Took the car to JL today. Saw this a few hours later around the drain bolt.

its a tamper seal thing. We used them at Sears. When you loosen the plug that breaks and shows the drain plug has been tampered with. Its a cover your butt kinda thing for the shop. Keeps people from draining their oil and coming back with a blown motor and an empty crankcase demanding a new motor.

People always think its a gasket type seal, but its just to show if it has been tampered with. I always used it and a couple people tried to pull the "sears destroyed my engine" bit but as soon as they saw the broken seal they were given the option of leaving or having the police come.

never saw that before.. but it looked like rippy lube put silicone around the gasket to keep it from leaking.

Note:

Buster has Jiffy Lube do his service?

Is he asking for the synthetic oil change or the house brand?

Why would Buster have Jiffy lube do his service?

For some people changing their own oil is difficult, or it could be that he just doesn't have the place to do it.

I've seen that before but I assumed it was some sort of external Loctite to make sure that the plug don't fall out.

Exactly. I was going to do it, but just didn't have the time. Brought them the oil/filter.
