How tight to do up sump plugs?
A question for one of the easiest things to do on a car.
Put a new washer in and tightened. Not much, but the same as I alwasys do.
Drips of oil!
So, since the washer is copper, can I apply a bit more force?
Sand both surfaces lightly first just to make sure there is no cack or high spots.
I used to do my fiesta sump plug up feckin tight - that had a copper washer on it too.
yeah, its meant to be squashed a bit.
I just did it up as much as I could with my 1/2" dr ratchet.
