magnetic oil drain plug
thought this was an excellect idea-so i bought it--its a magnetic oil drain plug-that collects metal particles in your oil-when you change your oil just wipe the particles off and re-plug--this has to be good for the motor life...

yeah i have one, works okay i guess. every oil change i do notice the tip of the magnet has a nice amount of microscopic shavings on it. also cool because when you do oil changes you can just stick it to the side of the oil pan while you let it drain, no losing the plug.

only thing is don't use that aluminum gasket they supply more than once. change it with a new gasket from toyota. supposedly you can use it over again but when i did it leaked abit.

so if they're microscopic...how do you notice them? j/k tongue

pretty cool, it can only help. it's worth noting though that almost all synthetic blend and pure synthetic oils have properties that suspend impurities (such as metal scrapings). but still like i said, it can only help to take the bits totally out of the equation. this is what i ASSUME anyway

ehh, there such a thing as an Oberg-type filter, usually in dry sump oil systems that catches debris, but it's not magnetic. it's basically just a screen.
