Hi, I just bought a Toyota Corolla 11 S. And I get free 2 years Toyota Care maintanance. But I'm curious about Oil drain plug gasket.

Do we need to change oil drain plug gasket? Coz as far as I know when I change engine oil, I just change engine oil and Oil filter.

This is for my reference when I change engine oil with private mechanic. Do I need to tell them to change oil drain plug gasket as well. Thank you very much for your help.

    THx patrick. Does most mechanic know that he needs to change drain plug gasket as well? Or do I need to tell him? So far, I see most mechanic always change engine oil and filter, but I didnt pay attention w/ drain plug gasket.
