When the draining oil slows to a drip, wipe off the area around the drain plug and reinstall it by first tightening it by hand.
Finish tightening the drain plug with a 19 mm box end wrench or socket wrench.
Only tighten the drain plug until it is snug. Over-tightening the oil drain plug can strip or crack the oil pan—a very costly error. You can always tighten the drain plug more later.
If using a torque wrench to tighten the drain plug, set the torque to : 29-41 N-m; 22-30 ft-lbs
Wipe off the area around the drain plug one more time with a rag or towel.
