    Torque Spec: Oil Drain Plug

    Anyone know what the torque spec is on the oil drain plug?

    I am getting ready to do the first oil change and have the proper crush washer for the plug but I haven't seen the torque spec anywhere. It's not a big deal but I'll set it to the proper torque if I have the information.

    Check out the periodic maintenance sticky thread for the periodic maintenance pdf file.

    It says 33 ft-lb for the drain plug.

    Thanks! I did a search first but nothing came up.

    The periodic maintenance PDF is great. I printed it out for future reference.

    As long as you crush the washer youre ok ... just turn until it gets smushed and then stop.
