People using this EZ Oil Drain, no issues with leaks, or it accidentally getting bumped and losing all your oil? Very interesting product.DiscountRaja wrote: ↑ I would recommend getting an OEM filter from the dealer. For the vehicles I change oil on (Lexus and Mazda), the OEM filters from the dealer were actually cheaper than most filters sold elsewhere. And, if you plan on keeping the vehicle for awhile, you can ask if they will give you an extra 10-15% off if you buy multiple filters at one time. I have bought 10 at a time, and most recently 20 for my new car.
Regarding the crush washer, you can also buy those from the dealer. They are usually pretty cheap and then you don't have to worry about a mismatched size when you change oil. Or, buy 1 and take it to home depot or something and buy more there. And yes, it is good practice to change this every time you change oil. If you don't want to deal with the drain plug and crush washer, you can buy an EZ Oil Drain Valve (or Fumoto Drain Valve).
When I have gone into my local Honda dealer to buy crush washers, they usually just give me one, rather than doing up an invoice for a $1 part.
The second rule of RFD is, you DO NOT talk about RFD.
