Hi everyone,


I have a FFH '16 and for the last 3 times I just had the oil changes done by the dealership. I've been doing oil changes for all my cars for many years. I just did not want to crawl down there and removed the flash guard. Now I decided to do it. 

The question I have is that I heard Fusion uses rubber gasket for the oil drain plug instead of crush washers. Does that rubber gasket need to be replaced every oil change? I bought a box of 10 by Dorman. I just wanted to have them just in case I need to replace it. Please advise.

Thank you.

Not sure what the correct technical answer is, but if you already have ten of them, why not just go ahead and put ma new one on each time. Your good for another 100,00 miles based on the 10k mile oil change mileage for the FFH.
