Magnetic Drain Plug by Dimple
Has anyone had any experience with Dimple magnetic drain plugs? I've been reading a couple of articles and watched the youtube videos and figure it's cheap enough to try out at least.
I sent them an email asking for cost and shipping charges to Canada and someone replied back asking to confirm the thread size of the oil drain plug - I've not been able to find this and my local Chrysler dealer is useless. When I called to ask them the thread size, they couldn't tell me and I made the mistake of telling them that I was ordering a non-OEM plug. That caused the guy to go into convulsions about the danger of installing non-OEM oil drain plugs and that, by his account, would cause horrific engine failure, a leak on my driveway to rival that of the Exxon Valdez and might even cause my wife to leave me.
I might have exaggerated a bit there, but I did get to listen to his 1 minute spiel.
Does anyone know the thread size for the oil drain plug of 2005 300C 5.7 HEMI?
