Minor Oil Leak Out of Drain Bolt

Just something to watch for. I had it in to the dealer for the first service, so I'm sure they torqued it to spec. It only happened above 1800 miles or so, so 1200 after service. Might have just been buzz related. I tightened it, and haven't had further issues.

Did you mention this issue to your dealer? Probably something they should be made aware of. Maybe a rubber washer could prevent the issue.

avoid rubber washer for the drain bolt, try a metal one, preferably made of copper (softer than iron) and change it (costs a few cents) every time you unscrew the bolt.

Check with dealer. Crush washer aka gasket ring is $2.78. It is aluminum. P/N is on Bob's parts fiche on line as well as others probably.
