>>25614618nothing wrong with thatare you a wrenchlet by any chance?
>>25614636no but u r hyuk hyuk
>>25614618Is this being installed or removed?
>>25614618>buy used car>do oil change>copper gasket ring is basically non existentwhy don't grease monkeys ever replace them? They're like 1 cent a pop
>>25614636when you bent the spanner>>25614765for most people it doesn't really do anything
>>25614765I always replace themt. grease monkey
>buy multipack of drain plug washers>2 copper washers, different sizes but both fit fine>1 piece of shit nylon washer>1 retarded ass metal/rubber combo thing
>>25614877The metal and rubber washers are based, retardo. Not like you would know or anything.
>>25615073they're good for hydraulics but I dunno what purpose they serve on a drain plug
>>25615081To stop it from leaking, duh.
>>25614765I've reused the same one like 5 times.it hasn't started leaking
>>25615073>>25615195I've tried both the nylon and the metal/rubber ones on previous oil changes. They both leaked. The copper ones never leak. Maybe they're good for cars with plastic oil pans. I dunno. They suck balls for steel pans. Copper washers are the best.
just buy one of these chinksets of copper washers, one box will last a fucking lifetime and it's like 2 cents per washer
Check torque specs on your drain plugs, usually they're 3-5 ugga-duggas.
>>25614765Same, but mine was missing when i bought the car and the po said he just changed the oil himself. What gets me though is the filter for this car includes a new plug washer, he just didn't install it so it was leaking like a motherfucker.
>>25614618That's clearly not at a valvoline.
>>25614761Bolt installed, threads removed.
>at valvolineWut. I just thought valvoline was an oil brand. Its a shop also?
>>25614765I had to reuse mine, because both the OEM one that I've bought and the one that came with Hengst oil filter, were one size smaller than the drain plug.
>>25614765>car shop charges 25 bucks for "small material" like degreaser, washers, gloves and paper towels
>>25614765I just re-use it and put a tiny coat of non-hardening form-a-gasket on it, gets sticky but doesn't dry and cure like rtv. Never have had one leak
>>25620407Somebody's fucked the thread and made bigger ones + an oversize plug
