your oil filter attaches to) There is an o-ring between the spacer and the block. Take off your oil filter, remove the oil filter stud with 1 3/16" socket( or metric equivalent) and the spacer will come off. I found all the auto parts stores around me said that the o-ring was a dealer item. I bought a FRAM PH3387A oil filter and removed the o-ring on that. It fit perfectly, snug down your oil filter stud to specs, then install your oil filter. Double check that the oil filter is not double gasketed, and your are fixed!

i had the same issue. turned out to just be a plasic o ring cracked. theres a metal line that runs out from the mounting area of the oil filter next to the oil pressure sending unit that is for cooling oil (youll have to get the air box out of the way to access it). disconnet that line and there it is. i looked all over to try and find a plastic o ring and no one had it. i slapped a plain ole rubber o ring on there and WA LA! no more oil stains on my drive way.

these lines are called engine oil cooler lines and is a common problem.you can only change them in pairs,there is also a gasket or 0 rings seals that should be replaced at the same time were the lines connect to the filter housing.
