suzuki and kia cars use those crush washers too. little trick i learned to get them off easier is to use one of those pliers that has the little oval shaped opening with teeth,

grab around the washer, and then with the socket turn the drain plug. that gets the washer off about 90% of the time without hassle.

One of the reason for the crush washer is to be able to ''feel'' the tightness...without stripping the threads in the aluminumn pan....

i don't know about bikes or any other cars, but years back chevy started installing helicoils in the aluminum oil pans from the factory. also to help prevent the pans from stripping.

i unfortunately discovered that on a brand new car that had come in for it's first oil change. the plug helicoil must not have been installed properly from the factory, and when i pulled the plug out it came with it and left nothing but a nice straight bore hole in the pan. only seen/heard that happen that one time thought while i worked at chevy.

EXACTLY! The washer isn't so much a "sealing-gasket" as it is a "Torque-Guage"!!!

Wrong drain plug washer?

I think my Suzuki parts are mixed up. They gave me this weird shaped washer almost conical for the oil drain plug. The part number was marked 09168-12002, Desc: Gasket Oil Gall.

Is this the wrong part? Sorry the photo isn't the greatest.

Yup, looks like the right part to me. Put the cone/tapered side in the hole and tighten till its "crushed" flat.

Also, be sure to remove the old one off the bolt. It looks like a washer and will be slightly difficult to remove.

I kinda figure that washer stops me from stripping the threads in the pan, you feel the washer compress, time to quit tighning, needless to say, a stripped pan thread is no fun...

Most auto stores have the aluminum ones for cheap, just need to match the correct size.
