Oil change (leaking oil)

So I received a free oil change from a local car wash lube place a few yrs ago and decided to use it on my 06 Type S. The service guys tries to sell me a power steering flush for $129.00, I decline and tell him just do the oil change.

About 15 minutes later, car is finished, and I ask the tech how hard the oil filter was to remove. He says, very easy to take off, I took it off from the top. I then asked, what about oil draining down onto the chassis. He says, don't worry I wiped it completely clean. Of course, we all know that's a LIE. I check the floor on my garage floor the next day and its dripping everywhere. 2 days later, still dripping. I got under the car last night and wiped what I could until I jack the thing up.

I checked the level and its at the second line so I have enough oil. My question is this, How do you prevent the leaking in the future as I am doing my own oil changes for now on?

Thanks.

Prolly hose it off or spray brake cleaner all over . It's hard to get every drip. The position of the oil filter isn't in an ideal place.

You need to double up on a few paper towels wipes underneath the filter before removal. Put newspaper on the ground as well, best of luck its always a mess.

Get a deflector on to guide the oil somewhere else when you take out the filter.

Some of the oil gets into the frame and like to play around in there.

If you do get some in there, spray brake cleaner and use an air compressor to get most of it out.

I've tried wrapping the frame rails with some plastic bags with really good results. Brake cleaner helps also.

lol thats exactly what I do, except with a flattened cardboard box. I kind of welcome it in a way coating the underneath with oil will keep the rust away.

OgLOc is an unknown quantity on c-rsx
Theres a few companies that make formable funnels . Also you could get a long sharp punch and pop a hole in the bottom.
