I read in my manual that the drain plug should be replaced after oil changes. Is there any need for this? I'm going on my third change now and still using the original plug. My question is how long can i use the original drain plug?

Thanx<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

You can use the same drain plug for the life of your car. Just make sure that you clean any gunk from it before you put it back in. There are drain plugs out there with a magnetic tip on them. Those are pretty good because they will hold any small metal particles that may end up in your oil. That take care of your question?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Wow. I've never heard of changing your plug everytime. I HAVE heard of changing the crush washer on the plug, but not the whole plug. I agree with driver, the magnetic tipped plugs are pretty cool. A lot of oil and trans pans now have little magnets in 'em too.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Yeah , I just re-checked my manual and it just says to change the washer not the entire plug. So now how many times do you think i could go until i needed to use a new washer? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

You don't really HAVE to change the crush washer, but you can get it at your dealership or most parts stores. Just tell 'em what kinda car you have and they'll give you the right washer if they have it. I try to change mine every oil change<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

You have to change the crush washer everytime other wise it will leak. Go to the auto parts store, ask for oil drain plugs seals, get a drain plug seal that has a 1/2" hole and one that has a rubber seal vulcanized to the washer. You can reuse these everytime, I have used it for over a year.

What he is using is a Honda Civic filter, it has a larger compacity. I use the Purolator Pure One oil filter.

He uses a Honda filter becuse it fits the Hyundai also..

They are the same spec. Go to any auto parts store, and ask for a filter for a beta.. then as for one for just about any Honduh.

the spec of the filters are the same.. Personally, I would NEVER put ANY Honduh crap on my car.. ;)

No offense to any Honduh People on here.. :):)
