    yes it has a crush gasket that you are supposed to change every oil change. Not many change it tho.

    I've never changed mine... I know you should, but... have just never remembered to buy a bunch. If I remember I'll measure it up next time and buy a bunch....but I'll probably just forget again....

    Just make sure you have a gasket.....

    I never change mine either. No leaks. I just check it and as long as it looks good,ie; not beat up or torn I say use it. I just snug the plug up with a ratchet and socket. If you don't have a good feel for this you might want to use a torque wrench. Check specs in the service manual online.

    I never replaced mine either, just orque it properly and you should be fine. in case you have a small leak, then get a new one, get a CLEAN pan, empty your oil, install the new one, reuse your oil.
