Can anyone tell me if the oil plug has more then a brass or copper washer on the bolt. Any pictures?
After an oil change I have a small leak. The bolt is tight but still leaking.

Service engine light is on MB sad to check the gas cap? Did not fix. Any other quick fixes before taking it to the dealer?

There is a single copper gasket on the drain plug.

Many causes for the 'check engine light' besides the gas cap. One common one is the MAF which sits by the air filter box. Do a search for this item to see what codes are kicked out and what others have done in the way of repair/replacement.

Did you reuse the washer? It should be changed with each oil change. I assume you have tried tightening more. Hopefully that will stop the leak.
