Q: Can anyone please tell me the size / thread size and pitch of the oil drain plug for a 2019 Forester?

I have part number 32195AA020 for the oil drain plug, but I cannot find the mechanical specs for it anywhere.

The part number for the oil drain plug crush gasket is 803916010

Thanks in advance.

Just out of curiosity. Why do you need to know?

You may want to double check that drain plug part number. It looks like it’s the plug for the transmission pan, not engine oil.

Does the 2019 oil drain plug have the same dinky 14mm head as the previous generation?

Yes - the drain plug on my 2019 Forester has the small 14mm hex-head.

I am looking to install a magnetic drain plug or a Fumoto style drain plug. The parts guy at my local Subaru dealership gave me P/N 32195AA020 for the existing drain plug part number. However, he may have given me the part number for the transmission drain plug by mistake.

Does anyone have the drain plug size and thread dimensions? Thanks!

I checked several reputable online Subaru parts suppliers and they all had the same part number for the 2019 oil drain plug as your dealership gave you.

PS This plug was also used in lots of other Subaru models for both oil pan and manual transmission pans. It is the correct part number for your engine oil drain plug.

I went to the Fumoto site, or maybe I called them, and Fumoto knew the correct size. Just enter make, model, year, engine.

I liked the Fumoto valve a lot for change it myself situations, but the quick oil change places didn't because of the slower drain rate.

I use an oil extractor now versus a Fumoto like in the past. Never getting under my car again and the OE gets all the oil out without issue. You can get one for around $50 and I use it on my generator, lawn mower, pressure washer, etc. AWESOME tool to have...I have had mine since 2009.

I use a 12 volt oil change pump. They are cheap and work fine, but only last about 15 oil changes before they crap out. As you can buy them for less than $ 20 on ebay the cost per change is low and, in fact, still way cheaper than one change at the dealer, or quick lube. I buy my oil at wally world for about $22 for 5 qts and get OEM filters on ebay for about $ 4 each. With the filter on top I never get under the car to do an oil change anymore. The only caution I would provide is to be sure you get all the oil out which you can do by twisting the extractor tube to be sure it gets into the bottom of the sump.

The Fumoto I received is the F108N. This has the nipple, but I have no worries about ground contact since the valve was purchased along with a Primitive skidplate.

I picked up a 17mm drain bolt at the dealer's parts counter in preparation for an upcoming oil change. (I'm having the first one at the dealer)

Label reads:

Plug - 16X17

807016210

I got out my micrometer and the treads are for a 16mm hole, and my 17mm socket fits the bolt. There is no mention of thread "pitch" (?) but 1.5 is the number I see on all others. Hope it's the right one.

Now, if they just don't tighten it to 8,000 lb/ft. LOL

I can't speak for the 2019 but that part number (807016210) fit my 2018 oil pan perfectly.

Hard and pricey to get Fumoto in Canada, I picked up an EZoilDrain from a local parts dealer that had it in stock (16x1.5).
Will put it on in six months... clearance should be ok.
