    I an not sure what is wrong, but I noticed that my oil is dripping from the bold you undo to drain your oil. Its not over tightened, but its is really tight, could it be stripped or something?

    Remove the bolt and replace the plastic washer underneath it and retighten it. Any auto parts store will have them. Don't forget to replace the oil that drains out.....and you might as well do the filter to.:D

    Do you reply with anything thats useful? The guys asking a question, if you don't have the answer, don't answer.

    Carefully remove the bolt, get a new bolt and plastic washer as stated, change oil and filter, and drink a beer. :laugh:

    No question is a stupid question, thats how things are learned. Just because its a simple question doesn't mean it requires worthless replys. :)

    If the washer gets scored or chewed up it won't seal as well as it should. They are real cheap, just pick up a few of them while you are there and throw them in your tool box. You won't have to worry about it for a long time.

    Alrighty, well I just checked it, and changed my oil while I was down there. The washer had cracked, and was slowly dripping, maybe a small 3 inch spot a day, but it has stopped now, I bought a pack of 6 washers for 1.29 at checker today.

    Thanks!
