It's actually a very long story, and you can read all about in the links below, but bottom line was the shop I had the oil change done at double gasketed the filter and the gasket failed catastrophically. I blew all the oil out of the engine and into the fan in about 30 seconds. The result was oil all over everything in the engine compartment. I even had to replace the hood mat.
