Default Re: What BMW is Getting To Change Your Oil.

For instance. A year or two ago I went out and bought a new rubber faced oil drain plug washer at NAPA ($4) in case I ever need it, considering the opinions of others on the subject. Since all of the oil sumps on my vehicles remain clean and dry I havnt used it but its there should I find one is leaking while I do an oil change.

And now for an observation and a little math.

I do not believe I have ever in my 61 years had to buy or change an oil drain plug washer. The sump is always clean and dry in my experience. Lets consider our two cars. The wifes car is 13 years old and has averaged about 3 oil changes a year. My car is 8 years old and averages 2 oil changes a year. thats 39 + 16 washers X $4 a washer is $220! $220!!!

And that goes back just 13 years! If you went back 40 years its more like $800.

I bought a package of crush washers at the Honda car dealer (same washer).
It was a pretty good number of washers and pretty cheap.

I've looked up Toyota rubber faced washers on Amazon and they're a dollar each. NAPA rib ripped me off!
