my oil drain plug was leaking so i went to Bmw and bought a new plug and washer. Installed it (no free spinning all is tight) last night and all seemed well, this morning i saw a small puddle again and the same leak at the bottom of the drain plug is back...what's going on here do i need a bigger bolt? weld the thing and drain from sensor? use two washers?
