Just wondering if GM has finally started putting the magnetic drain plugs in the LS6 yet. I had a late make 01 Coupe which did NOT have the magnetic plug when everyone was saying it did.

Anyone change their own oil on your 02 Z yet? Magnetic plug or not?

Thanks :D

What exactly is a magnetic plug ? Is this safe for use with your oil pan ? Does it simply just pull out with no threads ?????

RatedZ -- it's a regular drain plug with a magnet secured to the end of the plug end that sits in the oil. I picks up any magnetic steel that comes off the cams, bearings, etc that the filter can't trap. Alot of guys put them in if it doesn't come with one. You can get it at GM part counter for $3 .. sorry, don't have the p/n in front of me.

I just wonder why GM isn't putting them in everything these days. They must have bought into a train load of regular drainplugs somewhere along the line :D.
