I just changed the oil and took off the 1/2" nut and used a pan to catch the oil, when I was finished draining, I looked at the nut and sifted thru the used oil for a copper washer or some sort of seal and found none. I looked at the nut, cleaned it and it looks like there is a rubber gasket seal built in. Is that the way they come. To be safe I am going to get a new one from the dealer for spare for future oil changes.

I don't remember but sometimes there are rubber washers built in to the nut. Sometimes too the washer sticks to the pan.

The rubber is built into the 1/2" nut. I bought a new one for $10 to use as a spare when the old nut doesnt seal anymore.
Thanks for responding.
