Hmm, looks like I may have found the oil drain plug gaskets, I already ordered a 5 pack of plugs with gaskets, but if I need them, in the future at least I know I can find them.
I seen some Dorman ones that were also made from metal/rubber...

Got the tools in today, will work on it later on, lost a lot of sleep the past two days, so I am going to try to take a nap..

I got this tool, and if you look at the pics where they show it is 13mm, you can see it is a 6pt socket, this thing is a 12pt, bahhhhhhh
Good thing is it looks like the swivel socket 13mm may work..

And done, 12pt socket or not, this abd boy saved the day.

I tried the flex socket first, but it was a tad too big, like 1/8th of an inch too big, if not less, lol

New oil in, old black oil out.
Added some Lube Guard oil additive, and 5 quarts of Mobil 1 Synthetic Extended life 5W30.
I also went with the longer oil filter, the Mobil 1 Extended Performance M1-201, it was a tight fit, so much so that I could not get a filter wrench on it to tighten it, I tried to put the wrench on it to see if I could use it to help get the filter off the next time I change it, good this I only just tighten it by hand.
I may have to use an old piece of serpentine belt or something to help me loosen it the next time I change the oil, as it is easier hand tightening it, than it is hand loosening it.

Now I just need to figure out what the hell pulley is squeaking, it deff gets louder with RPM'*..
Sounds like tensioner pulley, or maybe alternator pulley, I may see if I can figure it out with my lisle stethoscope.
Eh, just when I go to try to listen to it the squeaking stops, go figure, lol
