Default Napa oil drain plug gasket part number(wrx)

NAPA drain plug gasket-
7041963


If you have NAPA, this is another option besides the dealer for the oil drain plug.

I bought 10 a year ago, no problems. I have just passed 57k miles on my 02.

instead of crush washers you can use a reusable copper washer. Better yet, get a fumoto valve

A fumoto valve wouldve killed my motor a long time ago. Theyre nice..but not for everybody. Anyone want to see what my skid plate looks like? (I'm on RA skid plate #2)

I had purchased several OEM gaskets a few years ago and ran out.

So I figured I would try out the Napa ones. The website says a box of 10 is $1.39. I called the store to verify they had them and they told me that was the price for each and I had to buy 10x at once.

I think that's less slightly less than the dealer (IIRC I paid like $1.75-2.00 for the OEM ones), but still highway robbery.

Anyone get them at their local as a box of 10 or singles for the listed prices?

Dealer cost is highway robbery. I was floored when I heard how expensive they are.

Really? I pay $.68 each at the dealer by me. $2.00 is rediculous.

My local dealer is worse. They know that most do not know what parts cost and so they can and do jack-up their prices.

Fumoto oil drain valves can be purchased from: http://www.quickoildrainvalve.com/

Yeah that's only about $.08 above cost. Bravo to your local parts department for hooking you up.

I dont think I've ever paid for one....of course I have reused the one on my car for 75k miles now with no leaks....I wonder why so many of you are bitching about paying for them

@ uncle Scotty

Mechanical note: Crush washers give a secure seal to your drain plug AND prevent you from threading your drain plug to far into your oil pan to cause damage to the internal threads. Just because you've reused it for 75k and have no leaks doesn't mean it's still working. Keep using it and when your drain plug strips out of the bottom of your oil pan, just remember that it could have all been avoided for 2 bucks.

d000000000000000d.....i bet that you dont know that I use a torque wrench on my drain plug and that the torque for that is 33ft-lbs and the crush washer is there to seal the maybe not quite flat pan to the flat bolt flange...and it wont do **** for idiots who torque the gorilla snot outa **** and rip the threads outa the ****ing pan being 't00pid


oh yeah....if you use a torque wrench on yer pan and it has never been overtorqued......the gasket is usually irrelevant and it wont leak without it

....and i tend to rattle on sometimes...but....anyway.......that's THAT

i have 3 torque wrenches that I use quite often....way more often than many people who call themselves 'mechanics' do

1/4" 20-200in-lbs

3/8" 10-90ft-lbs

1/2" 20-150ft-lbs


and I need a 4th that will go to ~220ft-lbs


and I dont call myself a mechanic....the FAA does....twice, in fact

I have reused the same crush washer for the last 72,000 miles and had a problem. I don't over torque the plug which is the key. If you strip a thread, then you over torqued, it is that simple....

I'm sure you've also seen ones come in that private shops use where there is oil leaking everywhere. Stock crush washers for me and stock oil filter.

Before I worked for subaru I didn't even use one on mine for 8 years and never had leaks. I've seen leaks as well. Guess it depends on how your pan is and if you're cranking on it as well.
