Oil Plug crush ring?
Hey I changed the oil in my wife's 06 H6 last night. I read in the manual that you are supposed to change the crush ring every time. Do you guys do this?
Also I had the front up on ramps (with jackstands under as well), and drained out the oil and removed the filter, spun on a new filter, put the plug back in, and filled it with 5W30 I put 5.8 quarts in, and it was still low.. So I drove it off the ramps and onto level ground.. Still low. So I added the rest of the 6th quart and ran it for a while then let it sit. and it's still low..
Can you drain more than 5.8 quarts out with the nose up in the air? There are no puddles under the car...
Lastly I couldn't find the "scheduled maintenance" book.. what is the recommended OCI?
