Hi everyone, new here, just wanted to know the Torque Spec for the drain plug on an 06 Frontier 2WD with 4cyl engine. Also, is there anything else I should know before changing the oil? I already bought the crush washer and new drain plug, wondering if there was anything else. Thanks! :fluffy:

My '04 owner's manual has the torque spec for the oil plug (mine is 22-29 ft-lb). Hopefully, yours has it too if no one here has a service manual for the '06.

I think my manual calls for a new crush washer every change, but I don't think changing the oil plug is required (I'd have to look it up to see if there is a change interval, but it's not every change anyway).

I don't know about your '06, but the '04 requires the use of an anti-drainback filter. Probably not an issue if you're using a Nissan filter or a good brand name, but just something to think about.

Thanks for the suggestion Jerry, my manual listed it as 22-29ft-lbs as well. I figured I didn't need the drain plug, but it came with the washer, and at $1.99 it wasn't a bad deal. I bought a K&N Oil Filter so I don't expect I'll have any issues with that. Thanks for the help. :thumbup:
