Oil Drain Plug Washer

I went to the Jeep parts department to get a new washer (I change it every other time). This is the second oil change for me. The washer that came with the car is a black rubber washer that is recessed in the drain plug. The new washers are copper in color and metal. (See photos).

Re: Oil Drain Plug Washer

Copper washer is for the old type plugs. Rubber will only need replacing if damaged, then you would just get a whole new plug, complete with rubber.

Re: Oil Drain Plug Washer

Thank you for the reply.
Incredibly odd...I went to the dealer this week and he ordered the washer...this is what came in. The plug itself was about $30...absurd when the rubber washer is less than a buck.

My 2001 4.7 limited went 207,000 miles with many oil changes. Never replaced rubber oil plug seal.

Re: Oil Drain Plug Washer

I've never had issues with the rubber seal on my '07 or '14..

A soft metal washer is likely a one-time part.. it'll squish and seal once, but won't squish and seal the next time..

Or you could simply install a Qwikvalve (Fumoto) and fuggedaboudit

Do you know if nipple on qwickvale is flush with oil pan when installed?
Or sticks some into oil pan, preventing full drain.

My concern with the Fumoto valve is that is susceptible to damage when offroad or in rough weather conditions. Valid concern?

Re: Oil Drain Plug Washer

If you get the regular Qwikvalve F106, IIRC it sits flush with the skid plate hole.
I have the one with the short nipple F106S and it is a shade below the skid plate hole but I don't do any "serious" off-roading. If viewed from the front using the skid plate "ribs" as the low point, they are below the ribs.

There are quite a few of us on here that use the Qwikvalve on their GC's. FYI - I've used them on all our vehicles for many years without issue.

Re: Oil Drain Plug Washer

I use the fumoto 106S also, on the 5.7 it sits way up there you would have to rip out the belly pan before you even got close to it. fumoto works well very quick and mess less oil change. No concern at all on the 5.7 but I believe it does hang a little lower on v6 and diesel.

Wk2 hemi oil change

Yes it is called a crush ring. Though not meant to be reused, once in a while I have reused them - on my motorcycles, not on the GC. You have to secure the plug well and in my experience they did not leak.

Re: Oil Drain Plug Washer

Yeah, I tried a F-106S on my EcoDiesel last night and removed it before filling the engine back up with oil. I felt it hung down too low. I posted pics in this other thread.

Oil Drain Plug and Skid Plates...

The OE drain plug is not hard to get off and torques back to 33 ft.lbs.; feels solid. The extra bit the Futmo hung down was just not worth the thought in the back of my mind.
