Performed the third oil change on the Dart today at 11k miles, first was at 1k and second was at 6k.
Noticed a small leak from the oil filter, and upon changing it noticed it was barely more than hand tight.
I am fairly sure I tightened it the last time I changed it, so I am not sure if it came loose from vibrations or what.
I am cautious about over tightening the filter as the fitting it goes on is aluminum. What are the torque specs? I am old school and am used to using the hand tight plus 1/2 a turn.

Anyone else have this happen? I will be checking it again in a few weeks.
