I'm not sure I'm reading this right...but you should put a touch of oil on the rubber gasket on the oil filter so it won't bind when you tighten it. That's what my dad used to always tell me anyway. If you recently changed the filter you may want to make sure it isn't leaking from the gasket. If it is from the valve cover area there could be a problem with the gasket, or the valve cover isn't tightened sufficiently.
