I had problems seating the oil canister and then found out when I spun the can before tightening the bolt the oil did not leak. I always replaced the oil can gasket and drain pan gasket. I know that you can soften a used copper gasket but, I always have many extra gaskets. I also purchased forty oil filter gaskets. I do not raise the car to change the oil but, I wish I could have a two post car lift in my garage. I replaced the original oil pan plug with a new hex headed magnetic oil plug. I do not drive my 101 Sprint Veloce very much less than 25 miles per year and will change the oil soon.
