Backstory: Determined I had a lifter issue - had to fight to get Sir Walter to deal with it. (Literally had to call the service manager to address an attitude problem with the Service adviser... & only took it to a dealer because it was under warranty...)

So the lifters got replaced, and they changed the oil - (read below for what I just found...) and the radiator fluid. (They also had to change the belts as radiator fluid got on the belts...) (this was a week ago)

SO I was pulling into the garage this afternoon and noticed a HUGE puddle of a caramel colored substance... see attached pic. Jacked the car up to find that the Oil Filter was not tight... I was able to hand tighten it almost a full turn (an I don't have the worlds biggest forearms.) So I have a 1/2 quart of 5w30 on the ground.)

What are the chances that this filter just worked its way loose? (Never had it happen before on a L series engine.

The other pic is a disconnected rubber hose labeled "NC" that hangs down next to the transmission and is missing the clamp. Any idea what this hose goes to?

Typically oil filter wont back off like that. If your was that loose it was barely on when it left the dealer. Lucky to catch it.
