William,

Why not? They're built to take it.

This problem would never happen if people would just do 3 things correctly when they change their oil:

1) If the head of the bolt is even slightly worn replace it!!!

2) Make sure the washer that is supposed to be on the plug is there when you put the plug back in.

3) Don't over torque it when you put it in, instead of a big ratchet, extension and a socket use a short combo wrench you have to be real gorrila to overtorque it with a little combo wrench.

Now if I just had a solution for the stubborn oil filter!!!!

Does the euro 190 have a spin on replacement or a cartridge that fits in a cannister?

For Spin on units, the reluctance to come off is often the same overtorqueing problem. However, if you collapse the top you'll need to get right down to the flange end where the threads are. I only had a few that I had to dismember to remove if I could get at the base flange.

There is a special that plops down on the filter, and you use a 22mm socket and ratchet to spin it off.

Apparently the "quicky lube" goobered plug syndrome has spawned a new industry .

Check out the "temporary" and oversized plug selection.
