What would couse a recondisitioned Mazda b2200 long block to leak oil from filter when trying to start or while running besides the oil filter?
Perhaps you didn't tighten the filter enough or you
over-tightened it and the gasket popped out. Also check to make
sure the old gasket came off. Good Luck and Remember.
Change Your Mind, Not Your Oil.
Use the First In Synthetic Motor Oil's.
