I torque mine to 30, no issues. Also yes there is a washer, they call it a crush washer but its not really one. You can use it more than once, some ppl flip it over. I used mine about a year before swapping it out.
Yeah if its been on there for 12k that should be fine. I wont be leaving mine a whole year again because it was a pain to get off the bolt but it wasnt leaking oil. Use Hyundai/Kia filter and the dealer will have some washers too. Mine thinks these parts are made of gold though so I got my filters and washers on ebay.
Also the cap wrench you need is 15flute 80mm, its tight in there for adjustable wrench.
and 17mm on the drain plug.
my car, (honda) is notorious for having stripped oil pan drain plug people don't even flinch when it's stripped, they just re-thread.
I know german cars' bolts torque specs are "guten'tight" :P but what about hyundai??? (well i'll be working on 12 elantra) is there specific torque for oil drain plug? or can i just go by 25-30 (of course i can, but i would like to know if there's any info available)
additional question : is there such a "crush washer" in the drain plugs of hyundai that is supposed to be replaced every drain??
i can't sleep i have to figure this out before i get to it lol anyone having similar symptoms?
