Has anyone changed their oil with one of these installed yet? I would like to know what kind of debris is caught.Hey everyone,
I just picked up a magnetic oil drain plug for my 08 G6 and figured to post the info. I purchased it from O'Reilly's auto parts for 6.75 or so.
It is a Motormite 65372
M12 - 1.75
Bar code number on the back 037495 653725
Hope this helps!
I wonder, if this is truly a step in cleaning your oil why don't our cars come equipped with these little items ? Just thinking out loud.I just changed my oil on my minivan that has the same plug in it. It is just a metallic sludge that is thinly covering the magnetic tip. I thought the filter would/should catch this stuff, but I guess not. I would think, any time you can remove these particles from your oil, would be a positive thing. Next time I change it I will post a pic.
It's the same reason that we have to replace other stuff with better stuff. Cars that come from the factory are built as cheap as possible, and as fast as possible. If the consumer doesn't know about something that is better, GM will not use the better product. Over time it will cost more money to build the car, and it's just a form of cost cutting.I wonder, if this is truly a step in cleaning your oil why don't our cars come equipped with these little items ?
