    I ordered a set of 12 filters with crush rings from Wilkin's Subaru. I believe it was a special price of $72 (less shipping).
    2004 Java Black WRX - so close to stage two, I can taste it.

    a washer is just a round flat piece of metal with a hole in the middle... commonly used with bolts to keep them from spinning or for other reasons. a crush washer in this case goes on your oil drain plug and seals it very well so oil doesnt slowly seep through the seal the bolt makes with the oil pan. it is made to 'crush' when tightened and thats what makes the good seal. of course because of this every time you take the oil drain plug off (when you change the oil) you need a brand new crush washer.

    this is a pic of an oil drain plug with a crush washer already on it.


    here is just a normal washer just for clarification purposes. they come in all shapes and sizes just like nuts and bolts

    i studied french for a while so i know how it is not understanding the translation, although your english is MUCH better than my french ever was.
