    Drain for the oil when you change the filter.

    connect it (1 end to the nipple of the drain and the other end into a 12oz soda bottle) when you pull the filter, will save you lots of cleanup

    Every damn time I change the oil I take that plug out and when I go to put it back on I drop it and it falls to the inside of my skid plate. :annoyed:

    This last time I could not find it after dropping it.


    It really isn’t needed as long as you make sure to put some kind of cup under that hole when you take the filter off.

    Oil pressure sender, if its unplugged you should have a check engine light.

    Lol I love how he's talking about an electrical connector and y'all start talking about putting cups under the oil filter. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

    Mostly stock with a few minor mods.
    Does check engine light come on when you turn the key before starting it? If not, your light could be burned out or removed by previous owner.

    I'd get a code scanner and see if anything is amiss.
