    If memory serves, this filter for the 3.4 v6 takes a flare nut fitting not a banjo. When I took my filter off and put it back on make sure you have a flare nut wrench the proper size and start it by hand so you don't strip the threads, snug up the fitting and start the truck, if it leaks tighten the nut until the leak stops with the truck running. That is what I did when my filter did that, when the leak stopped that is when I knew I applied enough torque without striping the threads or the nut. Remember use a flare nut wrench and not a regular wrench, a regular box wrench will strip the flare nut.

    Flare fitting a tiny piece of grit can keep it from sealing.

    Also damage to the flare .

    After years some things you check for without thinking about
