I used a 24" crescent wrench the first time I pulled mine, then installed an S washer on it so that when it compressed the washer I could stop tightening and not have to worry about leaks. Works great.

Cool. Take pics and let us know how it goes, and watch closely for leaks!

Chrome, what is an "S" washer? Although the "E-Z drain thing sounds cool, too.

When I changed my oil in the PT (I decided to start changing the oil myself in all my cars, due to an extremely loose drain plug by a shop I had trusted for years), the plug was obviously not tightened to 20 foot pounds. It was simply way too tight. And when I checked the drained oil for particles and crap, there were two semi-circular bits of metal that looked exactly like drain-pan female threads. So I tightened the plug to about 20 ft. pounds (like Chrysler says) and, fortunately, it was all good.

However, I'd like to baby it in the future--like using your "S" washer--or the E-Z plug ....

Tim
