    I replaced my oil drain plug with one off Amazon that had a magnet. It has a permanent washer on it, and I have not been putting the crush washer on it since i installed it and no leaks.

    No experience with the 2020s, so its hard for me to say if you are okay or not. Maybe keep an eye on it and make sure it isn't leaking.

    Mostly electrical shit that nobody cares about.
    Really wish the forum had a consensus on fluids. I do like your list though. Mine is pretty similar:
    1. Mobil 1 0W-20 Advanced Fuel Economy/Extended Performance and Mobil 1 M1C-251A even though they're like $15 a pop.
    2. OEM ATF WS. (Good reasoning. Since a complete flush is so difficult, it doesn't make sense to mix in an aftermarket fluid.)
    3. Mobil Delvac 1 Gear Oil 75W-90. This stuff is cheap from Summit Racing.
    4. Ravenol J1C1003 SAE 75W Manual Transmission Fluid - MTF-3 Full Synthetic. (Did this one at 15k. Currently at 40k and have had zero issues with engage/disengage in all temperatures.)

    No one can agree, too many varying opinions here

    Last spring I did the auto tranny drain and fill. Replaced around 3 quarts of the ATF. Tried to do it again and found that the 24 mm socket would slip off the fill plug. The hex head of the plug isn't very tall and I think my socket doesn't have much bite due to the bevel. Is there a special socket or wrench that folks use? Or should I grind down the end of the socket to remove the bevel?
    Thanks, Tim

    Agreed. Thank you @Amanelot , I just crossed the 100k mile mark on my '17 and this has been, and will continue to be an invaluable resource along the way!

    I’m an idiot and yanked these 3 wires by accident while changing the spark plugs. Am I in over my head or you think I can fix this? I am pretty good with electrical but don’t want to mess anything up working around the engine. Also anyone got the correct order of these? :frusty:

    Does anyone have recommendations on where to troubleshoot both low beams going out? I pulled out one of them and it's not burnt out. Should I check the fuse box next?
