By the way, in replacing the plug, I believe there is a crush washer as with the oil drain plug.

I'm working in limited space (as in my apt's garage, the spot next to mine is almost always empty when Im working on my car tho) and since I now live an an apt I had to get rid of a bunch of my toys, including my hydrolic jack so I can pretty much only go as high as the factory scissor jack will go, I'm missing that extra foot or so right about now. I was using 16mm (17 maybe, it was in that area, I know its still attached to the ratchet at the moment) socket and my 1/2" drive ratchet, no cheater bar tho, like I said I had to get rid of a bunch of my toys due to lack of room. Then again if I still had everything I did a yr ago I'd have impact tools and wouldnt need to worry about it. Well since the car's currently nice and warm (been driving for the last oh 3-4 hrs) and its 3am Im gonna go give it one more try,

I hope you're not crawling under there with just scissor jacks! They make very good, lightweight, plastic ramps now. That's the safest way.
LOL not the way Ive been jerking at the thing! Im using jack stands, but last time I went looking for them the lightweight ramps dont set the car up very high, maybe a foot, I havent found any taller ones that werent steel

So is my car supposed to be more sluggish? Shifts a LOT better (doesnt sit redlining, doesnt shift hard, and the grinding sound is gone completely) but takes longer to go thru the gears
