Tightening torque :
34.3 ~ 44.1N.m (3.5 ~ 4.5kgf.m, 25.3 ~ 32.5lb-ft)

I wonder how many get overtorqued on this one!

Yes, using crush washers it is easy to over torqued.

It it very important that your properly tighten the drain plug or you will have a leak. The drain plug washer/seal must also be replaced every oil change. If you over tighten the plug you can smash the drain plug washer/seal an can leak. I have attached a couple picture of this.

That's got to be a pretty old drain plug washer. Overtightened for sure but I'm thinking it has been used a couple of changes. Am I right.

Be careful with the torques. Too many oil plug holes are getting stripped these days.

Is that wet or dry torque. Torques are usually spec'ed for dry fasteners. Most oil drain plugs will have oil on them. I always decrease the torque 10% for a lubricated fastener.

My recommendation is to purchase the Fumoto Oil Valve http://www.qwikvalve.com/?gclid=CI7R...FUyb7Qodb3KqYg

I put one on mine the first time I changed oil. This makes all future oil changes so simple and does away with the drain plug altogether.

I just put one of these on my car the one with the nipple to connect a hose to drains right into an old oil container.
