- About This Product
DescriptionThe engine oil drain plug on your Dodge Turbo Diesel is 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 other B-series engines, the torque is higher).
To remove the plug, use a 9/16" hex-head wrench. We've added a new sealing gasket to the kit. Use a 40 ft.lb. torque specification for this plug.
This kit includes drain plug and reusable gasket.

Fit perfect and a lot of surface area to help it seal to the pan
Oil drain plug

At first I thought the threading on the new drain plug wasn't the same as the original plug. After multiple attempts to hand tighten past the first 3/4 thread and still acting as if the thread match was incorrect I put a wrench to the new plug and tightened it all the way in,I felt quite secure that the new plug will work just fine. Thanks
Better than original

This oil drain plug seems much more durable than the stock. The shoulder is a little thicker and less prone to cracking and leaking like the stock plug. Also included was a new washer.

Heavy duty, well made oil drain plug. Installed it on my GF's '94 2500 Cummins. Remember to follow recommended torque value!

My original plug had seen better days; at some point somebody had welded the top of the plug to try to add rigidity(?) or make it easier to grab with a box end but either way it needed replacing. I can tell just by the weight of this plug that it is very high quality, the magnet is a very nice addition and the gasket that came with it seems to be great quality.

Dealership had replaced plug trying to stop slow leak. Wanted $1700 to replace oil pan. Installed plug last night and this am is the first time my garage floor is dry! Thanks Geno's!

Upon receiving the plug I was debating on even putting it on. The gasket was not seated properly and was torn. Fast forward a month later and the truck is already dripping oil. Everything was torqued to spec, the issue is just a poor gasket that fails.
Owner Response:Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have found that some defective gaskets were received, and have now been inspected and removed from inventory. We sent Mitchell some replacement gaskets and he will follow up on his review once received and used. We have been selling this drain plug gasket for many years and have not seen this come up before.
