I changed the engine oil today and while there I decided to do a dump and refill on the transmission as well. This is the first time I've had both drain plugs out at the same time. The transmission plug had a magnet in the center, but the engine oil plug had nothing. It looked like it had a place for a magnet, but no magnet.
My question is does the engine oil plug normally have a magnet? if so, does the transmission plug also normally have a magnet? I wonder if the 2 could have been switched at some point. It would make sense that both had magnets.
The car is the much maligned 02.
