That drain plug is similar to what is used on the 2009 Dodge Challenger (I assume my 2015 is similar).

They seal really well as long as they are not over-torqued and are re-usable. The plug in the Challenger is only tightened to 25 lb-ft or 34 N-m (aluminum oil pan).

2015 Renegade Trailhawk - Silver (Glacier Metallic)
2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack
2014 H-D Road King
2009 Dodge Challenger R/T (traded)

@raz-0 , The drain plug has some sort of integrated gasket. I have attached a picture for you to see. The part number associated with the drain plug mentioned here is 06506214AA.

Nice. I got SOOOOO tired of getting crush washers for my cars, glad to see plugs without on something.

I'll probably do my first oil change soon, once I hit 2000 miles, anyone know how to reset the OLM?

I didn't know know there was an oil life meter. I'm clueless. How do I get to that?

It's mentioned in the owners manual. Says something about the dealership will reset it after an oil change, or if the work is performed by someone esle to refer to the EVIC/DID portion of the manual. I couldn't find where it said how to actually reset it though.

From page 163 of users guide:
To reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled
maintenance), refer to the following procedure:
Vehicles Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go™
1. Without pushing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE START/STOP button and
cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position (do not start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times within 10 seconds.
3. Without pushing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE START/STOP button once to
return the ignition to the OFF/LOCK position.

Vehicles Not Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go™
1. Turn the ignition switch to the MAR/RUN position (do not start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the STOP/OFF position.

NOTE:
If the indicator message illuminates when you start the engine, the oil change
indicator system did not reset. If necessary, repeat these steps.

Codev. Why does your factory installed oil filter have what looks like an oil leak?

I immediately loosened the oil filter and drain to make sure they weren't put on too tight. Must have been a drip from that. No cause for concern. I took the pictures after :-D

OK. Thank goodness.

May I suggest: Always cut the UPC from the oil and filter cartons. Tape them down to a sheet of paper and date it WITH the VIN number and keep a running file of these sheets.

Trust me when I say every maker will try to deny warranty if maintenance logs don't exist with proof of purchase of the correct materials. KIA tried this with me and lost big time just on this alone. Time old addage of "if it isn't written down, it wasn't done" sticks. You need those UPC proofs as well.
