[DML] Re: Drain Plug crush washer

In a pinch you can reuse the old washer if it isn't all munched up. A
large local auto parts store may have an assortment that you can pick
one from. You can also use a tiny bit of silicone sealer (sensor
safe!) too. Recheck the oil filter, maybe you missed it. It could be
scotch-taped to the filter or the box. Worst case you reuse the old
one, it leaks and you replace it when you get another. If you are
quick you won't lose much oil and you can use one finger to stop the
oil while you replace the washer.
