I'm doing the first oil change on my new to me 2006 frontier 6cyl and I was just breezing through it as I've done countless others but once I was finished and checking for leaks I noticed my new crush washer wasn't sitting flat like the previous one did. I torqued to 27ftlb and rechecked it twice but it just isn't flattening out. Anyone have any suggestions? The bolt was originally on really tight and I needed my impact driver to get it off. Threads are good though.

If it is not leaking your fine. Plus there is no pressure there.

It's not leaking. I'll keep an eye on it.
I did check to make sure all surfaces were clean before installing it. Everything looked good, but I'll give it a better inspection next oil change. I installed this one the same way the original(one side flat, other side rounded) was installed but I wonder if Nissan installed it upside down and just drilled it down until it crushed fully. It really seemed over tight when I was trying to remove it.
Thanks all
