An oil sump drain plug is a threaded pin with a head, sometimes hollow and with a built-in valve. It serves for pressurization of a drain hole in the oil sump.

5 operation tips for the oil sump drain plug
  1. The threaded plug of oil sump should be tightened with a torque indicated by the manufacturer.
  2. The part and its mounting seat should be cleaned from dirt and rust before screwing the plug into the oil sump.
  3. Use the magnetic oil sump drain plugs, if it is possible. They lower the risk of premature engine wear and serve as an additional indicator of its condition.
  4. If the thread in the oil sump is worn out, a special repair kit can be purchased and the thread renewed.
  5. The gasket of the oil sump drain plug is a consumable. It should be replaced during every car maintenance. There is a risk of significant oil leakage if used components are installed.

Defects of the oil sump drain plug, their causes and signs

  1. Thread stripping. Usually it is caused by excessive tightening torque during installation. It is easily detected by trying to unscrew the drain plug: if the thread is stripped, the plug spins in its seat.
  2. Gasket wear. Those who install used gaskets when replacing the oil face this problem. Leakiness of the connection manifests itself in oil consumption increase. Leakage of the lubricant can be detected during visual check.
  3. Corrosion. Influence of moisture and dirt to the component promotes its formation. Oil stains under the car after parking may indicate it, as well as many other defects.
