One warm afternoon, I was changing the oil and filter.
Not paying too much attention, as its one of the easiest

After I finished, I started the car and immediately noticed
oil all over the garage floor. Seemed I stripped the oil filter
adapter (that little unit the oil filter screws onto).

I had to replace it. A new one cost me 50 bucks and
took me all of ten minutes to replace.

You may have a different problem, I hope you figure it
out soon.
