For the drain plug
There's two different plugs
Swap the gasket over to your plug

Yep, I'm an idiot just seen it what's the hard plastic white one for? is it for the drain plug too?
 






There are 2 different drain plugs depending on the 1 you have will depend on which gasket you use throw the other 1 away or save it

Ok thanks for your reply sorry for wasting yalls time
 












Just the fact that you are wondering is not a waste of time you wanna do the job right that's a good thing
 






You're definitely not a waste of time
trust me, ive wasted lots more time ;) ;) ;) all good, thats why were all here! anyways, i wasnt much of a help... just took up space on the page🤣
 






I did mine few months back. Didn't help my oil leak. It came with the 2 as well. Since I use a drain valve I put them in the parts box.
 






Thought I would ask in here rather than start a new thread.

I'm about to drop the pan as part of the oil change to check for timing component debris.

I have a new oil pan gasket from Fel-Pro (OS30687R) and I'm wondering if there is a specific tightening sequence when putting it back on?

I believe the torque required is 71 to 88 inch pounds, so I'll go to 80.

Can't find a sequence anywhere so figured it would be best as pictured? Or does it not matter?

Cheers
