>>25614877
The metal and rubber washers are based, retardo. Not like you would know or anything.
>>
>>25615073
they're good for hydraulics but I dunno what purpose they serve on a drain plug
>>
>>25615081

To stop it from leaking, duh.
>>
>>25614765
I've reused the same one like 5 times.
it hasn't started leaking
>>
>>25615073
>>25615195
I'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.
>>
>>25614765
Same, 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.
>>
>>25614618
That's clearly not at a valvoline.
>>
>>25614761
Bolt installed, threads removed.
>>
>at valvoline
Wut. I just thought valvoline was an oil brand. Its a shop also?

I 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
>>
>>25614765
I 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
>>
>>25620407
Somebody's fucked the thread and made bigger ones + an oversize plug
