Drained the oil yesterday . Wished to replace the rubber gasket on the drain plug .

All the online parts places list the drain plug as 14 -1.5 . Wrong , it is 12 - 1.75 .

O'Reilly store in town found the gasket for me . :-)

Best wishes , :-)

My Cruze has 106K on it and I've neither rounded off the drain plug or replaced the original O-ring. Just FWIW.

I was experiencing a leak , either at the oil filter plastic " cap " or at the drain plug . I was trying to be pro-active .

Thanks , :-)

Drain plug washers are the one thing I always get at the dealer.

I figured it was just an o-ring . No , it was a " flat " rubber washer . We will see how well it works ......

Is the sonic the car with the 10 or 12mm bolt and it's straight up and down? If so I have rounded so many of those off at Walmart. Those bolts are made of some super soft metal. We always replace them with a dorman plug, they never strip like the OEM ones.
