You dont always have to change the drain plug gasket unless its torn or cracked, that gasket can last through many oil changes.

depends on the condition of the gasket. your car is new and probably does not need one. you should not have to tell the shop anything about there job if you trust them. i am from pa. sorry i cannot recommend a shop to you. Roy

THx for the answer roy. If we don't need to change drain plug gasket everytime we change oil. Why repairpal said that we need to change it everytime we change engine oil? How many miles about we should change drain plug gasket. Thx again for the answer.
