Default Residual oil leak at oil pan drain plug??

I have noticed that I am getting oil residue around the drain plug of my 02 wrx. I always watch where I park and there are no drips on the ground, but there is enough that it always looks like a drop is gonna fall from the pan. I have checked the oil level priodically and even the dealership didn't say anything was wrong when I brought in it for another problem. I did I search, came up with nothing. Guess I'm just worried. Also, the drain plug does have its aluminum washer on there. What if I used a rubber washer on top of that? Would it melt? any help is appreciated. thanks

The washer is supposed to be changed every time the plug is removed.....don't use any rubber washers....bad juju...

Get a new washer at the dealer and see what happens after the next oil change...the 'curved' side of the washer goes against the oil pan....and the plug gets 33ft-lbs

thanks scotty. you always come though with the quick replies . I may have not replaced that washer last time - that could be the answer.

btw, scotty, I installed those sti struts with rs-r springs - there awesome. much improvement from the stock struts w/tanabe springs.

the drop is perfect for me. I got to take some pics to post. still a little space in the rear well, and a little more in the front, but an even drop overall. my lips make the car too priety low though.
