Wipe off and replace the oil pan drain plug. Use a moderate amount of force, but do not over-tighten the bolt.

You can always tighten the bolt more if you notice oil leaking from the plug. A cracked oil pan, however, is a much more expensive repair.

Position the oil drain pan underneath the oil filter.
