Hi every body,

Wondering if anyone else has had a problem with oil loss from the oil filter? I have a L200 4 Work with 23k miles on the clock. Bought it new 14 months ago. Had the 12,500 service done at my local non franchise garage who has serviced all my previous vehicles & who I trust.This week with 23k on the clock after a very short journey reversed into my drive and noticed a trail of oil, looked underneath my van and even more oil. There is a garage 400 yards away so drove straight there. The garage replaced the oil & oil filter & thankfully every thing is OK, the oil filter wasn't lose. I have spoken to my non franchise garage who has come across this problem before, not on a L200 as he doesn't service any apart from mine.
He says it's not a faulty oil filter but some valve in the engine that causes the filter to expand a blow the seal as its not working properly, can't remember the name. Obviously I don't want this to happen again. Has there been a recall that I have missed, is there a problem with this engine? Any information would be gratefully recieved.

Many thanks
