Dodge Turbo Diesel engine oil drain plugs are known to develop fractures. Although the design is good - a flush plug that gives maximum ground clearance - the thin shoulder of the plug can give-way if torqued too tight. Torque specification problems are created by confusing information in the "real world." (The correct torque for the Dodge plug is 40 ft. lb., for a Cummins plug in otherB-series engines, the torque is higher).

We were fortunate to have a customer write in and send us a product that he manufacturers to solve the thin-shoulder problem.

To remove the plug, use a 9/16" hex-head wrench. Use a 40 ft.lb. torque specification for this plug.

This kit includes drain plug and reusable gasket.

Have installed the plug yet due to it not being time for an oil change. Good quality and seems to be leaps and bounds better than the factory plus you get the added peace of mind with the magnet!

Y'all sent the wrong plug but I got on the phone and y'all got the right one to me in a couple of days with no fuss and no questions. Excellent customer service and I always try to order from Geno's when I can.

Replaced drain plug with Geno's new machined drain plug, it's nicely made and has a magnet. Plus the replaceable gasket will be easier to maintain be replacing it every annual service.

I was going back and forth about doing the plug or one of the drain valves. I went with the plug because "sometimes they get it right the first time" not saying the valves aren't good...I just would feel better with a plug... quickly shipped and great quality compared to the oem plug...magnet is strong enough that stuck to the side of the fridge.

This is a very high quality part. Machining and threads are perfect. Replacable washer makes a leak proof seal a snap. My only suggestion would be to stamp or laser etch the torque spec on the top surface of the hex. I know that is going to add additional cost to the part but its nice to know how tight a fastener should be from the manufacturer.

Nice replacement but

I'll rate it 4 stars as mine keeps coming loose after only a week or so, three times I torqued it to 40 ft lbs. I know when it's new it seems like it's going to strip as you tighten it as I am guessing the washer has to compress a little. I had one on my 2006 Ram and never had an issue but now on my 2019 it seems to keep coming loose. Kind of a drag to change out the washer now since I just did an oil change.

Nice product but keep an eye on it

I've had to snug the bolt twice since changing my oil about every 1000 miles. Rght now I'm attributing it to the thickness of the gasket, maybe it's compressing? You'll know it's time when you see a drip off the bolt...
Owner Response:Thank you for your review. We have been selling this drain plug with the same gasket for over 15 years and this is the 2nd time I recall this coming up. We do not have a good explanation for this due to it being a couple out many thousands that have been sold over the years. Definitely keep an eye on it and let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
