HI guys, I did a search here and could'nt find anything, closest thing I found was on nasioc but something just doesnt sound right about it. Could someone please confirm which way the crush washer goes on the drain plug?

This is the thread on nasioc

The flat part should be against the oil pan and the round (crush) part against the bolt.

I would rethink that statement


TIA

Yep,
The crush washer is supposed to go spring side tword the oil pan. But I've seen cars with no crush washers or used crush washers and they lose no oil.

time to treat yourself to one of the cheapest mods that will ever make you happy if you change your own oil - about $25.
