Sump plug washer
Do you always replace this when changing your oil? I didn't bother last time, and think it may be the reason, I have an oil leak since I did an oil change.
Yes I do.
If you buy a Vauxhall oil filter, there is one in there for you anyway.
The sump plug gasket is copper and will squash when the sump plug is put back on tight.
The sump plug washer is only about 10p on its own.
24p out of Vauxhall it is not going to break the bank.You dont have to change the washer every time you change your oil, I do change it every time just for peace of mind.
Yeah I'm not bothered about how expensive it is, that wasn't what I asked. Just out of laziness I didn't bother. Now I'm thinking this is why it's leaking. I'll give it a proper look tomorrow.
i noticed halfords sell new bolts and washers. so i thought id try one. does the job. Before that i owned the car 2 and a bit years and never replaced it.
