Yesterday for the first time I went to Jiffy Lube for an oil change.
After half an hour they called me saying that the oil drain plug was leaking oil!
Hopefully in my backpack I had a brand new oil drain plug.

This plastic oil drain plug is really a bad idea.

Yep, that's why that recommend changing at each oil change. I only do it every other oil change.

This is the one I bough a couple weeks ago, still pricey, but you don't have a lot of choice in the matter. Ended up being 62 n change, see how it fits when I do my DP's and 3.0 chargers here soon.

Honestly, going to Jiffy Lube in the first place was a bad idea.

Make sure your oil level is correct since these engines need the 15-minute wait time after stopping, which I'd be willing to bet they don't know about.

Stay very far away from those fast oil change places, look up any body shop or auto service shop. Places like that will charge you more, but you,ll have less issues because they know what they're doing.

I feel better about spending 62 bucks for mine. :)
