AHHH, Dealership is too far from my place... uhmm what if I goto home depot? I mean, if I have the spec. for the washer, I should be able to get it from there right? I only know that my plug is 17mm... how do I calulate that to formulate the washer equation? hehe Need height for washer too...

Hmmm..... are you guys sure that the oil plug comes with a washer on our WRX?? I've changed my own oil too my self for the first time on my WRX like two weeks ago, but I didn't see any washer. I tried to look everywhere just incase I thought I might have dropped it somewhere, but I didn't find one. I even drained out the bucket full of old oil to see if it had dropped in there but nothing turned out.
I've screwed the oil plug back in without any washer assuming that it didn't have one, but do I need one?? I've been checking under the car every single day to see if I am getting any leaks but there isn't any leaks and everything seems to be good.
I am just curious because I thought I was the only one thinking that it didn't come with a washer.
Are you guys 100% sure that our WRX comes with a washer??

Yes.
But if you put just the plug on w/o a washer and you have no leaks, then you're okay. Maybe get one for next time.

The washer will probably be stuck on the drain plug. It is hard to see it on the drain plug but it's on there. Like djerickd said, you'll probably need to use a tool to remove it. Just go to the dealership and buy a bunch of them. I bought 10 for like $7 or something.

Yeah, the first time you change the oil, you'll probably have a hard time spotting the crush washer. It is usually painted over and looks like part of the drain plug. If you look closely, though, you'll see that there is a raised edge between the threaded part and the outside edge of the head. I just used a small flathead screwdriver to pry it off. A little less dangerous than a razor blade.

The crush washers are special because they are double-layered with a curve in the top part that is meant to be compressed when you tighten the drain plug. It allows a much better seal than you could get otherwise. You may not have any problems if you don't use one, but it is always better to be safe than sorry.

you'll never need a crush washer (or wrench) to do an oil change again.
