Eliminate the concern when you change the oil. These work great. And no the oil was not pitch black on that oil change. Dark yes, black no. I have the oil analysis report in hand that the oil was still good and will post the info within the next day.

I am a grey hair so I have been changing oil for way too many years. My 2SS is the only car I have ever owned that had a leaky oil plug. Last year I did not know to change the rubber gasket so it leaked a little all year. I just changed the oil this weekend with a new GM gasket and the damn thing is leaking. Yes, I cleaned both surfaces.

Anyone else having this issue with this simple task?

Snug with a six inch ratchet, using one hand.

Never had a leak.

I backed it off and tightened to 18 ft-lbs and it still leaks. Rosner Chevrolet had the plug with new seal PN 11562588 for 3.34 each so I bought a new one. I will try the ole replace old with new without loosing too much oil once it cools down.
