It's still leaking fluid, though, so I guess I'll get it up on ramps and try to clean it up and tighten it better. If that doesn't work, is there a more permanent fix? I'm not willing to keep tightening that stupid bolt every 3 weeks.
No, generally once it is tightened you should be ok. The issue you have is probably that the O-ring is damaged. You'll need to get the O-ring replaced.
