    Default OEM Silverado oil drain plugs.

    Since I change my own oil, I am asking where can one get the OEM drain plugs for the NNBS Silverados (besides the dealer).

    The ones I am talking about have the rubber o-ring built into the drain plug.

    Thanks.

    Autozone sells a few different drain plugs. I used one for my truck and it works great! Its just like the one you described with the o-ring built in.

    Or you could just buy the o rings separate for a couple bucks. Mine wore out and I just replaced it.

    So Autozone sells the drain plugs with the o-ring built in just like OEM?

    The OEM drain plug normally lasts for years, I just want 1 or 2 as a backup.

    I would try to get the part number from GM and then order them on amazon. Autozone does have drain plugs like you described. But, they did not have one for my 2002 5.3L or my wives 2008 torrent. You have to take yours with you, because they could not look it up for me. They just try to match what you bring in.

    Yah They had mine because the 350's almost all had the same drain plug so it was common. For another truck I would double check your thread sizes or bring yours. Likely the 5.3 uses the same plug as the 5.7.

    The 1999-2007 5.3L uses a M12-1.75 threaded plug. The 2011 4.8,5.3,6.0, and 6.2L all use a M12-1.75 drain plug also. So, what conlan found will work

    The 350 uses the same thread plug here's the one currently on my truck: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/par...7250_339485_0_

    Most GM trucks have metric bolts and threads because the bolts are mainly made in Canada

    I am having a hard time finding one with a built in gasket like that, that is also magnetic.
