And also as Ashman suggested, pick up a new drain plug before you pull the old one. Be sure to use a new copper washer on the drain plug with each oil change. The Mann filters the PartsShop sells come with the proper sized washer and O-rings, in my experience, the ones at the local parts store only have O-rings no washers.
