Oil Drain plug leaking o320

Post by Hendog458 » Mon Mar 23, 2015 12:30 pm

Really cleaned up the engine last weekend to try to trace down some oil leaks. After sitting all week, it looks like the oil drain plug is leaking from the bottom of the sump.

I didn't want to pull the plug to drain the oil this weekend. But has anyone had this issue before or anyone know any fixes?

Thanks!
