Oil Pan Drain Plug, Cleaning Threads on Plug and Oil Pan When Changing Oil
Engine oil leaks are found after engine oil is changed.
This condition may be caused by contaminants on the threads of the oil drain plug or the oil pan (if both are not cleaned before installing and tightening
the oil drain plug to the proper torque).
After draining engine oil:
Clean any contaminants from both oil drain plug and oil pan drain hole threads.
Carefully inspect drain plug and oil pan threads for damage.
If drain plug is damaged, replace it along with drain plug seal.
Replace either drain plug with seal, or drain plug seal only (if available separately), as necessary.
Always see ETKA for the latest part(s) information.
In some cases the drain plug comes with an integral (permanent) seal and must be replaced as a unit.
Never install a drain plug sealing ring from another application (always consult ETKA for the appropriate drain plug / sealing washer combination).
Install oil drain plug and hand-tighten first. Then, using a torque wrench, tighten to the proper specification as listed in the table below. See Required
