Did I install it right
Ive done all the oil changes on my vehicle myself and never had an issue, used the same process. So NO i did not install it incorrectly. My thought is that the filter is slightly too tall and gets crushed down and cracks.
And yes, I went to Canadian tire, bought a FRAM filter and put it in. Just for fun since I was buying oil stuff I went across town and bought a NAPA GOLD filter for next time. Unfortenately I did not listen to my gut when I decided to keep the FRAM filter in anyway. This was the result. Never buying FRAM for any vechicle ever again.
You can use a FRAM filter all you like
